A post to introduce the team.
Hazel – Chair
My name is Hazel Paige and I have now been Chair person of the Club for 4 years and our aims are to achieve promotion for our senior teams and to introduce another junior team, also to increase senior and junior membership and Introduce walking netball in the future.
I work with the main committee and chair the meetings and AGM and work with the members to shape a development plan for the Club. Be a supportive leader, represent the club at external meetings and ensure good communication with membership and other Netball organisations. I also ensure the committee satisfactorily complete their assigned tasks.
I am also very active within the club as I coach, umpire, play (sometimes) and I am always around to support and encourage all the players, coaches, team managers, volunteers and chat to our supporters who come along to watch the games.
Donna – Vice Chair
I’ve been with the club for over 10 years, as a player, coach and umpire. For over 5 years I’ve held the role of Vice Chair, and currently play in the Hawks team – division one. I am a level two qualified coach and head up the development team at Suffolk Satellite. I enjoy volunteering at England Netball and regularly attend their international games.
Leanne – Secretary
This is my 6th season as club secretary for the club, and I really enjoy my role. It’s most challenging around the end of the season as we have lots to get ready for the AGM and then I also get a lot of information in for trials and affiliations to be ready for the beginning of the new season.
This year I play for the club in the Hawks, usually in the WA/WD position. And can often be found on the sidelines cheering on the other teams in the club.
Julie – Treasurer
I have been with the club for some years now after moving to Stowmarket from Sudbury and currently play for the Vets team as Goal Shooter . I have seen the club grow and develop. I have previously been team captain & Chairperson & I have just been asked to take on Treasurer as I have 30 years banking experience behind me & work in a finance role at Colchester Zoo.
I have enjoyed playing netball from school & playing county for under 18 & Under 21’s level. I am married with two daughters and enjoy travelling & fine dining with my husband and spending time with my family when time allows.
Emily – Umpiring Secretary
I am the Umpiring Secretary co-ordinating all the umpires for all of our teams. Also working with the young umpires encouraging and supporting them to get into the umpiring world! I also play in the Hawks in division 1. I’m a loud bubbly member of the club and you can always find me around the court somewhere!
