The St Vincent and the Grenadines Netball Association has released the names of the 12 players who will be journeying to Jamaica in October 2022 to compete in the Americas Netball World Cup Qualifiers October 16 – 23, 2022.

The twelve players are: Kimesha Antoine, Joseann Antoine, Kaywanna Charles, Shanice Daniel, Shellisa Davis, Nerissa Delpesche, Mary-Ann Frederick, Niya Miller, Shania Pompey, Jo Maria Quashie, Dilonie Sam, and Ruthann Williams.

The management team is Natasha Baptiste – Head of Delegation, Joan Foster-Baynes – Manager, Godfrey Harry – Head Coach, Vasha Adams – Assistant Coach, and Javed Marksman – Physio.

The team is scheduled to depart St Vincent and the Grenadines October 12 and return October 26.

“We selected the best possible 12 that was available. Presently we are doing finishing work, quality work, which would then show that the team is gelled and ready, fit and ready for Jamaica. We are just about three weeks to go, so we are just trying to put the finishing touches to the team,” head coach Godfrey Harry told SEARCHLIGHT.

When asked about the team’s prospects, Harry said the team has as good a chance as any other.

“The world is full of uncertainties and there is nothing promised to us. So we have as good a chance as any other team in a competition so all we have to do is to go out and deliver.”

The road to Netball World Cup 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa continues with daily training sessions and practice games for the St Vincent and the Grenadines national netball team.

The first step to be taken on the path to the 2023 Netball World Cup in South Africa would be decided at the Americas Netball World Cup Qualifiers during the period October 16 – 23 October 2022 in Jamaica.
