Northern Mystics sign Millie Lees

Northern Mystics sign Millie Lees

Media Release
7 July 2014

Dynamic midcourter Millie Lees is heading to the Northern Mystics next season. Lees, who has 11 test caps for the Silver Ferns, has been playing ANZ Championship netball for the Wellington-based Haier Pulse for the past six seasons. But the qualified doctor, who grew up in Pukekohe, can’t wait to head north again and link up with shooters Maria Tutaia and Cathrine Latu in the Mystics attack.

“I’m excited about the chance to play alongside them and I hope I can complement them. The Mystics have always been an exciting team and it will great to be a part of it next year.”

Lees, 25, says she’s loved her Pulse experience – the players, the coaching staff and living in Wellington – but it was time for a change, a fresh challenge and a chance to recharge her netball career.

Coach Debbie Fuller says Lees will add an element of precision to the attacking line. “Camilla is consistent, mature and can slot into both centre and wing attack. She has shown she can take on the physicality of the game and extend herself. She adds experience, plays with precision and has a consistently high work rate.”

Mystics CEO Julie Paterson says Lees is a significant addition to the 2015 roster, which already includes Tutaia, Latu and Temalisi Fakahokotau.
