Mia Ritchie has become the third player to recommit to Team Bath Netball for its 2020 Vitality Netball Superleague season.
The mid-court participant has signed for her 11th consecutive season in Gold & Blue and first wore the colours of the franchise whilst studying at the University of Bath.
“It had been my dream to perform Superleague netball once I first came to the University of Bath and that I likely would not have believed it if you mentioned I’d still be in the squad 11 decades later,” said Ritchie on the franchise’s official website.
“The Team Bath dress has such a heritage and history. You never require wearing it for granted and I’m delighted to have the chance.
“It is the only team I’ve played in the Superleague and I pride myself on being a one-club woman”
Team Bath missed out on the Grand Final last season but proceeded to prevail over Loughborough Lightning on the season’s Last day to take third.
They move into the part of the Vitality Roses head coach and approach the coming season without the presence of Jess Thirlby after her death. Anna Stembridge is eager by Ritchie’s re-signing and is going to probably soon be in charge of their Superleague outfit.
“Mia is a pocket rocket onto the courtroom and a fantastic individual who leads by example. She provides everything week in practice to ensure that not only is she’s actually in the best form but that her team-mates are ready too.”
The 2020 Vitality Netball Superleague season is going to be shown live with the fixtures being announced on September.
The Season Opener will happen on February and with all franchises taking on the side which ended closest to them at the conclusion of last season, Team Bath will confront Loughborough Lightning at the Arena Birmingham.
Together with Ritchie, the seasoned defender Eboni Usoro-Brown along with Rachel Shaw have both recommitted to Stembridge’s side and as yet, no player signings are declared.
