Hanslow staying for sixth year as coach of A-grade Demons

January 31, 2017

Di Hanslow will go around again as Shepparton United’s coach, entering her sixth year at the helm of the Goulburn Valley Netball League A-grade side.

Matt Healey will support Hanslow and be the club’s B-gradecoach, taking over from Kara Dawes.

Dawes will continue to be involved with the team, fulfilling a role as Healey’s assistant, as will Megan Trevaskis.

The four coaches leading the Demons’ top two teams are no stranger to working with each other, having coached the Goulburn Region’s representative sides last year.

Healey and Dawes teamed up to coach the under-17 team, while Hanslow and Trevaskis took charge of the under-15 side.

United’s A-grade side will be aiming to for an improved output on last year’s effort where it finished in the bottom four with just four wins.

But the side showed its potential to play finals this year by coming within reach of a host of top six teams.

The Demons’ B-grade outfit reached September action, eliminated in the first week of finals following a tight loss to Benalla.

United started trials for its A-grade, B-grade and B-reserve sides on Sunday, with try outs continuing tonight at Mercy Centennial Stadium at Deakin Reserve.
