Following on from her stunning season with the Queensland Firebirds, shooter Donnell Wallam has re-committed to the club for another season.

Her recent season saw her produce 719 points, which saw her become the league’s second highest scorer behind West Coast Fever’s superstar Jhaniele Fowler.

Wallam was also a part of Australia’s national team during this year’s World Cup in South Africa, after being named as a reserve in the Diamonds squad for the tournament.

“I’m really excited to sign again for another year with the Firebirds and it’s really exciting having some new talent come through,” she said.

“We’ve got Tippah back as well and I’m looking forward to working with her.

“I feel like towards the end of the season we were building quite nicely so I’m keen for us to extend on that build and go a few games further.”

The 29-year-old provided a multitude of special moments on the netball court, including a stunning no-look goal against the NSW Swifts in Round Three.

Firebirds Head Coach, Bec Bulley, spoke highly of returning netballer that will have a third campaign with the club.

“Donnell is a winner, a proven big-moment player and an inspiration not just for our team and our fans but the entire netball community,” Bulley said.

“Whether it’s providing highlight reel finishes, clutch shots or using her combination of strength and skill, Donnell gives us a world-class shooting option that our Purple Family appreciates and opponents fear.

“I cannot wait to see what memories Donnell will create for us in 2024.”
