Her sister Helen Naylor commented on her older sisters return to the club “I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am to play alongside Sarah again… my best basketball years were spent playing with her, and I really think she is the missing piece to our squad this year, she has already fitted back in so well with our style of play and the girls love playing with her, she will help us massively in our quest for silverware” Sarah said about her return  “”After stepping away from the Court for a couple of years to have children I am really excited to be back playing for the Hatters. I am really looking forward to playing with both teammates I’ve played with before and also the new players on the team. I’m not expecting a lot from myself after being out of the game for a while but I hope I can contribute by bringing my knowledge and experience of the game to add to what is already a very strong Hatters team this year!”
