After missing out on the 2018 Commonwealth Games team, slick midcourter Gina Crampton made a triumphant return in 2019 when the Silver Ferns went on to win the Netball World Cup in Liverpool.
To highlight her determined, motivated and tenacious spirit, Crampton came full circle when she was anointed the Silver Ferns 28th captain in 2021 and led the Silver Ferns to a bronze medal in Birmingham at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
First coming to prominence in 2015, Crampton’s vast experience has made her a cornerstone of the Silver Ferns attack line. She will line up for her second World Cup in South Africa in 2023.
Predominantly a wing attack but also an effective centre, the livewire midcourter showcases her skillsets through her speed, drive off the line and adept feeding ability while executing her well-performed attacking duties.
Making her international debut in 2016, Crampton has continued to build on her all-round abilities. Fit and fast on attack, Crampton is also an effective spoiler on defence. A fine all-round athlete, maturity and experience has added to Crampton’s consistency, ability to find the gap and precision feeding which have been standout features at domestic level.
