Emma Dovey will lead Manchester Thunder for the 2021 Vitality Netball Superleague season.

The defender will be at the helm for a fourth consecutive season and becomes the fourth player to be announced ahead of the outfit’s new campaign.

Alongside Dovey, Caroline O’Hanlon and two younger Thunder players – Berri Neil and Lois Pearson – have been confirmed and all are eager to pick up where they left off in 2020.
