Sunderland Netball 2nds in action against Leeds Art 1sts earlier this season

Goal shooter Roseanne Bradley discusses how she found her love for netball and how she progressed to the University of Sunderland 2nd team.

The 20-year-old has captained the side this season and has scored some of the crucial goals that has kept them fighting in the league.

“It’s been fab to captain such a great group of girls this year,” said Bradley.

“I’m really proud of our achievements, even if we did miss out on second place by only a matter of goals.”

The fashion journalism student started playing netball at primary school and carried on through her school years.

“I started playing in primary school, and I’ve played goal shooter ever since,” said Bradley.

“I’ve always been quite tall and when I joined a proper team they pushed me to use my height as an advantage.”

The netball teams are a very close-knit group of individuals and Bradley is proud to be part of the team.

“There’s always something to work on to ensure you work better as a team. Particularly at university as all the girls are so close,” she said.

The University of Sunderland netball 2nds have showed great fight this season and were able to finish in 2nd place in the BUCS Northern 8B league.
