With her star continuing to rise, dynamic young midcourter Maddy Gordon will be back for a third season in Pulse colours in 2021. Making the bold decision to move to Wellington from Auckland in her first year out of school paid dividends for the livewire midcourter, who quickly found her niche in the Central Manawa Beko team in 2018. Gordon, who slips comfortably between centre and wing defence added wing attack to her repertoire in 2019 while coming along in leaps and bounds after getting her first taste of elite level netball. That rose to new heights when the super quick and skilful midcourter with the non-stop engine sealed a heady 2020 with an MVP performance in the Grand Final and selection in the Silver Ferns squad.
