Blue and Gold duo help England produce sensational comeback to beat New Zealand in Quad Series

Team Bath Netball’s Eboni Beckford-Chambers and Kadeen Corbin helped England to a famous comeback victory over New Zealand at London’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday.

Blue and Gold captain Beckford-Chambers came on at goal-defence for a sensational final quarter that saw the Roses rally from 43-37 down to draw level at 49-49.

Goal-shooter Corbin missed a chance to win the match in the dying seconds of normal time but put that disappointment firmly behind her during the two seven-minute periods of extra-time, producing several nerveless finishes as England stormed to a 64-57 victory over the nation ranked number two in the world.

Former Team Bath player Serena Guthrie was named player of the match after producing several vital turnovers to help England over the line.

Next up for England in the Quad Series is Monday’s match against World and Commonwealth champions Australia, again at the Copper Box Arena (7.45pm).
