Mystics announce first four players for 2018 ANZ Premiership

The SKYCITY Mystics have announced their first four signings for next year’s ANZ Premiership including newcomer Jamie Hume.

Silver Ferns shooter Bailey Mes will return to the team next year alongside one of the ANZ Premiership’s most exciting mid-courters - Elisapeta Toeava.

Hume will make the move from the Ascot Park Hotel Southern Steel to join the Mystics while Tera-Maria Armani has signed on for a second season with the side, having made her debut this year.

Mystics chief executive Julie Paterson said they were pleased to be building their squad including the introduction of some new players alongside core players from this year’s campaign.

“It is exciting to announce that first wave of player signings for the SKYCITY Mystics and we look forward to adding a mixture of experience and fresh faces to the side,” she said.

“We’re lucky to welcome back Bailey and Elisapeta who made up such a strong component of our attacking end, along with youngster Tera-Maria who is also back to the Mystics as well as goal attack Jamie who brings something new to the squad.”

The ANZ Premiership is New Zealand’s elite netball league and enjoyed a successful inaugural season this year.
