Severn Stars have announced their 2021 team today ahead of the new NSL season.
Melissa Bessell’s team will again be led by Liana Leota as captain and Nia Jones as vice-captain; Jamaican international Malysha Kelly will be joining the franchise’s defensive end for the 2021 season.
“Everyone will look at this squad and say that it’s the same, and that’s because it is. I am really pleased to be able to have kept this squad together again,” Bessell told Sky Sports.
“I think that it’s really important to have continuity. We formed and built such a great culture as we came together as a new group last year. Then, being able to bring Malysha into the mix is wonderful because she is going to add so much to the group too.”
Severn Stars Squad:
Liana Leota (captain), Nia Jones (vice-captain), Georgia Rowe, Bethan Dyke, Paige Reed, Lucy Harris, Jane Taylor, Lucy Herdman and Malysha Kelly. Final player subject to contract clearance.
Ellie Gibbons, Iman Thomas, Hannah Howl, Chloe Carchrie and Issy Eaton.
