England captain Ama Agbeze headlines London Pulse's squad for the 2019 Vitality Netball Superleague season.
Pulse are the first central London-based franchise to feature in the Netball Superleague and they'll be managed by former England international Natalie Seaton in their debut campaign.
They replace Team Northumbria who will no longer be part of the 10-team competition, and their home games will be played at the Copper Box Arena.
However, the capture of England captain Agbeze is a huge coup for the London-based side, who revealed their squad in full on Wednesday.
Jamaican international Shantal Slater- formerly of Team Bath and Sirens, is another big-name addition for Pulse, along with Malawi's Loreen Ngwira and England youngster Chiara Semple - both of whom featured for Northumbria last term.

They will be joined by Manchester Thunder duo Bea Skingsley and Taylor Cullen, former Surrey Storm and Mavericks shooter Ashleigh Neal, and ex-England international Chioma Matthews.
Brie Grierson has also made the switch from Loughborough Lightning, while Fionnuala Toner, Honor De Winton and Frankie Wells are also set to add dynamism to the Pulse's squad, along with Olivia Tchine - who has climbed through the youth ranks.
London Pulse kick off the 2019 season on January 5 against Severn Stars, who are embarking on their third Superleague campaign.
