2018 Junior Club Captain - Francesca Platt

Francesca  Platt

Francesca has been a member with Aspley Devils for seven years – over half of her lifespan! Since the club was local and many of her friends had signed up to play, she was excited to join our netball club.  


During her time at Aspley Devils, Francesca has enjoyed many aspects to the game of netball, singling out teamwork as being the one aspect that she values most highly: 


“My favourite thing about playing netball is the togetherness embedded in each team. All positions rely and help each other throughout the whole game. I believe this also helps to create a happy team ethic that will help the team strive to become the best that they can be.”


As this year’s Junior Club Captain, Francesca is tremendously passionate about promoting netball to younger girls and boys, and continuing the development of our wonderful netball community for both current and future generations of players at Aspley Devils.  


“My biggest plan for being Junior Club Captain is to promote netball passionately to younger girls and boys, and create a wonderful group of players, coaches and parents that understand the importance and love of netball when growing up.”


With her sociable and fun personality and her undying love for the sport, Francesca is working to ensure that she is consistently leading by example and encouraging a positive energy at Aspley Devils. 


Some advice Francesca would give to anyone interested in getting involved in the netball community at Aspley Devils – whether as a player, a coach, an umpire, or as a supporter – is:


“Find a place that truly values your worth as a member for their club. Obviously, however, my first rule is to always have fun!”

2018 Senior Club Captain - Sharon Murray

S  Murray

This is Sharon’s fourth year with Aspley Devils, and third year as a player. After looking for a netball club for her two daughters to join, Sharon was introduced to Aspley Devils through a friend who had recently joined the club. During her first attendance to an Aspley Devils grading session, she knew that this was the netball club for her:

 

“First impressions were a big factor. The club president was young woman dressed in a Fluro vest and steel cap boots. The then uniform convenor was loud and friendly, oozing with passion. She introduced me to her best friend, Amy, who was some super coach disguised as a grandma. And players of all ages affectionately gravitated around a woman with bright pink hair.”

 

Sharon’s favourite thing about playing netball is getting to share it with her daughters:

 

“Every Saturday, three Aspley Devils get out of my car, ready to play hard for their teams. Watching my daughters play and having them watch me play, is the best feeling ever! I’m not so keen on their blow-by-blow critique of my game on the drive home though.”

 

As this year’s Senior Club Captain, Sharon is keen to support every club member by watching as many games as possible. She is always there to help out, whatever the task may be. She works to ensure that all the new club members feel welcome and consistently adds to the positive energy at Aspley Devils. Sharon hopes to be the best Senior Club Captain she can be. 

 

Some advice Sharon would give to anyone interested in getting involved in netball at Aspley Devils – whether as a player, a coach, an umpire, or as a supporter – is to get out there and have fun with the sport:

 Netball is more than fighting for a car park on Saturday. Our nippers program teaches the importance of responsibility, teamwork and most of all having fun in a healthy active way. Our senior teams are open for everyone, so if you are wanting to get back into netball, try it for the first time, or are a Mum like I was who was pacing the side-lines, desperate to find out if I could still hold my own on a netball court, give it a go – you may just surprise yourself!”

Amendments to rules

As of 1 January 2018, some amendments to existing netball rules will be implemented across all associated competitions.  Please see the links below from Netball Australia explaining the changes as well as a copy of the new 2018 Rules of Netball handbook.  It's important that all our members (not just our umpires and players!) have an understanding of the amendments so we can apply them correctly during the season.
