RJR Sports understands that that Sasher-Gaye henry has handed in her resignation as co-coach of Jamaica’s Sunshine Girls. It’s not yet known if her resignation will take effect but it’s understood it was sent to the office of Netball Jamaica on Monday. Efforts to reach both Henry and Netball Jamaica president Dr Paula Daley-Morris by phone on Friday were unsuccessful and our efforts to contact them are continuing.
It’s understood that Netball Jamaica has a board meeting scheduled for Saturday and it’s expected that Henry’s resignation letter will be revealed to the entire board at that meeting. It’s understood Henry is not pleased with her present salary package from Netball Jamaica and also the co-coaching arrangement and would prefer to operate in a single head coaching capacity.
Henry and co-coach Marvette Anderson were appointed interim coaches last August following the resignation of the previous head coach Jermaine Allison-McCracken in July. Henry and Anderson then led the Sunshine Girls to a second place finish at the Fast Five Championship in Australia last October.
In March of this year Netball Jamaica decided to continue with the co-coaching arrangement and subsequently offered both Henry and Anderson 6-month contracts to lead the Sunshine Girls to a quad series in New Zealand and last month’s Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.
Meanwhile, president of Netball Jamaica, Dr Paula Daley-Morris replying to RJR's queries via text message about henry's resignation, said they had "no comment at this moment in time".
