Robb ready for increased role as Pride turn to youth

Hannah Robb has already earned a reputation as one of the WBBL’s most promising young players. The Caledonia Pride star returns to the Edinburgh based franchise for her third season, having spent the summer competing for Great Britain U20’s.

“It was loads of fun being part of the GB U20 team this summer,” Robb enthused.

“It was a tough tournament for us but we played some great teams in competitive games.

“It was a great opportunity for me to learn from different coaches and players and it allowed me to grow more as a leader, which is something I’m hoping I can transfer to my role with Pride this year.

Having earned a place in the post-season for the first time in franchise history last campaign, Pride will hope its younger players will be able to replicate last season’s success after losing several senior members of the squad during the offseason.

“I’ve learned a lot from my team mates over the last two years being part of Pride.

“Now I have a big opportunity to use what I’ve learned from them and take on a bigger role within the team.

“Having had the experience with GB this summer has also helped me become more confident and comfortable being vocal.

“I’m excited to have this opportunity and I think it’ll really help me learn and develop even more.

“Seeing all the player signing across the WBBL has only added to that excitement to get back out on the floor.

“I think the league is stronger than ever.

“Being able to play against such competitive teams and experienced players each week will help us learn and improve.

“This year will be a huge challenge but it’s a great opportunity for us and with the talent and youth we have coming through the programme it’s exciting to see where we can end up!”
