Ex-netball coach praised
President of the Barbados Netball Association (BNA), Nisha Craigwell, has come out in defence of the contribution which resigned coach Sandra Bruce-Small has made to the Bajan Gems and netball in Barbados.
“It is unfortunate that the media would use such phrases as ‘walking papers’ and ‘Bruce didn’t appear to have the answers to take the team forward’ to report on a netball coach opting to resign from a non-paying post,” said Craigwell yesterday.
Craigwell’s comments followed publication of an article in the Weekend Nation which revealed that Bruce-Small had resigned.
After multiple futile efforts to reach Craigwell on Thursday for a comment on Bruce’s resignation, the article quoted a netball source, who said: “If Bruce had not resigned, she would have been given her walking papers.” (KB/EZS)
