Bethany Williams and Shaye Skraha, both sponsored by the Eaton Tavern, are cousins living in Bunbury, playing in the West Australian Netball League.

Williams has recently made the move from the Northern Territory to Bunbury to pursue her netball career.

"I'm very thankful that the club has been so supporting and welcoming, and I am thoroughly enjoying my relocation to play for the Souwest Jets," she said.

Williams was lucky enough to be selected in the 17 and Under Northern Territory state team for the National Netball Championships in April.

With a stellar performance, she was selected in the 17 and Under Australian squad, which allowed her to travel to the Australian Institute of Sport for an excellence camp, as well as debuting for the Australian Netball League with the Northern Territory Storm.

A key defender for the league side, Williams is continuing to improve her skills in Bunbury, and Jets are excited to have gained another star.

Shaye Skraha is a key defender for the Jets 20/U side. In her second season with the Jets, Skraha is constantly impressing coaches and the opposition with her relentless effort in defence and fast footwork.

Her ability to get around and take a clean intercept is spectacular, and she is causing havoc for the opposition's shooting circle.

As the youngest player in the squad, Skraha is exceeding expectations for a player of her age and experience.

"I'm very grateful for this incredible opportunity to be a part of Jets - a fantastic club with a tremendous culture. i can't wait to see where the season takes us," she said.

This week, the Jets will take on the East Fremantle Sharks at the Eaton Recreation Centre.

The Jets' League squad will welcome the return of star players Sloan Burton, Giselle Taylor and Jessica Repacholi.

Last year saw the Jets take out all three of their home games, in front of capacity crowds.

The U20s clash begins at 5pm on Saturday, prior to the league game at 6.45pm. Entry for children Under 16 is free.
