West Coast Fever are pleased to be the first ANZ Championship team to have finalised their squad for the upcoming 2013 season.
The signing of former Perth Orioles shooter Lisa Millman (nee Wilkinson) completes Plummer’s squad of 12 and rewards the 31 year old local for years of tenacious athleticism.
Whilst Millman was bought in as a replacement player and benched for the injured Sarah East in the 2012 season, this is her first contract to play in the ANZ Championships.
“Excellent!” said Lisa today when asked how she was feeling about the news. “It’s an amazing surprise, especially following the opportunity to line up last year and train with the squad - I couldn’t be more excited.”
Millman had a short break from netball following her Orioles career to recover from an ACL reconstruction, but has since been a regular feature in the Smarter than Smoking State Netball League with the West Coast Falcons (Premiers 2012), and the WA Australian Netball League Squad - Western Sting.
She currently works as a Service Co-ordinator for a local car dealership whilst also being the Regional Development Officer for the West Coast Netball Region, and is an integral member of the Wanneroo Netball Association community.
Speaking of the signing, Plummer is pleased to add another experienced player to the roster,
“Lisa brings another level of maturity to the team, and is very adaptable at goal shooter, goal attack and wing attack.
“She has had a great ANL campaign, and following what we saw of her when she joined us for a few weeks last season; I am looking forward to working with her and the team on a full time basis.”
West Coast Fever 2013 memberships are on sale now, and with the whole squad now named and one of the seven home games to be held at the brand new Perth Arena; there is plenty to be excited about. More information and purchasing details can be found at - www.westcoastfever.com.au.
