Netball - 16. September 2007.

England Arrive for Jamaican Tests

And with the World Championships less than two months away, the series will represent a significant competitive opportunity for both sides to hone and refine their game plans ahead of the main event.


Having defeated reigning World Champions New Zealand for the first time in 32 years earlier this year, spirits in the England camp are high, but, as Marg Caldow, the England coach comments, Jamaica will offer a stern challenge for the visitors:


"We are going to play some world class netball and expect to have a good contest against the Jamaicans. I know they have been working extremely hard and are looking forward to performing well against us, as we are against them. We have always had good contests against each other and I don't see this series being any different. We have just come off a five week lay off and have been back on the court for a month, so we are looking forward to this visit to get some really tough competition leading into the World Championships."


The first test in the three match series takes place at Jamaica's National Indoor Centre on Monday evening (17 September), with subsequent matches taking place on 19 and 20 September. When the two teams last met, England defeated Jamaica 53-52 to take the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. The World Championships start in Auckland on 10 November.
