"I am thrilled to be returning to Wasps for my fifth season. Being part of the Wasps family for the last 5 years has been so enjoyable and I am really excited at the prospect of this upcoming season. I believe we have a team who have the potential and are determined to win back the Superleague trophy. As a player, I am looking forward to returning to the court after the birth of my first child, and thank the Club for all the support they have provided me so far. I feel I have got a lot more to give and it is a massive honour to have been named captain.”

“Not only are we delighted to have Sophia back with us, we are ecstatic for her to lead the team as captain this year. Her vision, dedication and caring nature always made her a first choice this season. Sophia is a natural leader, a player’s voice and always has the best interests of the squad at heart. Sophia is looking fantastic in training. Sadly her return to play after baby Otis was hindered last year due to the short season. However, watch this space - she is back!”   

- Mel Mansfield, Wasps Netball Head Coach
