She's Coming Home - Sasha Corbin to Captain Mavericks in 2017/18 VNSL Season

14th September 2017

We are delighted to welcome Sasha Corbin home to Mavericks and announce her appointment as Captain for the 2017 Vitality Netball SuperLeague Season.   Sasha Corbin, a long time member of the Mavericks family having played with the squad for 5 season (captaining from 2013 to 2015), is currently in New Zealand with the England Roses and will be joining the team here shortly.  Sasha spent last season strutting her stuff for the Northern Mystics in the ANZ league in New Zealand.

Sasha Corbin had this to say about her return home to Mavericks:”I can't wait to be suiting back up in the black and purple next season. Mavericks is a club that's close to my heart, giving me my first start as a young teen & continuing my development as a player after my university studies.”

“After overcoming my ACL injury, travelling & having a fantastic life & netball experience in New Zealand last season, I am truly looking forward to being settled at home, bringing my experience, growing as an athlete and person in a great environment with an exciting new team.

 Kathryn Ratnapala, Mavericks Director of Nebtall added: “I’m really excited to welcome Sasha back into the Mavericks family, she is a phenomenal athlete and person and I’m really looking forward to getting her back in black and purple for the forthcoming season!  Sasha is a true Mavericks and embodies everything we stand for – flair, excitement, high level skill and the unexpected – keeping fans and opposition on their toes.  She is a class act and has fantastic leadership qualities and experience to bring to the squad this season.”
