“Dream come true” as Team Bath’s Kadeen Corbin is named in Barbados squad for 2023 Netball World Cup
She is joined in the squad by sister Sasha, a former Team Bath player who will be making her final competitive appearance before retiring from the game.
The Corbin sisters have both previously represented England at the Commonwealth Games, with Kadeen helping the Roses secure their historic gold medal on Australia’s Gold Coast in 2018.
Both @Sasha_Corbin & I are so humbled, our hearts are full, it’s a dream come true, never thought we’d get to play on the international stage again. What an absolute honour and exciting opportunity to be named to represent Barbados at NWC in South Africa 🇧🇧💎 pic.twitter.com/nfz9e56qnD
