Skilbeck back to change Bats’ skill set

By Benalla Ensign

It is shaping up to be another exciting year as the Goorambat netball team prepares for another season.

Netball co-ordinator Kobi Chapman said the club was proud to announce returning player Amelia Skilbeck as coach of A and B-grade teams.

‘‘Amelia is excited about returning to coach,’’ Chapman said.

‘‘She has coached at the club in the past and done a great job, so it is great to see her return.

‘‘We have also welcomed new players Chelsea and Jacinta Beavis to the club. Their father Mark has played a big role within the footy club, playing in club premierships, so it is great to see his daughters come to the club and also his son Dylan Beavis playing football.

‘‘We have been working hard at pre-season which will benefit the team. We look forward to the start of the season.’’

The Bats are still seeking junior netballers for under-15s and under-17s — if you are interested please phone netball co-ordinator Kobi Chapman on 0421859998.
