England squad featuring NSL stars selected for Vitality Netball Nations Cup

Amongst a strong 14 squad selected, 10 NSL stars have been chosen to represent their country at the beginning of the new year.

Held across the weekends 20-21 and 27-28 January at OVO Arena Wembley and the First Direct Arena in Leeds, England will face New Zealand, Australia and Uganda in a four-day tournament in what is set to be an incredible showcase of international netball to start the New Year.

Netball World Cup captain, Manchester Thunder skipper and fan favourite, Nat Metcalf makes her return to the squad after her extended break, whilst her new teammate Imogen Allison also comes back in the new year.
