Netball Jamaica has named a strong and experienced squad that will go for glory at the Netball World Cup in Liverpool, England from July 12-21, 2019.

 The team led by the experienced shooting pair of Romelda Aiken and Jhanielle Fowler-Reid was announced by Netball Jamaica on Monday.

Also included in the squad are Vangelee Williams, Jodi-Ann Ward, Stacian Facey, Shanice Beckford, Adean Thomas, Nicole Dixon, Khadijah Williams, Kadie-Ann Dehaney, Shamera Sterling, and Shimona Nelson.

Shadiann Hemmings, Shannika Johnson, and Rebekah Robinson have been named as reserves for the number-three ranked team in the world.

Marvette Anderson has been named head coach with Winston Nevers as her assistant coach.

Jamaica finished fourth at each of the last two World Cups in Singapore in 2011 and in Sydney, Australia in 2015.

However, their recent form has been notable. 

They won the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games on the Australian Gold Coast in 2018. They also finished second in the 2017 Fastnet World Series in Australia losing to England in the final.
