SUPERLEAGUE 2013 starts at Team Bath v Celtic Dragons

team bath logoAsha Francis will again skipper Team Bath as the 2013 Netball Superleague season starts tonight with a top opening fixture against Cardiff-based Celtic Dragons at the University of Bath Sports Training Village (2000).

Singapore international Francis and Bath head into Superleague 2013 on a high after winning the pre-season FastNet Grand Prix tournament last month.

The Superleague Team Bath netball captain said: "It's been a long build-up to the season and we're really excited about getting going."

This term marks Serena Guthrie's first season as vice-captain and her appointment comes after she played a starring role in midcourt in helping England secure a historic 3-0 Test series win over netball world champions Australia last month.

Team Bath head coach Jess Thirlby said: "Asha and Serena will make a great partnership, but we're lucky enough to have a team of leaders on court.

"We've been training hard and now we're raring to go."

Tonight's Superleague opener is set to be aired live on Sky Sports 4.

Celtic Dragons first home Superleague 2013 match is against Team Northumbria at Sport Wales, Sophia Gardens (1700) on Saturday February 16, when Bath visit Manchester Thunder.
