Preview: Strathclyde Sirens vs Team Bath
10th January 2019
Claire Maxwell, Strathclyde Sirens Captain, insists that a near-capacity crowd at the Emirates Arena could prove the edge in seeing off Team Bath.
The Strathclyde Sirens’ first home game of the season takes place tomorrow in the East End of Glasgow. Fans face a scramble for tickets for Friday night’s game, in a fixture which Strathclyde Sirens have come out on top in each of the last two seasons.
Maxwell said: “We’re excited to play in front of our home crowd. We cherish that because our fans are just fantastic. We’ve had two wins from two over Bath over the last two seasons at home. So that gives us confidence against a team that has been in the top four over the last two years.
“We’re nearly sold out and we’re so excited to see so many people back us this season. We have a new team, an exciting team, and we’ll bring something different that we haven’t brought over the last few seasons.
After an 18-goal thumping of Surrey Storm in the season opener last weekend, Maxwell is adamant there’s more to come. She reckons the curtain-raiser in Birmingham, which was live on Sky Sports, has fans back home clamouring to see their local side.
“Off the back of seeing us on Saturday the fans can see we’re playing a new brand of netball. We’re happy with the standard we set for ourselves in our first game. We were buzzing with that 18-goal win. We know we can get even better which is the exciting thing and we are looking forward to this season.”
