SSNL Committee Members and contact details

League Chairperson - Sue Townend

This is my third year as Chairperson and I am looking forward to a successful, safe and competitive 2018/19 season. I am very grateful to the committee members who volunteer their time to keep the league running as smoothly as possible and help support the growth of the SSNL.

 I am also Chair and player for Ipswich Storm that have teams in division 2 and 5.  I have completed the INTO umpiring course so will be looking to gain some experience this year with the aim to progress on to my C award.

League Secretary - Nikki Timmis

This is my second season as League Secretary and although it is a challenging role I love it.  

This season has been frustrating for me as I can't play due to injury, when I do play I play for Orwell 2 in Division 3 and I am also a 'C' Umpire.

I have recently started a junior team in Felixstowe with Shaz Cullen (who I'm sure you will all remember) and we are loving every second of it.  If you see me on the court, come and say hi!

When I'm not on the netball court, I am mum to Freya.

League Venue Fixture Coordinator - Yvonne Cook

This will be my fourth year as Northgate Fixture Coordinator so, ladies get your thinking caps on as I should officially move over and let someone else fill this role next year.  I really enjoy the work and it is not a taxing position at all.

 I know the information on the site does not show it but I was also Treasurer for two years, another very easy and enjoyable role.  Happily, someone else has now taken over this position and I am going over to Civil Service to help take some of the burden off other very busy people who run the club.

 It is my intention to decrease my umpiring but, you might just see me doing the odd game. So say hi!

Division 1 Secretary - Laura Stiff

I am Divisional Secretary for Division One. This is my fourth season as Secretary, one which I enjoy and is important to the continuing success of the league. I run and play for 'Vixens' who currently compete in Division Two. I am also an umpire. 

I live and work in Ipswich and outside of netball, like spending time with friends and family. 

I like to think that I have met a lot of players, coaches and umpires out and about over the years, but if you do ever see me on court and have any questions, dont hesitate to pop over for a chat!

Division 2 Secretary - Kirsty Seymour-Croney

I am the Divisional Secretary for Division Two. For those of you that don't know me I am a qualified C umpire and currently play for Ipswich Meerkats in division 4. I have been playing with Meerkats for 5 years now and previously to that I played for HN Gems back in the day before heading off to university! Alongside all this netball I am a Lecturer, Assessor and Curriculum Coordinator of Sport at Suffolk New College, a sessional coach for Suffolk Positive Futures running multi-sport sessions for girls and a coordinator for a weekly Back to Netball league run through Play Netball, so my days, evenings and weekends are pretty full up!

This is my first year on the committee as a divisional secretary.

I have played netball through primary and secondary school before playing for a team called Debenham Angels. I joined at the age of 16 and still play for them now, we are currently in division 2.

I live and work in a school in Ipswich where I am a PE Coach, I also coach years 3/4 and 5/6 high five netball.

Division 5 Secretary - Marie Lightbody

South Suffolk Netball League Division 6 Secretary - Harriet Osborne

Division 6 Secretary - Katie Heffer

This is my 2nd year on the committee as a Divisional Secretary. I played netball through Primary School, Secondary School and University, where I then took a 10 year break before playing again and joining Allsorts (Now Kesgrave Cobras) 5 years ago. I also umpire up to Division 4 and am currently working towards my 'C' qualification.

When not netballing, I am Head of Drama at a local High School where I also coach the Year 7 Netball team. 

Juniors Secretary Division 1 - Karen Purbrick

Juniors Secretary Division 2- Louise Symons

Hi my name's Louise and this is my first year on the committee.  I have been involved in netball since school and have played at a high competitive level until an ankle injury put paid to my netball career in my twenties. 15 years later I then went into coaching and I formed Stowmarkers Netball Club whereby I've not looked back since.  With a keen eye on development and encouraging young girls into the sport at a young age being appointed as the junior division 2 secretary is perfect. I am looking forward to seeing what this coming season will bring.
