Fallaize has played for Guernsey throughout the age groups, from under-12s to seniors, and featured on Team Bath’s high performance programme while at university.

But this latest venture will see her helping deliver an exciting development plan formed by both Guernsey Netball and the Sports Commission.

Fallaize, daughter of former Muratti footballer Colin, hopes to move the sport forward at all levels, down to boosting numbers of U11s and looking at more accessible options like walking netball.

‘I’m really excited about helping netball get more people involved in the sport at all levels,’ she said.

‘There have been lots of positive conversations already and I’m really keen to encourage those who have never played to give it a go and to also attract people back into netball who may have played before but who have given up for whatever reason.

‘It’s a really exciting time for Guernsey netball, so it’s a great time for me to come on board and be part of the next positive steps. Netball has always been my main sport and I’ve had some amazing role models through Guernsey netball and I would really love to be part of someone else’s journey into the sport.’

Fallaize’s appointment comes hot on the heels after the naming of Mandy Hobart as boxing development officer, with the Sports Commission currently looking to fill an equivalent post for cycling.
