By September 18, 2019

The Melbourne Vixens have signed Jamaica’s Kadie-Ann Dehaney to a new deal that will see the player return to Melbourne for the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season.

The 23-year-old Dehaney will now play a fourth season in Melbourne since joining the club in 2017.

“Kadie-Ann has been a great asset to us on and off the court since she joined us three years ago,” said Vixens head coach Simone McKinnis.

“She soaks up all the knowledge she has been given by coaching staff and players and is so determined to improve each season, every week.

“Kadie-Ann adds a level of dynamic presence on the court, allowing flexibility and options for us to develop the defensive unit in 2020 and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can bring next season.”

Dehaney made her international netball debut in the 2015 Netball World Cup against Samoa.

She participated at the 2013 Netball World Youth Cup in Glasgow, Scotland where Jamaica finished in third place.

She also captained the under-21 Sunshine Girls at the 2017 Netball World Youth Cup in Gaborone, Botswana whereby the team finished in fifth place.

In 2015, she earned the MVP award in the Berger Elite League final where her team the Clarendon Gators defeated the St James Sharpes.

  • Fit-again Bailey eyes return to Leverkusen squad Fit-again Bailey eyes return to Leverkusen squad

    Jamaica international Leon Bailey is primed to return to action for Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen having fully recovered from a hamstring injury suffered last month.

    The 22-year-old, who is looking to rediscover his best form at the Bundesliga club, could be on the bench for the team’s match away to Eintracht Frankfurt.  Prior to the injury, the winger made four appearances for the team, scoring once.

    Bailey has had a torrid time of late with injuries.  In April the player experienced another setback, on that occasion straining a thigh muscle.  Having worked hard at rehabilitation, the player insists he is ready to go again and could be in line for a start.

    "I am back now, and I feel very good.  But of course, after an injury, it's important not to rush anything. Maybe I come off the bench,” Bailey said.

    "I think I'll be in the squad, but I do not know if I'll start."

    In addition to Bailey, other players making a comeback are Lars Bender and Jonathan Tah.

  • Jamaica centre Samuels to sign with Greek club Panionios BC Jamaica centre Samuels to sign with Greek club Panionios BC

    Jamaica centre Samardo Samuels is expected to join Athens-based club Panionios BC ahead of the new Greek Basketball League (GBL) season.

    The much-traveled 30-year-old former NBA player was recently back in the United States where he took part in the Big 3 league.  Samuels represented the Trilogy. 

    Prior to the move, the controversial player had found himself without a club, after being suspended by French basketball outfit Limogues following an argument with the coach.

    A string of short stints has followed the player since 2017 when he signed with Spanish club Real Betis Energia Plus.  The big man parted ways with the club after a coaching dispute. 

    Samuels signed with the Serbian club Partizan for the rest of the 2017–18 season.  He was suspended by the club on November 15, for the violation of its discipline code, just a day after Partizan lost in a EuroCup game against Alba Berlin.  The player reportedly criticized head coach Miroslav Nikolić and made inappropriate remarks to a female journalist.
