Kevin Sheedy Welcomes Two Blues Netballers

Legendary AFL coach Kevin Sheedy welcomed netball as a division of the Prahran Football Club’s Community Sport Program (CSP) at a season launch at Toorak Park last Wednesday.

Sheedy, who joined Prahran as a 16 year-old, returned to his old club as the Two Blues announced two senior and 10 junior netball teams will represent the club in 2015.

Ten junior teams ranging in age from Rookies (Under 9) to Under 17s and one senior team will compete in the Prahran Netball Association competition starting next Saturday and one senior team will play at the Glen Eira Sports And Aquatic Centre.

The club’s operations manager Leanne McNamara  presented new Two Blues uniforms to each team manager.

Sheedy was joined by former Australian netballer Shelley O’Donnell who urged the girls to dream to be the best they could.

Federal Member for Higgins Kelly O’Dwyer again voiced her support for Stonnington Council to find much needed additional netball facilities.

The CSP operates in Stonnington primary schools, Horace Petty Housing Estate and Currajong Special Needs School and is co sponsored by East Malvern Community Bank and the Victoria Clinic for mental health.

The CSP was introduced in 2000 by Collingwood national recruiting manager Derek Hine and is now managed by Collingwood VFL coach Dale Tapping and Prahran Auskick co-ordinator Steve Zayler.
