Jets look to steady ship with second win in a row

Jersey Jets will take on Norwich Thoroughbreds on Sunday.

The Jets will be looking to make their place in Premier 2 a little more secure after only just moving out of the relegation zone last week with a win at Romans.

However they can no longer count on the help of England International Serena Guthrie as she's returned to her club duties in New Zealand.

Thoroughbreds are currently bottom of the table in Premier 2.

England netballer, Jo Harten, has hailed her teammate, Serena Guthrie, as "one of the best players in the world" after her excellent debut season in New Zealand.

The Jersey star won 'rookie of the year' for her performances for the Northern Mystics in the ANZ Championship.

Harten is not surprised by Guthrie's impact.

Serena should have been playing in the ANZ Championship for the last few seasons and I've been telling people that she's one of the best players in the world and she's proved her worth this year and I'm really pleased for her.

– Jo Harten, England netballer

The pair have been in the island for a coaching clinic with young players ahead of preparations for the Netball World Cup, which starts in Sydney next month.

Guthrie targets Malawi return

Serena Guthrie

Jersey netballer Serena Guthrie hopes to be fit for England’s test series with Malawi in December after an MRI scan revealed she has a hairline fracture on her wrist.

Guthrie was injured in the Fast Five series in New Zealand in defeat to Jamaica earlier this month and there were initial fears she may have broken the bone.

The mid-court player, who won her 50th test cap in victory against New Zealand on Rotorua, is now unlikely be out for any more than six weeks.

That means Guthrie could feature in the three tests against the African nation, which begins at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on December 14th.

At the moment my wrist is moving alright and I’m hoping to be competing.

I’ve not been told by the doctors that I’m not going to be fit, so there’s no reason why I shouldn't.

I don’t want to miss any games and I’m also trying to get to the ANZ League injury free.

Guthrie reaches 50 caps in style

Serena Guthrie celebrated her 50th English cap with a 42-38 win over New Zealand in Rotorua this morning – their first victory since the Commonwealth Games.

England had lost to the Silver Ferns by just one goal in Glasgow, but went some way to avenging that defeat with a good all-round performance.

Anna Mayes’ side missed out on a medal in August after defeat to Jamaica and then lost two tests to Australia earlier this month.

But some sharp shooting from the likes of Jo Harten, Rachel Dunn and Kadeen Corbin saw them home.

England face New Zealand again in the second test on Friday.
