Celtic Dragons is thrilled to announce that Wales Under 21 shooter, Morganne Dunn, will be joining the franchise for her very first season in the Vitality Netball Superleague.
Dunn has made a name for herself already during her age group netball career, being a part of both Severn Stars and Team Bath age group squads. She has been a feature of Welsh age group teams competing at Netball Europe tournaments for some time now as well, most recently winning silver with Wales at the 2019 instalment of the Under 21 competition.
Dunn’s excellent form at age group level saw her elevated to the 2020 Wales senior squad. She has already had a taste of taking on the best in the world, having played in training games against New Zealand and South Africa with the national side.
Having signed for Dragons, Dunn has her sights set on the next challenge. She said: “I have loved playing netball ever since I was in primary school! From playing with Team Bath Under 19 to Severn Stars Under 21, I have always been excited about the potential to progress in my netball career.
“Now I’ve signed with Dragons, I am excited to take on new challenges and I can’t wait to develop my netball skills whilst also developing great relationships within the team.”
Director of Netball, Tania Hoffman, is excited about what the talented young shooter can bring to the team. She said: “Morganne is one of Wales’ most exciting young prospects in the shooting circle. She has travelled a lot for her netball already in her career and will have learned a lot already from being around a few different set-ups.
“Morganne has a ton of talent and ability and now she is in a Superleague squad I expect her to make even more progress. Being a shooter in Superleague netball brings with it a lot of pressure, but I’m confident that Morganne will take this in her stride and go on to impress this season.”
