No meeting with Fowler-Reid - Daley-Morris

July 27, 2017

NETBALL Jamaica president Dr Paula Daley-Morris said no meeting was held between the association and shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid regarding the way forward for the sport.

Fowler-Reid had said in May that she and some of her teammates were upset at what she said was the "negative attention" netball in Jamaica had been getting since the arrival of new senior coach Jermaine Allison-McCracken and a drawn home series against Barbados.


No tension


Fowler-Reid had said in an interview that she would look to set up a meeting with the association. However, Daley-Morris said communication between herself and Fowler-Reid was good and there was no tension between them.

"We are always in touch, you know," Daley-Morris said. "We have a good relationship with the girls, we are always in touch. I've had conversations with Jhaniele even while she was away. If she wants to have a meeting still, she would've asked for it. She hasn't asked for one yet. Whenever she's ready, I'm sure she'll ask and we'll accommodate."

Fowler-Reid had previously played for the Southern Steel team in New Zealand, but has since moved to the West Coast Fever in Australia.

The big shooter took part in her first training yesterday since returning to the island. The Sunshine Girls are preparing to take part in the Caribbean Netball Championship in St Lucia and the Fast5 Netball World Series later this year.
