Greene-Noel to captain Trinidad and Tobago at Commonwealth Games

Picture by Alex Whitehead/SWpix.com - 17/07/2019 - Netball - Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 - Trinidad & Tobago v England - M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool, England - Helen Housby of England and Shaquanda Greene of Trinidad & Tobago.

Shaquanda Greene-Noel has been selected to represent her nation, Trinidad and Tobago, at the 2022 Commonwealth Games later this month.

The defender will captain the Calypso Girls’ squad of 12 during the tournament in Birmingham when their campaign begins on Friday 29 July.

Greene-Noel’s side face hosts England at 12:00 before going onto take on fellow Group B sides Uganda, New Zealand, Malawi, and Northern Ireland.

Despite having played at major international tournaments in the past, notably the 2019 Vitality Netball World Cup, this will be Greene-Noel’s first Commonwealth Games.

Speaking on Twitter, she said: “Beyond humble and grateful to be selected to captain and represent the Calypso Girls at the Commonwealth Games… my first Commonwealth Games! Still unreal.”

The 26-year-old earned her selection after a stellar debut Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) campaign for Celtic Dragons earlier this year.

Greene-Noel earned many fans due to her passion for the game but also impressed in the Welsh side’s defensive end. In fact, no player gained more turnovers than Greene-Noel’s 119 last season. The Trinidadian also finished third for intercepts with 57 and third in the league for deflections with 93.

Her performances in a green dress helped Dragons to a much-improved finish in the league when compared to 2021. Titmuss-Morris’ side earned three times the amount of points they amassed the previous season.

Greene-Noel is the only VNSL representative in the Trinidad and Tobago squad, but adds to the number of #VNSL2022 players who will be making the trip to Birmingham.

The full squad is as follows: Shaquanda Greene-Noel, Aniecia Baptiste, Jeresia McEachrane, Joelisa Cooper, Afeisha Noel, Tiana Dillon, Tahirah Hollingsworth, Tia Bruno, Janeisha Cassimy, Oprah Douglas, Faith Hagley, Shantel Seemungal.

The squads of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Jamaica, Wales and now Trinidad and Tobago will have Superleague stars feature in Birmingham with some nations still yet to announce.
