ENGLAND international and Vitality Netball Superleague winner Lucy Harris has joined the Severn Stars for the new campaign.

The 22-year-old mid-court star, who was part of the England Team in the Malawi Series and last year won the title Wasps Netball last season, has been confirmed as the first addition for the 2019 campaign.

Lucy’s competitive career was kick-started in 2012 when she won national school championships in her U16 team.

Since then she has gone on to represent the England U19s squad in the 2014 Glasgow tour.

“I am really looking forward to meeting all my new team mates and coaching staff and am ready to see what we can pull together this season,” she said.

“I really pushed myself last year and developed a lot of mental resilience and I’m ready to bring that to my new team.

“I think the Severn Stars’ style of being fast paced suits me well and am excited to step out on court.”

She will be joining fellow athletes Jodie Gibson and Iona Darroch, who have been with the club, a joint franchise between the University of Worcester and University of Gloucestershire, since its inaugural season in 2017.

Head coach Sam Bird said: “Lucy is a fantastic addition to our squad in the mid court. She’s a hard-working, rapid middie and has the flair that suits our Severn Stars style.”
