West Coast Fever Captain Nat Medhurst says she’s looking forward to working with Fever and Australian Fast5 Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich at the Fast5 Netball World Series in October.
The experienced shooter will join Marinkovich after being named in the squad yesterday, while fellow Fever athlete Kaylia Stanton was named as a Reserve.
Medhurst said it was a great opportunity to work with her club coach in the national environment.
“It’s awesome to be able to see Stacey take that step forward in this new environment with an Australian team, and it’ll be exciting to work alongside her in that format of the game,” Medhurst said.
“Hopefully as much for her as everyone else we can get a win.”
The 33-year-old possesses one of the game’s most impressive international resumes and will make her Fast5 debut at October’s event.
Medhurst said being named Fever Captain had contributed to strengthening her relationship with Marinkovich.
“We have certainly been able to get a greater understanding of what each other is like,” she said.
“We are on the same page in terms of what we want for this Club and we are both passionate about what we want this Club to achieve.”
“The things that Stacey has done in such a short amount of time is a testament to her.”
The Fast5 Netball World Series will be contested between Australia, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, South Africa and Malawi at Hisense Arena in Melbourne from October 28-29.
General admission tickets will go on sale from Monday July 24, with a range of fan packages also on offer.
