Meet the Committee

Julie Amys – Secretary

I joined Thetford Netball Club in 1989 when the club was called Jeyes and have seen many changes over the years.  I have played in both the A and B teams throughout my time at the club.  I took on the role of Secretary in 2018.

Philippa(Phil) James – umpiring secretary.

I have been part of Thetford netball club for 13 plus years. I have been playing netball since the age of 10 and have represented my county Norfolk when I was 16-18. At the age of 40 I still continue to play and umpire. When did I start umpiring….I can’t remember it’s that long ago, but what I do know is that I love it. I am a C award umpire and I also mentor beginner umpires and those who are striving for their C award. I can also assess beginner umpires. Most people shy away from umpiring within the sport but I find it so rewarding and it’s helped me massively within my own game. #TeamWhite

Kate Clements – Treasurer

Mum to Cassie, Abby and Megan and a whole collection of animals at home. I love all sports but mainly spend my time watching the girls or power walking with our dogs. My husband and I own a courier company of which I am Finance Director and love working with numbers so of course helping out with the club is extremely rewarding.  I also volunteer at the local primary school with reading, cooking and as a school governor there and at a primary school in Thetford as really believe every child should be given opportunities to thrive no matter what their circumstances.

Tina Taylor – Welfare and Safeguarding Officer

I have been part of Thetford Netball Club since January 2017 as a supporting parent. As a qualified Safeguarding lead Professional in my “real job” I felt this role would be well suited. I have attended recent training that is relevant (Time to talk) for this role

Zara Veasey – Publicity officer

It is my job to promote the Club, what we do for our community and also what we are achieving as a club. I have been playing netball from a very young age. I started back at Thetford 3 years ago after having a break from netball to have children. Since then I have progressed on to complete my level one coaching qualification, I am also the captain of Thetford senior B team and play in the regional team. I have always had a passion for netball I love the competitive edge and sense of achievement you get out of the sport. I am also looking forward to progressing my coaching in the future with the club.

Jettie – Chair Person

My name is Jettie.  I am the chair person of Thetford netball club. I have been part of the club as a parent support since my daughter started playing for them.  I have never played netball as this is not a sport they play in The Netherlands.

Gill Alexander- vice chair

I took on the role of Vice Chairman in September 2020. I have a very long netball career, as can be seen from my post as a Coach. I hope to be able to help in moving this fantastic club forward to even greater heights in the future. Still really settling into the role, which has certainly been challenging this season!
