Asha to captain Team Bath for 2013 Superleague campaign

Asha Francis will captain Team Bath for the new Netball Superleague season, with Serena Guthrie as her vice-captain.

Team Bath begin their 2013 campaign at home to Celtic Dragons on Thursday (7 February) in a game being televised live on Sky Asha Tett - Superleague 2011Sports.

Asha (right), a Singapore international, retains the captaincy from the 2012 Superleague season.

She lifted the FastNet Grand Prix trophy, which Team Bath won for the first time last month, and said: “It’s been a long build-up to the season and we’re really excited about getting going.”

2013 marks Serena’s first season as vice-captain and her appointment comes after she played a starring role in midcourt in helping England secure a historic 3-0 series win over world champions Australia.

Serena said: “Everyone knows I’m not the most serious member of the team, but it’s a real privilege and honour to be given the opportunity to be vice-captain this season.

“We’ve got some really strong leaders in the team and we’re really looking forward to the first game. “

Jess Thirlby, Team Bath’s head coach, added: “Asha and Serena will make a great partnership, but we’re lucky enough to have a team of leaders on court.

“We’ve been training hard and we’re raring to go on Thursday night,” she added.
