Severn Stars have signed Wales netball internationals Nia Jones and Bethan Dyke from Welsh side Celtic Dragons.

The Worcester-based team have also re-signed the duo's compatriot Georgia Rowe.

Stars are coached by former Wales and Dragons boss Melissa Bessell, nee Hyndman.

"Working alongside these three again is a dream for me. I know them all very well and what they are capable of," said Bessell.
