Celtic Dragons is proud to announce that Jamaica’s Rebekah Robinson will be returning to Wales for the upcoming Superleague season after re-signing for the franchise.
Robinson made her Superleague debut for Celtic Dragons last year and first featured in Dragons’ storming 2019 Fast5 All-Stars campaign. She then went on to feature in Dragons’ three 2020 Superleague fixtures prior to the cancellation of the league.
Robinson, a Jamaican international, made her Vitality Netball World Cup debut in 2019 and was part of the Jamaican squad that won bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.
Director of Netball, Tania Hoffman, was thrilled to have Robinson back for 2021. She said: “It was deeply disappointing for Rebekah that the 2020 season was curtailed. She had worked so hard in advance of the season and was starting to make a real impact on our performances and on our squad.
“However, now she has recommitted for 2021, there is a fantastic opportunity for Rebekah to pick up where she left off. Her leadership on and off the court will be really valuable for us, particularly for some of our younger players. It is worth remembering that Rebekah is still only 25, yet she is such a strong presence within our set-up.
“I know that Rebekah is excited to come back to Wales and we can’t wait to have her back in training with us!”
