Former Herts Mavericks head coach Karen Atkinson has taken up the same role with Loughborough Lightning.

Atkinson, an ex-England netball player who also turned out for Mavericks, returns to the club where she began her Superleague career.

She said: “I am extremely grateful to have spent the last eight years playing and coaching at Hertfordshire Mavericks, the opportunities it has given me and the fantastic people I have been able to work with.

“However, it feels fitting to come back to Loughborough where I started my Superleague career and I am excited about the new challenges it will bring.”
