The top brass of Netball Jamaica (NJ) met last night as discussions continue on ways to ease the uncertainty caused by the sudden resignation of co-coach Sasher-Gaye Henry.

President of NJ, Dr Paula Daley-Morris, first vice-president Tricia Robinson and other members of the executive attended the meeting. A release issued by Henry in which she sought to explain the reasons for her resignation was among the topics which were down to be discussed.

Henry, in her press release, denied that she resigned from the post because of her remuneration package.

"Contrary to media reports, I wish to indicate that my decision was not based on the remuneration for the job," she said. "There were two bases. One was related to the person needs of my family, which I regard as a priority at this time.

"The other is related to my increasing concerns about continuing professional weaknesses in the administration of the sport," Henry said.

Henry and Marvette Anderson, were named co-coaches of the Sunshine Girls following the resignation of Jermaine Allison-McCracken in July last year.

Since then the Sunshine Girls won bronze at last month's Commonwealth Games after defeating New Zealand 60-55. Henry and Anderson also guided the team to the silver medal at the World Fast5 Series in Australia in October last year.

Henry who resigned from the post last week, met with the Human Resource Committee of Netball Jamaica on Wednesday, but that meeting ended without any agreement on the way forward.
