Langman returns for the Mystics

Langman returns for the Mystics

Media Release
10 July 2014

Silver Fern Laura Langman has re-signed with the Northern Mystics for 2015. The linchpin centre who has notched up more than 100 ANZ Championship netball matches, will join new recruit Millie Lees in the midcourt for the Auckland-based side next year.

Langman is another key signing for the Mystics who have also retained Maria Tutaia, Cathrine Latu and Temalisi Fakahokotau.

Coach Debbie Fuller says Langman’s preparation and attention to detail is highly valued and she has huge expectations of herself.

“Laura went through a big adjustment when she joined the side this year but she worked through it,” says Fuller who is looking forward to watching Langman’s connections with her team grow even stronger in 2015.

“After a tough start she finished the season one of the top-ranked centres, showing she is an athlete who never stops trying.”

For Langman, the opportunity to “build on combinations established this year” – especially the inroads she made with goal shoot Cathrine Latu – was a factor in her decision to stay.

She concedes that it took a while for the Mystics to hit their straps, but “when you put a new group together, it does takes time”.

And she’d like the team to start the new season the way they finished this one – with emphatic victories.

Mystics CEO Julie Paterson says she is thrilled Langman is returning and that the 2015 team is shaping up nicely.
