Kingston netballer Hannah Reid’s Surrey Storm booked home advantage in the Co-operative Superleague play-offs with a comprehensive 72-41 triumph at Loughborough Lightning on Monday night.

The 25-year-old trainee accountant, who appeared in a Superleague grand final while at Lightning, starred in defence alongside 36-year-old Janet Coulburne as Surrey romped to their 14th win of the season.

The result means Guildford-based Storm, coached by former England chief Mary Beardwood, cannot be pipped to top slot and sets up a semi-final clash with defending champions Team Bath on May 1.

It will be a rewarding end to the campaign for former Tiffin School for Girls student Reid, who has played second fiddle to England pair Geva Mentor and Sonia Mkoloma for much of the season.

Storm, who have recently moved their home court to the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford, will go into the semi-final clash looking to repeat a 43-40 home triumph at the start of the year and avenge the 54-47 defeat suffered in Bath last month.

The Grand Final will be held at Nottingham Trent FM Arena on May 15 and screened live on Sky Sports.
