- Sports · England

Blighty Net­ball Club is wel­com­ing Jodi Brown (pic­tured) as its new pres­i­dent.

Brown re­places Vicki Ack­ers, who is step­ping down to a vice pres­i­dent role, at the club’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing held in late Septem­ber.

The new pres­i­dent has been in­volved in the club most of her life and is look­ing for­ward to mak­ing her im­pres­sion on the Redeyes.

‘‘I am very ex­cited to be pres­i­dent of such a great club,’’ she said.

‘‘It is go­ing to be chal­leng­ing and I never thought I would be in the po­si­tion I am, but I’m ready to give it a go.

‘‘I played in the club my­self grow­ing up, and I have been in­volved in the club again for the last four years when my daughter Ste­vie Bate­man started play­ing.

‘‘I have been on the com­mit­tee for the pre­vi­ous two years. There was an op­por­tu­nity that arose to step into this po­si­tion, and Vicki (Ack­ers) has given me a lot of con­fi­dence to do so.’’

Brown is hop­ing to help the club grow and re­main an en­joy­able team spir­ited club.

‘‘I thought it was my time to put my mark on the club and there is a great sup­port­ing com­mit­tee with me to do so.

‘‘We have a good com­mit­tee with lots of pas­sion for the club and for net­ball so I think we can do great things.’’

Sec­re­tary and trea­surer of the club is Kelly Ni­cholls and com­mit­tee mem­bers are Judy Bun­nett, Jenny Wheeler and Kris­teen Cul­ton.
