Reed signs for Manchester Thunder for NSL 2024 season

Manchester Thunder have signed England Future Rose Paige Reed from local rivals Leeds Rhinos.

The 26-year-old makes the move over The Pennines from Yorkshire where she appeared in all 18 games for Rhinos last season and scored 310 goals.

Paige is the third shooter to be announced for Thunder the 2024 season, joining Lois Pearson and Anya Williams in the shooting circle, creating a talented blend of young and dynamic players.

Hailing from Gloucester, Paige started her Netball Super League career at Team Bath before moving for a new opportunity at Severn Stars in 2019. Establishing herself at the Midlands-based club she was head-hunted by Leeds Rhinos and followed former Thunder and Severn Stars player Liana Leota there.

Reed said: “I’ve heard a lot about Thunder being a very close-knit team, and they always seem really together with a family environment. So, I’m really looking forward to just being a part of it and getting to know everyone properly and play on court with everyone.

“I like to work with different styles of play, and I like to think I’m quite adaptable so I’m really looking forward to getting involved with the Thunder style of play and the clinical style and see where and how I can add my style to the environment.”

Head Coach, Karen Greig added: “I’m delighted to have signed Paige for the 2024 season. She’s a player I have admired for a number of seasons and I think she will be a great fit for Thunder, as she is a skilful, hard-working athlete who isn’t afraid to go to the post from anywhere and her ability to be able to play across GA and GS will be invaluable for us.

“I have heard great things about her as an athlete off court too, which is key for us when signing new players. I am certain she will add a lot to the Manchester Thunder environment, and I can’t wait to get started working with her.”

Reed has been a part of the Roses Futures programme since 2019 and has been selected for the 2023- 2024 season. She has also played in the FAST5 Netball World Series with the Vitality Roses in 2022 gaining invaluable experience in New Zealand.
