The ANC Collingwood Magpies will be made up of 2022 Collingwood Magpies training partners along with additional Victorian-based athletes.

2022 training partners Zoe Davies, Casey Adamson, Sienna Allen and Montana Holmes will join newly elevated Magpie, Nyah Allen and former Magpie, Maggie Lind in the squad, amongst a number of ANC debutants from across Victoria.

ANC Collingwood Magpies’ coach, Marg Lind, is impressed by the talent secured for the inaugural ANC event.

"The Magpies ANC squad is a high energy, diverse group of athletes," Lind explained. "There is a good blend of youth and experience, and some strong connections already formed."

“This should provide a great foundation for a competitive Magpies team in the Australian Netball Championships."

Victorian Men's and Mixed Netball Association (VMMNA) head coach Guy Keane will provide a valuable addition to the group, stepping in as assistant coach.

“He brings a wealth of strategic and competitive knowledge through his playing and coaching experience in Men's netball and through his coaching experience in the Victorian Netball League with Hawks,” Lind said.
