Tamsin Greenway Steps Down as Scotland Head Coach.

Netball Scotland today announced Tamsin Greenway will be stepping down as the Head Coach of the Scottish Thistles. Despite her fantastic leadership since February 2020, which began amid global challenges, Tamsin has chosen to step down due to reasons beyond her control.

In a heartfelt message, Tamsin expressed, “I am absolutely gutted to be leaving my role as head coach of Scotland, it was a really difficult decision and not one that was taken lightly.
Sadly, for reasons out of my control, it was one that I had to do.”

“Although I feel like there is a lot of unfinished business, I am actually very excited about what this group can do next. I am so proud of what we have achieved in such a short period of time, I think it shows the incredible athletes and young women I have been working with.”

“So although I am gutted I won’t get to carry on with my journey with them, I really believe their next chapter is going to be huge and I’m proud to have played a small part of it.”

Praising the Netball Scotland organisation, she continued, ” I have absolutely loved my time up in Scotland, I have fallen in love with the country. I think the organisation as a whole have been so open minded in terms of how they have adapted and changed and always been able to think outside the box, I think that is what attracted me to the role in the first place.”

“Claire Nelson was instrumental in getting me into the role and Karen Atkinson has just been incredible to work for and with, full credit to what both of those ladies have done changing the game up in Scotland.”

“The talent we have seen, and not just talking about the players that have come through into the senior squad but also through the age groups. I mean the pathway is something I am so proud to have had just a little bit of an impact on.”

“The likes of Lesley MacDonald, Rachel Cremin, Hayley MacKellar and all the coaches that have worked with those players and the effort they have put in has been huge and we have seen so many fundamental changes that are going to make such an impact on the future of our Thistles programme.”

Karen Atkinson, Netball Scotland Performance Director, shared her sentiments: “The impact that Tamsin has had on the Scottish Thistles, our Pathway, and Netball in Scotland is immeasurable. Her influence extends beyond the court through her exceptional knowledge and her ability to set new benchmarks. We feel very fortunate to have had her at the helm for the past cycle and wish her every success in her future endeavours. We’re confident that she will continue to champion netball in Scotland, even from a distance.”

Netball Scotland acknowledges the dedication and passion Tamsin brought to her role. The foundation she laid ensures that the team’s future is in strong hands, and they remain poised for success on the world stage.
