Welcome to the Ultimate Netball Club
Preview: Mavericks Ready to Capitalise on Strong Start at Super Saturday

5th February 2016

Vitality Superleague Round 2

Hertfordshire Mavericks v Loughborough Lightning

Centre Pass 6.30 PM, Saturday 6th Feb

Tomorrow, Mavericks are excited to welcome our fans to the first home match of the season facing off against Loughborough Lightning.  We are expecting to see a sea of Purple and Black adorned supporters in full voice, and are confident of following up our win against Celtic Dragons last week with another to make it 2 out of 2.

 

Pleased with the result from Super Saturday but with lots to work on and improvements to come, the squad has been working hard all week and are primed and ready to take to court against a strong Loughborough side. 

 

Undoubtedly the defensive units will have a lot of work in front of them on Saturday and its here that we expect the experience of Layla, Lindsay, Sam May and Joline to shine through combined with younger talent such as Summer.

 

In the attacking circle – we expect more of the same.  It was fantastic to see such great shooting stats last week (100% for Sophie and George) and all of our shooters will be working to convert every opportunity tomorrow.  Mavericks intend to go out strong and have no quiet periods of play.  The team that hits the ground running will likely have the edge in this match and we are here to win.

 

Head Coach Sam Bird had this to say: “It's early in the season and this match will be a good contest to see how two strong teams match up- we are looking forward to the challenge …”
