2022 VNSL club preview: Team Bath

BOASTING a starting seven that will be stacked with international representatives, Team Bath will be one of the 2022 Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) contenders. They have a rock solid defence, star-studded midcourt and reliable attacking circle, making them very tricky to come up against.

2022 SQUAD:


Lily-May Catling (GD/GK/WD)
Layla Guscoth (GD/GK/WD)
Phumza Maweni (GD/GK)
Molly Hole (GK/GS)
Tash Pavelin (GK/GD/WD)


Imogen Allison (C/WD)
Serena Guthrie (C/WD)
Kirsty Harris (C/WA)
Jessica Shaw (C/WA)
Rachel Shaw (WA/gA)


Kim Borger (GA/GS)
Betsy Creak (GA/GS)
Sophie Drakeford-Lewis (GA/WA)
Lily Jones (GA/GS)
Hannah Passmore (GA/GS)

The Team Bath lineup is as strong as ever, with incredible depth in the goal circle. The combination of Borger and Drakeford-Lewis is phenomenal, and with a midcourt that could be stacked with English Roses, it is hard not imagine Team Bath being one of the title contenders. Guscoth and Maweni are among the best defenders in the world, and combining them will complete the overall team, in what is arguably the most balanced starting seven in the VNSL.
