Layla Guscoth Team Bath - VNSL 2022 Semi-Final

Surrey Storm have announced the signing of Vitality Rose and Vitality Netball Superleague Player of the Season Layla Guscoth for the 2023 campaign.

Last season the 30 year-old finished top of the standings for intercepts (65), turnovers (108) and third for deflections (86) earning her the biggest individual award you can win as a VNSL player, being voted Vitality Player of the Season.

The athletic goal defence was also recognised across the league being selected to the All-Star 7 VNSL team at GD.

Guscoth brings with her a wealth of experience having played at every level possible across the sport.

After making her international debut with the Vitality Roses in 2012, she has since played at the 2019 World Cup, winning a bronze medal, as well as the most recent Commonwealth Games in her hometown, Birmingham.

At a club level Guscoth has had an extensive VNSL career which spans Mavericks from 2011 through to most recently Team Bath.  In that time she has won a VNSL title and has played overseas in the Suncorp Super Netball league for Adelaide Thunderbirds.

Excited to be joining Surrey Storm, Layla commented: “I am really looking forward to the upcoming season with storm.

“It’s exciting for me to have a new challenge and new environment, seeing the growth of Storm and the togetherness of the team is something I can’t wait to be a part of.”

Delighted with this signing Head Coach Mikki Austin said: “As one of the best defenders in world netball right now, and one of the most sort after players, we are ecstatic to sign Layla to Surrey Storm.

“Layla brings a wealth of domestic and international experience along with a ball winning ability unlike any other. Alongside what she brings as a netballer, Layla is also a fantastic person to add into our environment to raise the standard and continue to push our mental toughness.”
