Building on her repertoire, rising young midcourter Maddy Gordon took her game to new levels in 2023 to clinch her spot in the Silver Ferns team for the World Cup in South Africa.
Making the move to Wellington from Auckland in her first year out of school in 2018, the livewire Gordon quickly found her niche in the Capital where she has gone on to forge an impressive career. A super quick and skilful midcourter with a non-stop engine, Gordon’s all-round credentials enable her to slip comfortably between all three central court positions.
Spending a full season at centre along with a growing maturity and improved game structure to compliment her court craft, the midcourt dynamo produced a compelling 2023 domestic season. Accurate and consistent with her ball skills, movement and feeding on attack, Gordon is equally reliable on defence through her relentless disruptive hunting and speed.
Elevated to the Silver Ferns squad in 2020-21, Gordon has had a fleeting career at international level, missing selection in the 2022 Silver Ferns Commonwealth Games and 2023 Quad Series teams but in lifting her standards to new heights warranted a recall for Netball World Cup 2023.
