Sunshine Girls remain optimistic although they’re missing key players. They believe that they can still beat England when they face off in January’s three-Test Vitality Netball International Series. According to Tricia Robinson, the president of Netball Jamaica, the Sunshine Girls 14-member squad is still optimistic that they can win all three games.
the Jamaican national netball team will be without centre Adean Thomas as well as top defenders Latanya Wilson and Shamera Sterling. Thomas was one of the best players when Jamaica won the silver medal at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, in August.
The Sunshine Girls will be led by Captain and ace goal shooter Jhaniele Fowler, as well as Vice-Captain Shanice Beckford. Other major contributors include Nicole Dixon-Rocherster, Khadijah WIlliams, Rebekah Robinson, Kadie-Ann Dehaney, Shimona Nelson and Jodi-Ann Ward. All these players participated at this year’s Commonwealth Games.
Veteran defender Malysha Kelly is also making her comeback in the upcoming tournament. Other members include Theresa Beckford, Abigale Sutherland, Crystal Plummer, Roxonna McLean, Crystal Plummer and Tafiya Hunter.
However, this is still a talented squad and many Jamaicans will be expecting a solid showing in the series.
