History

The Collingwood Magpies Netball Team is a Melbourne based netball team who competes in Australia's national competition, the Suncorp Super Netball League.

The Magpies launched in 2016 having secured a licence in the newly established league. The team took to the court for its debut season in 2017 under the leadership of its inaugural captain, Madi Browne alongside head coach Kristy Keppich-Birrell.

The team finished fourth on the ladder in its first season and lost their elimination final to the Giants by one goal.

The following season saw the Magpies struggle for wins and consistency. It also marked former Australian Diamonds defender, Sharni Layton's last game in the sport having announcement her retirement at the end of the season.

In 2019, the Magpies returned to the court with a revamped team under its new head coach Rob Wright and were bolstered with the experience of several new additions in Kelsey Browne, Geva Mentor and Nat Medhurst. The team finished fourth on ladder having lost the elimination final to the Melbourne Vixens.

Later that same year, the Magpies went on to win the pre-season Super Club Tournament in New Zealand.

Despite the delay of the 2020 Super Netball season due to COVID-19, fans are eager to finally see the Browne sisters step on court together and can also get excited to see some more Magpie debuts.
