Melbourne Vixens midcourter, Liz Watson has re-signed with the club in 2022, committing to her ninth season with the Vixens.
Watson had surgery on her Navicular bone in March and spent the 2021 season on the sidelines, however remained an integral part of the Vixens squad in a leadership capacity and on the bench as assistant coach towards the end of the season.
Watson made her debut for the Vixens in 2014 and has since won two championships (2014 and 2020) and been awarded the Vixens’ most valuable player, the Sharelle McMahon Medal twice.
Watson joins Kate Moloney as the first two players signings of the 2022 season.
“Having had the year off, I’m more excited than ever to get back out on court with the team and show our supporters what they know we can do,” said Watson.
“Watching on from the sidelines this year has given me more of an appreciation of the wider club and the roles we all play, and I’m looking forward to taking what I’ve learned in my time off the court and helping rebuild.
“This year was not how we wanted to come off the back of a championship, but I know that what we’re building for 2022 is really exciting and there’s no doubt we have the championship in our sights.”
The Vixens’ third signing will be revealed tomorrow.
