Blue & Gold star Imogen Allison named in Vitality Roses squad for 2023 Netball World Cup in South Africa

Team Bath Netball’s Imogen Allison has been named in the England squad for the 2023 Netball World Cup, taking place in South Africa from 28th July to 6th August.

It will be a first senior World Cup for the dynamic mid-courter, who helped England win bronze at the World Youth Cup in 2017.

Allison has won 28 senior caps since making her Vitality Roses debut in 2020 and was a standout performer on her previous appearance at a major tournament, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games last summer.

She is joined in the 12-strong squad, announced today by former Team Bath player and Head Coach Jess Thirlby, by ex-Blue & Gold Super League defenders Layla Guscoth and Geva Mentor, the latter making a record-equalling sixth Netball World Cup appearance. Sophie Drakeford-Lewis – who, like Allison, is a University of Bath alumna – has been named as a travelling reserve.

England have been drawn in Group B and will face Barbados, Malawi and Scotland in Preliminary Stage One.

Team Bath Netball is supported by its Principal and Pathway Partner, chartered accountants Haines WattsBath Building Society and Rengen Developments, who are overall Team Bath Partners; Centurion Chartered Financial PlannersEcus Ltd, our environment partner; and PDS Coaching, who provide performance mentoring.
