Karen named as England U21 Head Coach

Our Director of Netball Karen Greig has been appointed by England Netball as the U21 Head Coach. She will take on the role in addition to her current duties at Thunder.

Karen said:

“Less than two weeks after that incredible day when we became the 2019 Vitality Netball Superleague Champions, I want to let every Thunder fan know that I am as committed to this team, and this franchise, as ever. My blood runs black and yellow, and it always will.

“This is an exciting time for both Thunder and for our sport as a whole. By taking on the U21 Head Coach role, as well as being Thunder’s Director of Netball, I look forward to being able to identify, develop and nurture England’s netball stars of the future, something we do so well here at Thunder and across the North West.”

In addition, Sheonah Forbes, current Thunder Performance Pathway Head Coach, will move to take on the England Netball Pathway Head Coach role.
