George Fisher Signs with benecosMavericks for the 2019 VNSL season

We are excited to share that England Netball star George Fisher has signed for benecosMavericks for the 2019 Vitality Netball League season.

George Fisher began her netball career with Mavericks Youth U19 NPL squad when she was 13 and her VNSL debut in the 2015/16 season.  Following two Championship winning seasons with Wasps Netball, George is returning home to benecosMavericks.  George will also shortly be joining the England Roses squad in New Zealand for the FastFive competition and Jamaica for the upcoming Test Series v The Sunshine Girls.

George had this to say about returning to benecosMavericks:”I’m really excited about coming back to Mavericks as it is the place where I started my netball career and where I realised netball was a true passion of mine.  It’s always been like home for me as I started playing here when I was only 13.”

“I have loved my last two years at Wasps and have learnt so much about my sport, winning two SuperLeague titles was amazing and it was incredible to be part of the start of something.  But I feel now is the right time for me to be coming home and I’m excited about what this season could bring.”

George scored almost 600 goals in the 2018 VNSL season and benecosMavericks director of netball, Kathryn Ratnapala is excited about what she can bring to the team: “I’m absolutely thrilled that George has made the decision to come home to Mavericks.  She has always been a star in our eyes and we are excited to get her back into the purple and black dress and out onto court as quickly as possible.”

benecosMavericks are delighted to be welcoming George back onto the playing roster. Further squad announcements will be made over the coming weeks and details of 2019 ticket sales will be released soon along with details of some exciting pre-season friendlies.
