Sarah Kelleher, the influential Irish international, returns to the Slough side when they start their new season's campaign against Fyffes Leicester at Melton Mowbray tomorrow as the Premier League kicks into action, writes Bill Colwill.

Missing from the Slough line-up will be their Olympians, Mandy Nicholson, Fiona Greenham and Jane Smith who are required to rest until mid- November, and the former Slough and Great Britain captain Sue Chandler who is awaiting a back operation.

Leicester will be missing their two from Sydney, Kirsty Bowden and Helen Richardson, but will be strengthened by the return from Loughborough Students of Kate Sharland and the arrival from Kettering of Anne Panter. South African international goalkeeper Caroline Birt is another newcomer.

Hightown begin the defence of their Premiership title with a game at home against Chelmsford.
