NEW players…new coach…renewed hope.
The Hamilton Kangaroos may have entered the new world of the Hampden competition last year, but for the netballers, the 2014 season will bring a definite rebirth and the chance for greater success.
The Kangaroos learned many things from its debut season and chief amongst them was the need to recruit.
The club has worked extremely hard in preparation for the coming season and there is a sea of new faces compared with last season.
Sara Byrne, the A Grade coach, says that despite an unfortunate event, she is looking forward to the season ahead, which begins to get serious with the Athlete’s Foot Cup held in Port Fairy today.
“I’m pretty positive with what we’ve got,” she said.
“Probably our only disappointment is we’ve lost Mikayla Rhook to a knee injury for the entire season out of the A Grade side, so we’ve had to make some adjustments to start the season but we’re just going to play it by ear.
“We are absolutely devastated because it was wonderful to have her on board, but unfortunately these things happen and we have to move on and find someone to fill that position.”
