Up-and-coming goaler Sam Gooden will return to Collingwood in 2018, after re-signing with the club as a training partner.
The 20-year-old made a huge impression in 2017, after she filled in for the injured Cody Lange and shone next to star shooter Caitlin Thwaites in the Super Suncorp Netball (SSN).
Her efforts were recognised by winning the coaches award for her Australian Netball League (ANL) season with the Tasmanian Magpies, as well as being named in the 21/U Australian Youth squad.
Sam Gooden is a VIS scholar and was a member of the 2016 Victorian Fury Squad. The goaler has also previously represented Tasmania.
