15 Jun Werribee legends honour loyal A-Grade captain
THE OXFORD Dictionary defines the word captain as someone who is the “leader of a team”, a “powerful and influential person in a particular field.”
Amanda O’Malley our captain lives up to that definition – an influential leader both on and off the court for many years.
A first time club captain in 2018, her ability to be an inspiration and constant support to her teammate is admired by all those around her.
Amanda leads by example playing every match in the same way – with skill, passion, determination and courage.
Today Amanda plays her 200th game for Werribee Centrals against Belmont at Galvin Park, so we have taken this opportunity to reflect on her outstanding career and congratulate Amanda on this milestone.
The Werribee Centrals family couldn’t be any prouder of how Amanda consistently goes about her netball and her commitment to the club over the last 10 years.
Sincerely, Nicole Weatherley
