APIA, Samoa-May 17: 3:25pm(Samoa Observer): Netball Samoa has finalised their U21 team to represent Samoa at the Netball World Youth Cup Gaborone 2017 in July.

Up to 40 trialists had the opportunity to compete for a position in the team over a series of training camps held in Samoa, Auckland and Gold Coast.

The team features twelve fresh new faces, uncapped players.

Netball Samoa Coach Lee Edwards says she is excited with the progress of the team over the last 12 months.
