Rachael Vanderwal Joins Uni Ferrol in Spain’s Top-Flight

Rachael Vanderwal has joined LFB side Uni Ferrol for the 2017-18 season, the club announced today.

The GB Senior guard makes the switch from Zaragoza having averaged 6.0 points per game in 26 appearances last season.

Vanderwal recently played for GB in a friendly tournament in Minsk, Belarus where the Senior team picked up two victories from their four games.

The 2012 Olympian – who turns 34 later this month – also serves as an assistant coach for the GB Under-20’s with the initial squad announced yesterday.

Vanderwal spent several years in Ireland to start her pro career before moving to Spain with two seasons with Gernika before joining Zaragoza for the 2016-17 campaign.

Zaragoza finished with a 10-16 record last season, while Uni Ferrol secured a top-four league finish (15-11) before losing in the semi-finals of the playoffs.
