WITH TIME running out for Barbados netballers to qualify for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the local association has taken the bold steps of appointing two men to key positions in their senior team coaching staff.

The appointment of males to manage and coach the senior netball team is nothing new, since Anthony Roachford once held the position of manager in the past, while Alwyn Babb led the netball team to the Commonwealth Games in 2010 and the World Championships in 2011.

He will join the promoted Sandra Bruce-Small as well as Margaret Cutting in the coaching team.
