National senior netballer Sasha Gaye-Henry says she will be hanging up her Sunshine Girls bib after she returns from representing Jamaica at the Netball World Cup in Sydney, Australia in August.

The centre court player was thanking Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) for its support in helping her to attend three Netball World Championships since 2007. One of the most experienced players on the 12-member squad, Henry says she will get more involved in coaching after she retires.

Henry stated that the consistent support she had received from JNBS was unusual and encouraged more firms to contribute to the national team in this way.

She was addressing Netball Jamaica executives as well as representatives of JNBS and the Gold Rush Down Under campaign at a luncheon at the Spanish Court Hotel yesterday.

Gavin Beckford, JNBS executive for marketing and brand management, responded by thanking Henry for her outstanding efforts on and off the court in support of netball in the country over the years and wished her success in Australia, as well as in retirement.
