The defender said: "I’ve been training loads behind the scenes and I’m so ready to get back out on court with the girls and build on the our performances following from a very short 2020 season.
“There are lots of good things still to come from this team and I’m thrilled to be representing Sirens for another season.”
Meanwhile, two-time Superleague champions Surrey Storm have re-signed Alima Priest.
She earned a promotion from a training partner to a full contract ahead of the 2021 season.

Head coach and player Mikki Austin added: “We are thrilled to have elevated Alima from a training partner to a full contract for 2021.
