    Emma Dovey has always been outstanding at GD whilst at Thunder. Her partnership with Kerry Almond has consistently been impressive over the decade or so that they’ve both been at Thunder. However, to my mind she’s one of those who never showed the same flair internationally.

    Kathryn Turner has also been a longstanding GA for Thunder, playing alongside Janielle Lawson, Krista Enziano  (whatever happened to her?) and Helen Housby to name a few but as Broadbean says she has not wished to commit to international netball: sadly our great loss…..

    God yes she was so underrated! Those were the Mike Greenwood days of “Northern Thunder” weren’t they? She was a fab GA, I loved watching her and Karen Greig….with Rachel Henry at WA: remember her? I actually really rated her as a specialist WA. Thunder have had some amazing players over the years….

    Enziano?? I think your mistaken. She was a stand still shooter. She wore glasses. Blond.

    Yes Oldham club pedigree and Northern Thunder but pretty confident never a GA to KG or a WA. If anything KG was prob a GA to to her at the end of her career!?!

    Yes Ash is saying that Kathryn Turner has played at GA with Lawson and Enziano at GS.

    As Broadbean says I actually described Enziano as playing alongside Kathryn Turner at GA (obviously as GS) ….also the WA reference was to Rachel Henry….The other point was that when Charlie Beenham played GA at Thunder Karen Greig was GS.

    Yes I liked Charlie Beenham. Had a different shooting style that is similar to Sophie Hankin at Mavs!

    I remember when Thunder had a Trinidad and Tobago import – Anastasia Wilson.

    Yes I remember her! She was quite skillful.

    Can you remember Lynsey Armitage?! The GS they had to bring in (I think it was for a grand final match?), due to Greig’s knee injury. She was dragged out of retirement and was quite large and unfit and I think she then played for Northumbria after that?  I think she’s from up North (maybe Sunderland. …) They got beaten of course by the up and coming Surrey Storm!

    Yes I do!

    They really didn’t have a lot of options did they?! She’s quite tall but obviously not playing at Superleague level for some time showed!

    Lynsey Armitage is a London Girl – plays for New Campbell in Prem and has done for as long as I can remember.  She might have played Mavs in the early days? perhaps not.

    She was in the Eng set up around the same time as KGreig – hence the buddy to call on when Thunder were in a pickle.
