Aliyah pronounced 'A - LEAH'
Dunn, who stands a shade under 1.9m, can play both goal attack and goal shoot, giving the Pulse plenty of options and variety on attack.
A member of the South Beko Netball League team this year and acting as injury cover for the Southern Steel, Dunn is a product of Verdon College, in Invercargill, which has proved a bountiful netball nursery over the years.
'I am excited about my move to Wellington,’’ the teenager said. `I am a little nervous but this is a great opportunity to spread my wings and challenge myself in a new environment.
`I am looking forward to becoming part of the Pulse team and learning all I can from their experienced players and coaching staff.’’
Dunn, who is also hoping to do some study in Wellington, will reunite with fellow NZU21 players Metuarau and Mila Reuelu-Buchanan, the trio this time lining up together in Pulse colours.
McCausland-Durie has hailed the addition of the shooting pair which will add height, movement and variety to the attacking end.
`Aliyah has been a member of New Zealand Secondary School teams and was recently part of the winning NZU21 team,’’ she said. `She has great potential, is a tall shooter with real presence and for her age, wonderful calmness in the heat of the moment.
