Scotland have announced the twelve athletes who will be representing the Thistles at the Gold Coast this April.
This will be Scotland’s second ever appearance on the Commonwealth Stage. Five of the twelve athletes were present four years ago in Glasgow. Captain Claire Brownie, Lynsey Gallagher, Hayley Mulheron, Samantha Murphy, Fiona Fowler (nee Themann) and Jo Pettitt will all be making their second Commonwealth Games appearance.
Elsewhere in the squad are three players aged twenty or younger. Bethany Sutherland captained the Thistles under 21 side during last years Netball World Youth Cup in which the team finished eighth. Niamh McCall became the first player born in the 2000s to receive a senior cap for the Thistles and is also included in the squad.
Scotland have enjoyed a good start to 2018 by qualifying for next years World Cup by finishing in first place from the Netball Europe Regional Qualifiers in January. As a result, the same squad from that event has been selected for the Gold Coast.
Scotland begin their Commonwealth Games campaign against England on April 5th.
