Natalie is Netball Superleague player of the year!
Natalie, who also plays for the Yorkshire Jets team and for England, was up against four other competitors and was awarded the top prize at the superleague grand final at London’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday 25 April.
Throughout the season, Natalie has gone from strength to strength in both her University and professional team. The Jets have also recently been selected for the England squad to face Trinidad & Tobago in May.
Natalie said: “When people say ‘Natalie Haythornthwaite, player of the year’ it puts a big smile on my face. There were 6,000 people there and when they said my name it was one of them moments where you’ve got to pinch yourself. I was just trying to take it all in. I’m just really lucky and honoured to have been given the award but it’s a team effort really because I’d never have been able to have got into this position without all the team.”
