Aiken, Beckford-Chambers and Mentor Return to Aus for ANZ Champs

England defender Eboni Beckford-Chambers has no reservations in signing with the Adelaide Thunderbirds after a chat with coach Jane Woodlands-Thompson.

Arriving in Adelaide on Tuesday after completing a Jamaican tour with the English team, Beckford-Chambers said it was far from a difficult decision to wear the pink dress after three seasons with the West Coast Fever.“Jane spoke so positively about the Thunderbirds environment, the program and the players,’’ an enthusiastic Beckford-Chambers said. “There is a history of success in this franchise.

“I had three wonderful years at the Fever but we never made the finals. That is a drawcard and I wanted a new challenge and new experience.

“I am so excited at this opportunity. I’m really looking forward to Jane helping my game and making me a better defender. She is known for her success and tells it like it is. You need that, you need honesty and to know where you are at.’’

Beckford-Chambers will provide the Thunderbirds with much-needed physicality and can play either role in the defensive circle.
