Wasps Netball have strengthened their coaching team with the addition of Mel Mansfield from league rivals Hertfordshire Mavericks.
Mansfield will act as assistant coach to the newly-created Wasps ahead of the new Vitality Netball Superleague season.
She will be reunited with Tamsin Greenway, who is Wasps’ director of netball and also acts as head coach. The pair previously spent four years together at Surrey Storm between 2009 and 2013, initially as player and coach, then as a coaching team.
Mansfield, who played for England from 1993 to 1998 and has over 14 years’ of coaching experience, said: “I am delighted to be back coaching with Tamsin again.
“We had a great partnership at Storm and created a culture and squad environment to be proud of.
“Choosing not to renew my contract with Mavericks was never going to be an easy decision or one I’d take lightly, but the opportunity to be reunited with Tamsin at a new and forward-thinking club like Wasps and build something from the ground up – just as we did together at Storm – was just too good to pass up.”
