Amy Carter has been named as the final member of Manchester Thunder's core squad for the 2020 Vitality Netball Superleague season.
The 21-year old mid-courter, who is part of the England Futures programme, returns to the Black and Yellows for a third season.
The defending league champions have retained the majority of their title-winning squad for the 2020 season and will once again be led by Emma Dovey, who has been their captain for the past three seasons.
Rebekah Airey will join her captain in the defensive end alongside one of their new signings, Malawi international Lauren Ngwira.
Ngwira arrives from London Pulse as does the versatile Ashleigh Neal who has the ability to cover across three different positions at WA, C and GA.
Thunder's director of netball Karen Greig is delighted to have confirmed the 10 members of her core squad and is anticipating another excellent season from them.
"The calibre of player and the potential this squad has is exciting - we have a number who can offer multiple positions giving us a range of combinations that we can put out on court," the director of netball said.
"This stands us in good stead to compete with the best once again. We will be announcing our training partners over the coming weeks and this will be a talented group of young players that will be ready to slot into the match day ten at any time."
