Inside the Circle: A documentary series

Introducing Inside the Circle! A documentary series showcasing the behind-the-scenes activity of some of our Netball Super League (NSL) teams.

The series highlights Severn Stars, Manchester Thunder and Strathclyde Sirens, discussing the highs and the lows of player experiences, new-look clubs and a look at what the future could hold.

Severn Stars

Following a disappointing 2022 season where they finished bottom of the table, 2023 would be a year of revival for Severn Stars under their new Head Coach, Jo Trip.

After coming into the role late in the summer, Trip set about putting together a team of players with plenty to prove, that would spring a whole host of surprises this season as they finished a club record of sixth.

Their secret? Embracing themselves, each other and everything in between.

Manchester Thunder

After going undefeated on their way to a fourth NSL title, Manchester Thunder were pushed to restructure their squad in Summer 2022, as key players such as Laura Malcolm and Eleanor Cardwell fled the nest.

Alongside key import, Lenize Potgieter, Thunder looked to their pathway, recruiting young players who had come through the North West system but had played elsewhere, such as Taylor McKevitt and Iona Christian, to rebuild their team alongside talented youngsters already in their ranks, such as Amy Carter and Lois Pearson.

Strathclyde Sirens

Proudly Scotland’s only NSL team, Strathclyde Sirens hold the nexus of the Thistles squad heading to South Africa this summer.

But Sirens also have a proud international thread running through them, with Glasgow often the first point of arrival for a lot of the international talent in the NSL.

The journey of how Sirens have grown in lockstep with the national team ahead of the Netball World Cup and the growth of Scottish netball, is one to certainly watch out for.

You can watch Inside the Circle: Severn Stars on Wednesday 12 July on the NSL YouTube channel with other episodes airing later in the month.
