West Coast Fever have today unveiled star defender Courtney Bruce as their 2019 Captain for the second consecutive year.
Stacey Francis was again named Vice Captain, while Jess Anstiss rounds out the Leadership Group, which was elected following a confidential player vote.
Bruce said she was honoured to be named Captain for the second year.
“I’m incredibly excited to be voted back in as Captain,” Bruce said.
“I loved last year and it was a big learning curve, so I am excited to keep growing and challenging myself in this space.”
“Our group is full of leaders, so I expect everyone to continue to have a voice and lead at training and games.”
“This Club means the world to me and I’m excited to see where we go in 2019.”
West Coast Fever Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich was confident the trio would lead the Club in the best possible manner.
“We are spoilt by the quality of self leaders in this group and these three athletes certainly epitomise what West Coast Fever is about, and the way in which they lead, and live our values and behaviours, is exemplary,” Marinkovich said.
“This group demonstrated that they empower their fellow athletes and staff around them across this year, and I am confident that Courtney, Stacey and Jess will drive the standards that West Coast Fever are known for.”
“Courtney is incredibly passionate about our Club and West Australian netball across the board, and she has a ferocious drive to evolve her leadership, which will ensure the Club continues to inspire its Members and fans.”
The Club has seen significant support from the public just weeks into its Membership drive, with more than 3,000 people joining Fever as a 2019 Member.
