Greenway, who has eight international caps, has been called up to replace her TeamBath colleague Rachel Dunn, who was forced to withdraw from the squad with a knee injury, which she suffered during England’s recent 3-0 series win over rivals Jamaica.
“The England selectors have been impressed with Tamsin’s performances throughout the last season, and for England A during the Spotlight games against the World Championships squad,” comments Nigel Holl, Director of Netball at England Netball. “While Rachel’s injury, so close to such a major championships, is a devastating blow for her, we are very fortunate to have a player like Tamsin available to step into her shoes, and with her international experience and current excellent form, she gives our attacking line another option going into November’s competition.”
24 year old Greenway, originally from Leicester, made her England debut in 2004 and was part of the England squad which recently defeated reigning World Champions New Zealand for the first time in 32 years at the Manchester Evening News Arena. She was a key member of the TeamBath squad which retained its Netball Superleague title earlier in the year.
Meanwhile, Rachel Dunn has had surgery on her injured knee and is now entering a period of recovery and rehabilitation. “We wish Rachel a swift and successful recovery and look forward to welcoming her back onto court as soon as her rehabilitation is completed,” says Holl. “She is a dedicated athlete and a valued member of our squad, and we look forward to her speedy return.”
