Bethan Goodwin is an exciting attacking prospect for Netball Scotland. At 21-years-old, with 19 international caps under her belt, there is a bright future in netball for this young Thistle.
Highly impressive and consistent performances at the Netball Europe Championships secured Goodwin a place in the national squad, as well as the starting position of goal shooter. Goodwin has also proven herself to have great leadership potential, captaining the Scottish Under 17 side in 2015 and 2016, where she was awarded Player of the Tournament in 2016.
She debuted for the Scottish senior team at 16-years-old at Netball Europe and was named Player of the Tournament. Goodwin made her Commonwealth Games debut at the 2018 Gold Coast Games, and her Netball World Cup debut in 2019 in Liverpool.
Domestically, Goodwin plies her trade for Strathclyde Sirens in the Vitality Netball Superleague, based in Glasgow. She has been part of the franchise for four years, and is the side's starting goal shooter. Combining well with the likes of Lynsey Gallagher both domestically for the Strathclyde Sirens, and internationally for the Scottish Thistles, these two cultivate a balanced and exciting shooting circle. What is exciting to consider is how Goodwin’s attacking play and court craft can further flourish under the newly appointed Scotland head coach, Tamsin Greenway.
