Vitality Netball Superleague

 Round 7 Preview: Hertfordshire Mavericks V Surrey Storm

 

Round 6 saw Hertfordshire Mavericks back to where we want to be - winning.  The squad did everything that was asked of them against Team Bath and secured the win.  But Round 6 was the round of upsets and with Manchester Thunder losing their unbeaten streak, Mavericks enter Round 7 in second place in the league – equal on points with the table leaders.

But don’t be mistaken, we are not taking anything for granted.  We know we face a strong Surrey Storm side who will be buoyed by their win against Thunder on Monday.  So its been back to the grindstone this week.  Preparing in earnest for what we know will be a tough test in front of 6000 netball fans.  We’ve prepared on the court and off the court.  We have made sure there will be no surprises and we are ready to take this game to Surrey on every inch of the CopperBox court.

Head Coach, Sam Bird said: “The squad have worked so well together this week with an extra session on Wednesday tightening up on the game strategy. London Live is a great event be involved in bringing the London rivals together for what we expect to be a good encounter. I am expecting a strong performance from the squad who I know cannot wait for the first centre pass tomorrow.”

We know that a huge amount of our fans are making the journey to the CopperBox and we are so grateful to have you behind us.  As always we ask you to dress in purple and make your voices heard.  The team really are spurred on by your vocal support during the game.  We really do have the best fans!  We plan to give you the win you have come for!

If you can’t make it in person on Saturday, don’t forget we will be live on Sky Sports 5 from 5.30PM and you can also follow the match via our Twitter Feed – follow @hertsmavericks – Team news will be shared at 17.30 and FCP is at 18.00
