A week after RJR Sports broke news that Sasher-Gaye Henry had submitted her resignation as co-coach of the senior Sunshine Girls, she has given two main reasons for her decision. Henry, who also lectures at the GC Foster College, revealed on Thursday, that one of those reasons "related to increasing concerns about continuing professional weaknesses in the administration of the sport".
Henry, who made the revelations in a written statement to the media, said the other reason is related to the personal needs of her family, which she says she regards as a priority at this time. In the statement the coach who helped Jamaica to the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games last month, asserted that her resignation had nothing to do with her remuneration package.
She also said the board of Netball Jamaica had acknowledged her letter of resignation. Up to late Thursday afternoon, there were no details from a board meeting of Netball Jamaica where Henry's resignation was to be discussed. That followed Wednesday's meeting between the coach and Netball Jamaica's Human Resource Committee.
