Northern Thunder Appoints New Head Coach

Following the recent take over of Northern Thunder by Netball UK, the
North West franchise has now announced the appointment of Mike Greenwood
Snr. as Director of Coaching for Northern Thunder for the 2008-9 season of
the Co-operative Netball Superleague. Mike is not only Head Coach of the
extremely successful Oldham Netball Club but is also Director of Coaching
for Lancashire. He has extensive International experience having coached
the England Under 17's and under 19's squads to victory in the European
Netball Championships.


Michael Greenwood Jnr., co-owner of Netball UK Northern Thunder,
commented, "Together with the separate counties that make up the North
West region, the franchise's new committee is preparing a five-year plan
to develop netball throughout the region. Funding will be provided for the
regions' High Performance Squad, linking it with the England National
Talent League squad. From this youth system the best of the youngsters
will feed into the full Co-operative Netball Superleague squad - and
ultimately the prospect of appearing in a televised match - with Northern
Thunder challenging for title honours. That is our aim"!!

Netball UK Ltd. recently announced plans for a major investment in the
re-development of Northern Thunder, the squad which finished the 2007-8
season in last place, with only one win for the season
