Loughborough Lightning have signed two-time Superleague winner goal-keeper Sam May from neighborhood competitions Wasps.
May plied her trade for the last 3 years at Wasps and competed in 3 successive Grand Finals.
The Australian tall protector occurred to the courtroom for its Hertfordshire Mavericks prior to shifting to their inaugural season in 2017 to Wasps. She subsequently proceeded to win back titles with all the black and gold.
The 32-year-old is eager for the struggle ahead after making the move to Lightning.
“It’s very exciting, it is a brand new chapter for me. I have had the privilege to play for Wasps and Mavericks in the past and I think this is a fantastic opportunity to find out what I can bring into the side,” she said.
“Loughborough are following the title and I’m hoping I can bring about that aim, but also off-court I do a great deal of training and am hoping that my expertise and experience as a participant and trainer can also help with the pathway set up here in Lightning.”
Wasps have pipped Lightning to the post in two Grand Finals, but regardless of the history between the sides, May is hopeful she will be accepted by the fans.
“Hopefully the fans are nice to me! That is a journey and I am a player that hopefully, regardless of who they follow folks like to watch play. I am expecting I bring something new to both sides and can present my creativity out on courtroom,” she explained.
