Janine Southby Resigns From Silver Ferns

Janine Southby Resigns From Silver Ferns

Friday 20 July

The head coach of the Silver Ferns, Janine Southby, has resigned from her post in the wake of Netball New Zealand’s Independent Review of the 2018 Commonwealth Games campaign.

Netball New Zealand CEO Jennie Wyllie said, “Earlier today I accepted Janine Southby’s resignation from her role as Silver Ferns head coach.

“I would like to acknowledge the contribution that Janine has made and thank her for her hard work. Janine remains a key member of the Netball family, a fine coach and we look forward to having the opportunity to work with her in the future,” Wyllie said.

“I am very sad to have reached this point,” Ms Southby said today.

“We were at a real point of transition when I was appointed and I believed it would take time to make the necessary change.

“Over the last two years I have worked hard to develop a high performance culture based on accountability and self-responsibility. I felt we were making steps in the right direction however, I have to acknowledge this hasn’t happened as quickly or as well as I would have liked.

“The results we were able to deliver through the transition were unacceptable and far less than what we were aiming for. As head coach, I have to front up to my own responsibility in producing those results and I have. I’m as gutted as anyone that we couldn’t produce the results we aimed for.”

Netball New Zealand will name a Silver Ferns squad on the 14th August ahead of the Netball Quad Series in September which will be played in New Zealand and Australia, while the process to appoint a new Silver Ferns head coach will commence immediately.
