Rob Hamilton business adviser: netballpost.com
After working as a nurse in Glasgow for some years, Rob moved to London as an IT consultant. He got interested in netball after a colleague asked in desperation if could play in a mixed netball team at lunchtime. When during his first game as Goal Keeper Rob asked what he should do, he was told to “jump up and down”; he did in a pair of deck shoes and later wondered why his knees hurt!
Rob soon caught the netball bug and started playing nearly every day either in the evening, lunchtime or both in London. He set up his own team called the Untouchables that quickly became champions of the LK Evening City league and took over the organisation of the City of London League, an 8 division league that plays at lunch times. He runs the www.netballpost.com team which is current top of division one in the Old Street league.
Rob is an A award umpire and past Middlesex umpiring secretary.
Alicia Cross Netball Consultant: netballpost.com
The Austrailian Alicia Cross (known as Scoot) started playing netball at the age of 6. Originally from a small town in South Australia, from age 14 her parents drove her 2 hours each way to Adelaide to play netball. Alicia played for Garville Netball Club playing at the top level for her age before switching clubs to the Adelaide Cougars who she represented at State League level (which is a higher level then the UK county level).
Whilst in the UK she worked with Premier Training to become a qualified Gym Instructor and Nutritional Adviser.
Currently playing for Cumberland Netball club in Camden London, she has never enjoyed her netball more. Whilst the netball is at a high level, a beer or glass of wine is standard after games. She also plays mixed social netball for MNA and fills in regularly in the London City leagues.
Alicia is currently working with Netballpost.com to increase the knowledge of netball in England and in Australia. She hopes to raise the profile with both men and woman, young and old as it is a fun and exciting game that is starting to receive the profile it deserves.
