Maddie Hinchliffe is an exciting inclusion to the Lightning squad in 2021, having previously spent time as a Training Partner at Queensland Firebirds. Head Coach Kylee Byrne said the midcourter is a hard worker with strong netball smarts and has plenty of potential to develop in the Lightning program.
The 22-year-old is proficient across both Wing Defence and Centre, adding depth to Lightning’s midcourt options, after being elevated to the squad of 10 as a permanent injury replacement player for Ashlee Unie.
