Following the news that Halimat Adio will require further knee surgery the following players have been promoted into the London Pulse VNSL squad:
Alicia Scholes promoted from training partner to VNSL
Jada Pechova promoted to Training Partner.
Sam Bird “It’s always hard when a player requires surgery and we are particularly sad that Hali requires further knee surgery following an injury sustained last season. Hali will be supported by London Pulse and England netball through her surgery, rehabilitation and return to court. Hali will also remain an active leader in the club and will undertake other club duties whilst she recovers.”
“She is a valued member of the club and we will do everything we can to help Hali recover. Hali’s injury means that Alicia now comes into the squad and she is very deserving of this inclusion. Alicia has been working really hard at training and has impressed the staff with her willingness to learn and develop further together with her dynamic, fast paced, style of play. Alicia also an England u21 player, has made a huge commitment to move to London and it’s good to be able to reward her for her hard work and effort.”
“Jayda has also impressed at training and in a number of senior squad friendlies and as another promising young England defender it’s a great chance for Jayda to learn from the other fantastic defenders at London Pulse.”
