Northern Ireland captain Caroline O’Hanlon is returning to the Vitality Netball Superleague champions Manchester Thunder for a third season.

The 35-year-old centre is Thunder’s latest signing for the 2020 campaign, taking the number of names announced to seven.

O’Hanlon captained the Northern Ireland side who finished 10th at the Netball World Cup in Liverpool in July as well as taking her Gaelic Football team, Armagh, to the quarter-finals of the All Ireland Championships.

Speaking about committing to Thunder for 2020, O’Hanlon said: “I’m delighted to sign on with my third season at Thunder after such a great year last year.

“We have the best fans in the league and it’s an absolute privilege every time I get to represent this franchise. I can’t wait to get back on court and defend our title.”

Head coach Karen Greig is over the moon to have her “lynchpin” O’Hanlon back for another season.
