Severn Stars will look to bounce back from last weekend's defeat when they take on Surrey Storm on Saturday (16 February).

The Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) side will be playing their second home game at the new university Sports Arena (6pm centre pass), with another sell-out crowd expected.

Stars' were left frustrated when they lost to Manchester Thunder at the University of Worcester Arena last Saturday (9 February) by 49-62. Head Coach Sam Bird has been working on a number of strategies during training this week to put in a successful performance in front of a home crowd.

Severn Stars Head Coach, Sam Bird, said:

“We will be looking to expand the periods of very good play we put out against Manchester Thunder on Saturday. We have been working on our strategies to give ourselves the best chance to perform strongly against Storm and we are looking forward to the match. The last game at Gloucester was great in terms of the crowd being very close to the courtside and creating a great atmosphere for us to play in. We hope to use the home support to our advantage this week. Both teams have South African import players so will be familiar with the style of play and each other's preferred way to play."

The Severn Stars are a joint franchise between the University of Gloucestershire and the University of Worcester.

Tickets for the game are available for purchase.
