NJ top brass mov­ing to ease un­cer­tainty

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Robert Bai­ley/Gleaner Writer

THE TOP brass of Net­ball Ja­maica (NJ) met last night as dis­cus­sions con­tinue on ways to ease the un­cer­tainty caused by the sud­den res­ig­na­tion of co-coach Sasher-Gaye Henry.

Pres­i­dent of NJ, Dr Paula Da­ley-Mor­ris, first vice-pres­i­dent Tricia Robin­son and other mem­bers of the ex­ec­u­tive at­tended the meet­ing. A re­lease is­sued by Henry in which she sought to ex­plain the rea­sons for her res­ig­na­tion was among the top­ics which were down to be dis­cussed.

Henry, in her press re­lease, de­nied that she re­signed from the post be­cause of her re­mu­ner­a­tion pack­age.

“Con­trary to me­dia re­ports, I wish to in­di­cate that my de­ci­sion was not based on the re­mu­ner­a­tion for the job,” she said. “There were two bases. One was re­lated to the per­son needs of my fam­ily, which I re­gard as a pri­or­ity at this time.

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

Henry and Marvette An­der­son, were named co-coaches of the Sun­shine Girls fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of Jer­maine Al­li­son-McCracken in July last year.

Since then the Sun­shine Girls won bronze at last month’s Com­mon­wealth Games af­ter de­feat­ing New Zealand 60-55. Henry and An­der­son also guided the team to the sil­ver medal at the World Fast5 Se­ries in Aus­tralia in Oc­to­ber last year.

Henry who re­signed from the post last week, met with the Hu­man Re­source Com­mit­tee of Net­ball Ja­maica on Wed­nes­day, but that meet­ing ended with­out any agree­ment on the way for­ward.
