Wales’ Rebecca Baker will make her Vitality Netball Superleague debut with Celtic Dragons in 2021.

The 23-year-old has recently broken into the national senior squad having played for the U21s at the Netball World Youth Cup in Botswana in 2017.

Now Baker, who plays her club netball for Team Bath Toucans and local side Risca Netball Club, is relishing making the step-up with the Dragons.

“I love the work ethic and culture that the Dragons have created, and I want to learn and build from other players. I have watched many amazing athletes in this team grow and inspire others and I want to do the same.

“I want to be the best athlete I can be and show that anything is possible.”

Tania Hoffman, Celtic Dragons’ Director of Netball, is confident Baker will flourish at a higher level when the Superleague season gets underway.
