Sirens make waves in pre seaon

Sirens started their pre-season with games against Thunder and Stars

Breaking New Ground Against Stars
First up, the Strathclyde Sirens faced the transformed Severn Stars, a team that turned heads last season. The final score was 45-41 in favour of Severn Stars.

Coach Lesley MacDonald commented on their performance: “We asked them to execute certain processes, and for a large majority, we were able to stick to the task.”

“Building a new team will take time, but I’m happy with how the team have taken on board the Sirens’ way and are trying to implement it on the court.”

Each game will allow us to continue building these processes and understanding. Therefore, I’m happy with where our baseline is. Now, it’s about starting to push the consistency over the coming matches.”

Challenging the Thunderous Storm
The Strathclyde Sirens, known for their relentless spirit, faced their perennial rivals, Manchester Thunder, in a fierce showdown. The final score was 52-32 in favour of Manchester Thunder.

Although victory remained elusive, Head Coach Lesley MacDonald saw tremendous promise.

She remarked, “It was important that we got a measure of where our baseline is. We ran a number of combinations as it was important that they all got the court time to build connections and understand what is needed from each other.”

Leighton’s Debut Impact
New signing Hannah Leighton made her presence felt, impressing coaches with her performance.

Leighton, while new to Sirens, has spent her summer representing Scotland with her Scottish Thistle teammates in South Africa, competing at the Netball World Cup. This international experience has undoubtedly enriched her skills and added depth to the Sirens’ line-up.

Our main focus was to continue building the connections within the team. It was good for us to explore different options and start to build our style of play going into the season. It was great to be back out on court.”

A Promising Journey Ahead
As the dust settles on this pre-season weekend, the Strathclyde Sirens are more determined than ever. They have not only measured their baseline but are already building the foundations of a united, dynamic team that’s ready to make waves.

Strathclyde Sirens will continue their pre-season preparations with training matches against their Celtic rivals, Cardiff Dragons in December and a battle on home turf in January against Leeds Rhinos who finished just one point above them last season.

The Sirens Tribe can look forward to an electrifying season filled with passion, resilience, and unwavering support.
