The Northern Mystics have unveiled four signings for the 2018 ANZ Premiership.

Silver Fern shooter Bailey Mes is the most high profile player to re-sign, while rising midcourter Elisapeta Toeava has also committed to another season with the Mystics.

To complete a quadruple dose of attacking signings, young shooters Tera-Maria Armani and Jamie Hume have also been locked in.

Hume makes the move from the champion Southern Steel to join the Mystics while Armani has signed on for a second season with the side.


Mystics chief executive Julie Paterson said this was always a busy time of the season and they were pleased to be building their squad including the introduction of some new players alongside core players from this year's campaign.

"It is exciting to announce that first wave of player signings for the Mystics and we look forward to adding a mixture of experience and fresh faces to the side," she said.

"We're lucky to welcome back Bailey and Elisapeta who made up such a strong component of our attacking end, along with youngster Tera-Maria who is also back to the Mystics as well as goal attack Jamie who brings something new to the squad."

Mes shot at 87 per cent this season, scoring the fourth most goals in the competition, and Toeava made big strides to become a Silver Ferns trialist.

Armani made her premiership debut against the Northern Stars this year and also featured for the Mystics at the Super Club competition in Nelson recently, while the 21-year-old Hume will move north following a season of limited court-time with the Steel.

The Mystics are favoured to re-sign captain Anna Harrison, while Silver Ferns goal attack Maria Tutaia is a notable absentee from the first slew of attacking signings.
