After a couple of disappointing seasons, the Adelaide Thunderbirds are looking to make amends in 2017 and to move up the ladder and into finals contention. Some clever selections during the off season have bolstered the squad which now contains a good balance of youth and experience.
And to help the two times ANZ Championship winners get there again, they need your support at their seven home games this season which feature an even spread of lunch and night games at both Keswick and Findon. The complete home program is as follows :
19 February v West Coast Fever (1230pm Priceline Stadium) 5 March v Sunshine Coast Lightning (1230pm Titanium Security Arena) 25 March v Queensland Firebirds (815pm Titanium Security Arena) 8 April v Melbourne Vixens (815pm Priceline Stadium) 29 April v New South Wales Swifts (815pm Titanium Security Arena) 7 May v Giants (1230pm Priceline Stadium) 28 May v Collingwood (1230pm Titanium Security Arena)
Priceline Stadium is located at 155 Railway Terrace, Keswick, while the Titanium Security Arena is located at 44A Crittenden Rd, Findon. Both venues hold big crowds, and the Adelaide Thunderbirds are looking for maximum attendance to help cheer them to victory.
Their courageous captain, Erin Bell, returns for her 8th season at the club and is joined by the current captains of the English and Jamaican national netball teams being Ama Agbeze and Malysha Kelly. And adding to the experience is Jade Clarke, the most capped English player in history.
The Australian under 21 squad features three of the younger Thunderbirds being Hannah Petty, Emily Burgess and Jane Cook, all of whom are looking to gain more experience, enhance their skills and further their opportunities in the national squad.
In addition to the playing ranks, the coaches box has also been bolstered with the inclusion of the experienced Jane Searle to assist Dan Ryan, Todd Andrews and Jenny Borlase in getting the team into shape for that tilt at the championship.
