Tickets are selling fast for the great event taking place in Glasgow at the end of the month.
One of netball’s most iconic names, Sue Gaudion, is coming to Glasgow and we could not be more excited! Sue will be working closely with the Strathclyde Sirens performance team in their pre-season preparation by delivering a series of technical sessions and workshops.
Sue Gaudion said: “This is a terrific opportunity to head to Glasgow, a place I’ve never been to before, and assist in the preparation of the Strathclyde Sirens and work with new coach Lesley MacDonald. Our sport relies heavily on our athletes giving back, and Lesley has plenty to offer as she manoeuvres her way in to the life of a Head Coach.
Over the past few years I have been encouraged by the tenacity of the Scotland athletes and looking forward to working with both home-grown talent and the fluttering of International talent that Lesley has lined up to represent in the English Super League.
I am also very aware of the passionate fan base in Scotland, and have had the pleasure of meeting some of them at various International events. I have always said that a Team exists far stronger when its fans are connected to the players and therefore sharing in the Club’s success. Looking forward to meeting as many of the Scottish fans whilst I’m there!”
Lesley MacDonald, Strathclyde Sirens Head Coach said: “I am extremely excited to welcome Sue to the Sirens. With a hugely impressive coaching CV we are very privileged to have her working with the players and the coaching team”
Karen Atkinson, Strathclyde Sirens Technical Director said: “I’m so excited that Sue has agreed to come over and work with Sirens for a couple of weeks during our pre-season. Sue was my coach when I played one year at West Coast Fever, she was fantastic and brought so much energy and knowledge to the netball court. I know that the girls at Sirens and the coaching staff are going to really benefit from having Sue there, she knows the game inside out and she’s a lot of fun so really excited to see what Sue’s going to bring.”
