Team Bath¹s netballers have made sure of a top-three finish in phase one of
the Superleague ­ and with it a place in the Showdown League for phase two.

Team Bath overcame Yorkshire Jets 54-51 in Friday night¹s penultimate phase
one game.

They travel to Hertfordshire Mavericks on Friday (22 March) for their last
game of phase one in joint first place with Surrey Storm.

Defender Samantha Cook made a welcome return from injury against Jets
playing the second half of the game.

Head coach Jess Thirlby said the Mavericks clash is an important fixture for
the team. ³It's a really important game for us and Bath v Mavericks has
never let anyone down. It¹s an important part of our preparation for phase
two.²

Eight of Team Bath¹s players will be away on England duty between the
Mavericks fixture and the Showdown League ­ with Pamela Cookey, Kadeen
Corbin, Serena Guthrie, Stacey Francis and Mia Ritchie travelling to Jamaica
with the senior England team and Rosie Allison, Samantha Cook and Yasmin
Parsons in Australia with the under-21s.

³After this game eight of our players will be away on tour with England, so
we won¹t have them together to train as a team,² said Thirlby.

³That said, they will be away playing top quality competitive netball, so
we¹d expect them to come back prepared, match fit and ready to go for the
second phase of the Superleague.²

Details of Team Bath¹s home fixture for the Showdown League should be
available early next week ­ so keep an eye on the Team Bath website for

Meanwhile, the University of Bath firsts bid to retain their British
Universities and Colleges Sport title when the take on UWIC tomorrow
