England’s Helen Housby signs new NSW Swifts deal until 2021

England goal machine Helen Housby has signed a new three-year deal to remain at the New South Wales Swifts in the Australian Super Netball league until 2021.

The 23-year-old has become one of the most feared and respected attackers in the world since making the move to Australia from Manchester Thunder in 2017.

A last-second penalty shot, netted by Housby, ensured England made history to become Commonwealth Games champions on the Gold Coast earlier this year and she backed up her international performances with another stellar Super Netball campaign.

Head Coach Briony Akle said she was delighted to have secured Housby’s signature: “It’s been a pleasure to see how Helen has kicked on from the massive success with England at the Commonwealth Games and stamped her authority on the league again.”
