At Turnford our motto is W.I.N. This is not, as it might first appear about winning at all costs, its about the ethos we live by, and the way we train our squads. The initials stand for:
Work hard, with Intensity and Never give up – W.I.N.
This attitude to netball (and indeed life) flows through everything we do, and we are so proud of the way our teams take it on board, and of the success they achieve. With this in mind we are delighted to be able to highlight FOUR members of our family, whose amazing work ethic and talent have led to exciting England Netball Call-ups.
Firstly our player call-ups. All three of these athletes play a vital role in Turnford’s National Prem One Squad.
Senior England Squad:
George Fisher – Reserve for the England V Australia Test Series and selected for the England High Performance Programme
Hannah Joseph – First cap achieved playing in the final England test V Australia and selected for the England High Performance Programme
U17 England Squad:
Zara Everitt – Selected for the U17 England squad to contest Netball Europe in March 2016 and selected for the National Academy Programme
Here’s what Coach Dannii Titmuss had to say about these three athletes:
“George and Zara are both examples of what hard work can achieve. Although 17 and 16 respectively, they already play key roles in Turnford’s National Prem squad. Both athletes train incredibly hard and are dedicated to their netball – often going above and beyond what is expected. Neither are satisfied with being a “good” player, and that mentality contributes to them becoming great players. They are still in the early stages of their netball careers and it is exciting to see them continue to develop. We look forward to watching them perform on an international stage over the coming season!”
“Hannah has been a great addition to Turnford this year. Her work ethic and desire to become the best athlete she can be perfectly matches the ethos of the club. It has been great to see Hannah develop over the season and we are incredibly proud of Hannah’s recent call up to the Senior Squad. We were both excited and proud to watch her take the court in the Red Dress in the England vs Australia Test Series.”
Dannii Titmuss – Turnford’s National Prem One Coach has been appointed as a selector for the National Academy Programme, responsible for selecting athletes at U17 and U19 level.
Here’s what Turnford’s Head Coach, Carole Titmuss, had to say about Dannii:
“Turnford are very proud of Danielle’s recent appointment as National Academy Selector. She is passionate about netball and the development of performance athletes. In a club environment she has incredibly high standards for the athletes and sets an example of working hard to achieve success, which the athletes follow. She is an asset to the club and forms part of a dedicated group of coaches who strive to get the best out of all the athletes they work with.”
The entire Turnford family is extremely proud of George, Hannah, Zara and Dannii. They are all fantastic role models for everyone that wears the Black and Yellow!
