Having played all her netball, both junior and senior, with the Bloods, Arundell will be hoping her side can bring home a win against Portland to add to the day’s celebrations.

“To play my 150th on our home court alongside friends who have been with me for years really will be pretty special,” she said.

“My family has been involved with the club for years and we just love the atmosphere here.

“My parents are both avid Bloods supporters; dad held the position of president a few years back and mum has also helped out in quite a few roles.

“Both my brothers, Jo and Tom, play footy here and my sister Amy (Moloney) has also played quite a lot of netball with the club so it’s a real family affair for us, which we love.”

The talented 26 year-old first donned the red and blue as an eager 12 year-old and hasn’t looked back since.

“I think I was 12 or 13 when I first started playing and I’ve loved it ever since,” she said.

“I play mainly at goal attack. This year, under coach Kym Grundy, we’ve had a few new faces in our Open side and while we obviously all want to play finals, our aim is to get as many wins on the board as we can.

“We just want to enjoy our netball and not take it too seriously.”

Round 12 of the Hampden League season will see Terang Mortlake take on Portland at Ridley Recreation Reserve, Terang, this Saturday.
