The Northern Stars are proving their talent after three players were selected for the Silver Ferns squad earlier in August.
Newly-signed Stars player Grace Rasmussen, along with Kayla Cullen and Maia Wilson were named in the 2017/18 Silver Ferns’ squad.
Grace, who formerly played for the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic, will bring her experience to the local side.
On the ANZ Premiership front, mid-courter Fa’amu Ioane and defender Holly Fowler have re-signed with the Stars for the next season. Holly, is ready to play for the team after recovering from an injury during pre-season which left her out of play.
The South Auckland based team also have a new coach, Kiri Wills. Kiri was former coach of the New Zealand under-21 squad who won the title at the Netball World Youth Cup in Botswana in July.
“I’m delighted to see the squad start to take shape with Maia, Holly and Fa’amu joining Grace on court for the Stars,” Kiri said.
“It has been an ambition of mine to guide a team in the ANZ Premiership and it’s exciting to do that with the newest one,” Kiri said.
“Now it’s my challenge to get the best out of the Stars on a regular basis.”
