Michael Greenwood Jnr., co-owner of Netball UK Northern Thunder,
commented, "Together with the separate counties that make up the North
West region, the franchise's new committee is preparing a five-year plan
to develop netball throughout the region. Funding will be provided for the
regions' High Performance Squad, linking it with the England National
Talent League squad. From this youth system the best of the youngsters
will feed into the full Co-operative Netball Superleague squad - and
ultimately the prospect of appearing in a televised match - with Northern
Thunder challenging for title honours. That is our aim"!!
