Netball - 29. August 2007.

Wilson to coach Queensland in 2008


As a proud Queenslander, Wilson is honoured by the appointment.

 

“I was captain of the Queensland Firebirds in 1997 and I now relish the challenge of encouraging young players to their best and taking Queensland to the top in our sport,” Wilson said.

 

“I am delighted that Netball Queensland has faith in me and to be honest, I feel it is a great honour to coach our team as netball takes this exciting step of an international competition.”

 

In 2006, Wilson coached the Queensland Firebirds to their first finals’ series in the Commonwealth Bank Trophy and just missed a second finals series in 2007 on percentage.

 

Netball Queensland President Jan Maggacis believes Wilson was the best candidate to coach Queensland’s premier netball team.

 

“For the first time in many years Queensland is very competitive with all teams and we are keen to keep that momentum and energy going,” Maggacis said.

 

Wilson captained the Australian netball team from 1996-1999 after debuting in the national team in 1985. She has 104 Test Caps and is the only Australian player to have competed in four World Netball championships.

 

The Tasman Trophy will commence in April 2008 with five teams from both Australia and New Zealand.
