Future of Cobar netball looks to be in very good hands

Jenna Fullagar, Sherrin Wharton, Kelly Fairbank, Haylee Prince and Sarah Irvine make up the new executive of the Cobar Netball Association.

The Cobar Netball Association (CNS) has welcomed a few new faces to its executive committee following the club’s annual general meeting last Wednesday.

Haylee Prince took over the role of president of the club after outgoing co-presidents Lisa Travis and Nikki Davey stepped down from sharing the role.

Mrs Prince will be supported by her vice presidents Sarah Irvine and Sherrin Wharton.

Jenna Fullagar has taken on the secretary’s role and Kelly Fairbank was returned as the club’s treasurer. Amie Hill returns as representative coordinator and Alexandra Hernando was appointed as Umpire Convenor.

The outgoing presidents Mrs Travis and Mrs Davey praised their hard working committee for their support and assistance over the past three seasons.

“We can attribute the success of CNA to a group effort of dedicated ladies who love sport and the opportunities it provides for the women of Cobar,” Mrs Travis said.

“The successful introduction of the representative arm of netball with the Cobar Blues coming on board worked well, and we are confident this relationship will continue into the future.”

Mrs Travis, who was returned to the general committee, said she hoped the ever growing junior numbers would hopefully continue.

She said Netball NSW has committed to more visits to offer training in 2017.

“This is invaluable for the skill development of our junior players, parent volunteers, coaches, managers and umpires.

“As always without our volunteers and umpires the season would not have been possible, their dedication and support was appreciated.

“Nikki and I are excited to report that CNA is in good hands for the upcoming 2017 season.”

She said CNA will be calling for expressions of interest for a junior coordinator and the formation of a junior committee to work with CNA to ensure that junior netball remains strong in Cobar.


The AGM revealed CNA is in a good financial position for 2017 and the new executive committee have some exciting and innovative ideas for 2017. The general committee is made of up returning members keen to assist the new executives & ensure the 2017 season is our best yet.
