Jamaica’s Nicole Aiken-Pinnock and New Zealand’s Ellen Halpenny head to the UK

The Scottish Sirens are the newest franchise in the English Superleague, and have recruited former Jamaica captain Nicole Aiken-Pinnock and New Zealand’s Ellen Halpenny


Aiken-Pinnock will join Scottish Thistles’ emerging goal attack Jo Pettitt in replacing Althea Byfield and Lynsey Gallagher in the Sirens line-up for the upcoming Super League season scheduled to begin in February.

While Halpenny, who played for Canterbury Tactix and Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic in the ANZ Championship, has been brought in as goal shooter.

The Sirens will be one of the three new teams, along with Severn Stars and Wasps in the top flight domestic league next season and the changes are seen as another big step forward in developing the sport.

Led by head coach Gail Parata and Franchise Director Karen McElveen, the Sirens have combined a squad of international and home-grown recruits that will play at the new £113m Emirates Arena in Glagow and will be supported by the University of the West of Scotland.
