New netball president
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.
