“Hi My name is Jean Davies and I currently work for England Netball as a Performance Pathway Coach, heading up the Regional Academy in Truro Cornwall. I am also a National Selector for the National Academy age groups

Both these roles have come through my involvement in Development and Performance Netball. I helped to set up the Development programme in Cornwall which has produced lots of talented players, most notably Jo Binns(Vann) who has represented both England and Team Bath Superleague Squads. I have also coached England U17 and U19s and Team Bath Squads.

I sit on the SW League committee, with particular interest in developing the quality of competition, for U16 and U14 Club sides. I am currently Head Coach of Saints Netball Cornwall which has many successful senior and junior teams. Saints have been SW Club of the Year twice and was England Netball Outstanding Club of the Year in 2013.

My passion for netball comes  from my own experiences playing school netball in Cheshire and representative opportunities playing for Cornwall and the West Region. It has been an absolute pleasure to identify and work with the talented players in the South West and I am passionate about helping England, in any small way, become No 1 in the world.”
