Amy Parmenter and Lauren Moore will continue to line-up in the same team, moving from GIANTS Netball to the Melbourne Mavericks in 2024.

Amy Parmenter will bring her both her versatility, but also her x-factor as one of the best wing defences in the game to her new side in 2024.

Looking to lock in herself into one of the midcourt positions at the Mavericks, Parmenter is one of the toughest players in the competition.

Her SSN career started in 2019 when she was elevated to the senior playing roster at the GIANTS after being a training partner with their ANL affiliate, the Canberra Giants for two years.

Her debut season at GIANTS Netball was exceptional, with the league awarding her the Rising Star award after taking the most intercepts of any midcourter.

She represented her state of New South Wales at both Under 17 and Under 19 level.

Her new head coach Tracey Neville spoke about Parmenter’s attributes that contributed to the Mavericks’ wish to sign her.

“This girl is hungry to take her game to the next level, which makes her one of the most exciting players I have coached,” Neville said.

“She is feared by a lot of attackers, and I love that she has fun winning the ball in a one-on-one contest. She has an unbelievable skill to compete and is a great leader on and off the court.

Once a Swift and a GIANT, now Lauren Moore embarks on a new venture at the Mavericks in 2024. Moore can play all three defensive positions with goalkeeper being preferred.

A natural athlete, Moore is a defender that looks to get more court-time at the Mavericks after sitting behind Swifts Sarah Klau and Maddy Turner, and GIANTS April Brandley and Tilly Mcdonell.

She was signed to the Swifts back in 2016 while still attending school at age 17. Representing Australia at a young age, Moore was a state and national level player at Under 17 level.

She got her first SSN contract as a training partner in 2017 and 2018 before being elevated in 2019. Moore was part of the premiership squads in 2019 and 2021 at the Swifts before joining the GIANTS.

Neville spoke about the ‘unassuming’ player that is Lauren Moore.

“Lauren is an unassuming player who has an athletic ability to win the ball in and outside the circle,” Neville explained.

“What drew me to Lauren is her ability to irritate her attacker and never let them settle. She also is a joyous character that will bring a lot of laughter to the group.”
