Player of the week | Fiona Morrissey

Position: GS/GA
Height: 180cm
How long have you been playing netball for?  28 years – longer than all my team mates have been alive!!!
Favourite netball player of all-time, and why? Irene Van Dyk!  Because she loved the game and played on and on and on at the top level – she was inspiring!  I met her once and she was super friendly and encouraging and I just love her attitude.  True legend.
Favourite State League moment? Being able to return to Arawang after nine years away and re-join the Division 1 side, with the same coach still going strong after all those years!
How do you spend your time off the court?  Spending time with friends and family, sleeping and shopping!!
What’s one piece of advice you would give to someone keen to try out netball?  DO IT!!  The worst thing that can happen is you realise it’s not the sport for you…but you’ll meet some new people and make some new friends along the way and if you don’t try, you’ll never know!
Why are you excited to represent your District at the 2018 Canterbury State League Competition?  The competition is fierce and the standards are high – it gives me the opportunity to play the sport I love at a competitive, exciting level.
