England call-up Imogen Allison is now the fourth player to register to Team Bath for its 2020 Vitality Superleague season.
Allison’s kind last season earned her a nomination for its 2019 Superleague Young Player of the Year Award and a location in new England head coach Jess Thirlby’s initial Roses group, along with Sophie Drakeford-Lewis and Summer Artman, to get a behind-closed-doors championship in Australia and New Zealand later this month.
She demonstrated her leadership skills by taking over the captaincy while Serena Guthrie along with Eboni Usoro-Brown have been on international duty last season.
Allison will continue to unite international and club netball using a Sports & Exercise Science degree in the University of Bath, but she’s currently excited about the challenge.
“I felt like I actually climbed in my role in the group last season and being named as captain proved to be a excellent experience,” said the 21-year-old Allison. “I take pleasure in the leadership job and hopefully I’ll have more chances such as that going forward.
“It is quite exciting to be back in the England setup too. It seems like a fantastic time to be together with all the Roses, particularly for athletes of the age as we seem to build on the achievement of the last couple of years.”
Team Bath Netball Superleague head trainer Anna Stembridge said:”I am absolutely delighted that Imo will probably be returning to the Blue & Gold this year. She took her game to a whole new level and had been amazing for us last time, not just tactically and technically however the way by which she led in the front and controlled the line.
“I think she is among those Superleague’s brightest stars and among the club’s future leaders. I’m really excited about establishing on Imo’s performances and direction from last year.”
