Henry to con­tinue as coach fol­low­ing talks with hi­er­ar­chy

Stabroek News Sunday - - SUNDAY SPORT -

– Sash­erGaye Henry is set to con­tinue as Sun­shine Girls coach fol­low­ing clear-the-air talks with Net­ball Ja­maica.

The for­mer na­tional player re­signed nearly a week ago but the lo­cal gov­ern­ing body said in a state­ment it had met with Henry to dis­cuss the mat­ters sur­round­ing the de­ci­sion, and had man­aged to smooth over the is­sues.


“Sasher-Gaye Henry met with the Hu­man Re­source Com­mit­tee of Net­ball Ja­maica and sub­se­quently, with the pres­i­dent, Mrs Paula Da­ley-Mor­ris. The meet­ing fa­cil­i­tated open dis­cus­sions about the fac­tors sur­round­ing the res­ig­na­tion,” Net­ball Ja­maica said.

“We are pleased to in­form the pub­lic that all par­ties have agreed that what is most com­mon among us is the love for net­ball and our un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to net­ball to work to­gether to move the sport for­ward.

“Given the above con­sen­sus, the board of di­rec­tors has voted not to ac­cept Miss Henry’s res­ig­na­tion.”

Henry quit abruptly just a month af­ter she and fel­low coach, Marvette An­der­son, guided Ja­maica to bronze at the Com­mon­wealth Games in Gold Coast, Aus­tralia.

Ini­tial me­dia re­ports said Henry was dis­sat­is­fied with her fi­nan­cial ar­range­ment with Net­ball Ja­maica but she sub­se­quently rub­bished those claims.

“There were two bases. One was re­lated to the per­sonal needs of my fam­ily, which I re­gard as a pri­or­ity at this time,” Henry said ear­lier in the week.

“The other re­lated to my in­creas­ing con­cerns about con­tin­u­ing pro­fes­sional weak­nesses in the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the sport.”
