NNL and NFL Best and Fairest

Last night the NNL and NFL held the Best and Fairest count for the 2014 season.  Greensborough Netball Club had two players in attendance knowing they had both polled within the top five of their respective section.

Thea from our section seven team, a solid shooter that had a fantastic season, polled exceedingly well for her first NNL season of netball.  Thea was named in third place, gathering 17 votes from the NNL umpires during the season.  This is an exceptional achievement for a classy player that only started playing netball in February this year after making the transition over from soccer.

Sharna from our premiership winning section two team, played every minute of every game in season 2014 and captained the team from the GK anchor all year.  Sharna made the transition to GNC from the Euroa Football Netball Club in the Goulburn Valley Football Netball League, where she played at the top level for the last few seasons as a shooter.  In her first year of the NNL, Sharna also polled exceptionally well with the umpires and finished the count in second place.

Also last night, GFC’s premiership winning ruckman, Michael Hooper, finished in third place of the NFL’s Best and Fairest to cap off a great season.

The Football Club also had four players listed in the 2014 team of the year, Daniel McLinden, Tim Bongetti, Matthew Hyde and Michael Hooper along with the coach of the year our coach Robert Hyde.

Congratulations to all the Greensborough players and coaches on this fantastic achievement to top off 2014 as the Year of the Boro!

This Friday night is the club’s Best and Fairest count, stay tuned for the results live from our Facebook page.

GNC announces Head Coach for season 2015

GNC Media ReleaseThe Greensborough Netball Club sadly announce the departure of 2014 Head Coach Alan Watson at the conclusion of this season, however we wish him all the best with his 2015 appointment with the Melbourne University Lightning in the Victorian Netball League and we thank him for his time and efforts during the current season.

Taking over the reins as the Head Coach for the Greensborough Netball Club in 2015 is current assistant coach, Sharon Ashworth.

Sharon, originally an A-grade mid-courter from the Beechworth Football and Netball Club in the Ovens and King and Tallangatta and Districts leagues has been with the Greensborough Netball Club (GNC) since late 2013.

Previous to GNC, Sharon was Head Coach for the under 15’s with the Banyule & District Netball Association (BDNA) for three years and prior to that coached the under 17’s division one team and the open division four representative teams.

GNC President Nicole Doherty says, “Sharon has a style of coaching that is straight to the point but in a positive constructive way, players look up to her and are eager to learn new skills at training each week and love the encouragement she gives on the sidelines during games and when your off the court. Sharon has been a bright fresh spark to Greensborough Netball Club and I am honoured to have her as Head Coach for 2015.”

Sharon currently coaches team two in the Northern Netball League (NNL) division two, and team five in division seven. Both teams are likely to finish in second position on their respective ladders at the conclusion of the regular season for the NNL this Friday night.

GNC division two shooter Chantelle Power says, “Sharon is nurturing and positive with her feedback, but isn’t afraid to give it to us straight! She’s got an amazing netball brain and understands the game better than most. She’s brought back my love for the game and I’ve had the most amazing and fun season being coached by her.”

Team two Captain, Sharna Enright adds, “The most influential aspect is Sharon’s leadership. Her knowledge and commitment makes her a incredible coach and mentor. The competition has been very tough throughout section two this season so we are all very excited and thrilled about making finals.”

With the 2014 season nearing completion, GNC has experienced many successes throughout the year. “Two out of the five teams are featuring in the finals series and with the teams that will miss the finals, they are more than worthy of a finals place. GNC has a strong list of players at the club and look forward to featuring well over the coming weeks and into season 2015,” says Sharon.

Sharon’s key coaching aims are defensive pressure and providing a culture of netball excellence, motivation and enthusiasm for players.

Current starting division two Goal Defence Francesca Hickman says, “Sharon has been a wonderful coach, and the best I have ever had. She is always positive and encouraging and her attention to the game and individual players is fabulous. She can see what needs to be done during the game to work to our advantage or worked on later during training.”

Sharon is already looking towards season 2015 with, “the appointment of assistant coaches, retaining current players and selection of new players high on the agenda in the next few months.”

Greensborough Netball Club currently has five teams in the NNL and are looking for additional assistant coaches for the 2015 season.

Anyone interested in playing or coaching should contact the club for more information.
