Celtic Dragons Bringing Back Sunshine Girl Rebekah Robinson For 2021

Jamaica international Rebekah Robinson has re-signed for Celtic Dragons for the 2021 Vitality Netball Superleague season.

Robinson made her Superleague debut last season having first  featured in the Dragons’ storming 2019 Fast5 All-Stars campaign.

The 25-year-old appeared in all three of the 2020 Superleague games before the league was cancelled.

Robinson made her Vitality Netball World Cup debut in Liverpool in 2019.

And she had been part of the Jamaican squad, known as the Sunshine Girls, that won bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Dragons Director of Netball, Tania Hoffman, 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!”
