Strathclyde Sirens announce four returning players for the 2024 season

Strathclyde Sirens announce the return of four stalwarts, as they begin to reveal their 2024 squad.

Emily Nicholl, Towera Vinkhumbo, Beth Goodwin and Cerys Cairns are all returning to the Netball Super League (NSL) with the Scottish outfit.

Head Coach Lesley MacDonald has echoed the collective excitement of Sirens’ fans. “They have been huge for Sirens over the last couple of seasons, huge individuals who are embedded into the Sirens DNA,”

MacDonald further emphasises: “We will again be looking for them to step up this season both on and off the court to ensure we bring together this new look team.”

Co-captain from the 2023 season, Emily Nicholl returns to Sirens. Head Coach MacDonald has praised Nicholl as a ‘fierce competitor’ and predicts that 2024 will be her best season yet.

Nicholl had a strong performance on the international stage this summer, representing Scotland at the Netball World Cup in South Africa, and can be expected to bring these layers of experience to the court next season.

Leading the league in 2023 for interceptions and turnovers, Malawi international Towera Vinkhumbo also remains with the Scottish side. After a standout season for Sirens in 2023, Vinkhumbo went on to play a key role internationally at the Netball World Cup in South Africa, helping Malawi to secure a 7th place finish at the competition.

For Head Coach Lesley MacDonald, Towera’s leadership and work rate is central, going on to say: “She’s not just a player; she’s an embodiment of the Sirens’ fighting spirit.”

Bethan Goodwin, another World Cup player for Scotland, also re-signs for the Sirens. Praised for her versatility, Goodwin brings a range of options in the shooting circle for the Scottish side. And she is excited to make her return:

I can’t wait for the season ahead, it’s always an honour putting on the sirens dress and playing in front of our home crowd.”

Goodwin will be joined in the shooting circle by compatriot Cerys Cairns who travelled to South Africa this summer as part of Scotland’s World Cup squad.

Cairns relishes the challenge of the season ahead and reflects on the makeup squad: “I think we have a squad who are a mix of youth and experienced players who will push each other to be better.”
