Ipswich ladies have finished their NVL season in 4th position, only 5 points off the play-off positions. Kev Abbott has served two years as Ipswich Ladies NVL coach, both seasons finishing in 4th position. Unfortunately with Kev recently becoming a Dad, time is becoming very stretched and he is unable to continue as ladies coach for Ipswich VC. Luckily for Ipswich Ladies Simon Browne has stepped forward to take on the ladies coaching.
Simon has previously played for Ipswich Mens team and has a long history of volleyball achievements, so the ladies will be in good hands for next season. Simon’s first fixture in charge of the team was on Wednesday 11th April against Chelmsford Ladies in the Essex league. The ladies were keen to make a good impression on Simon and worked hard.
Despite an injury setback to Michelle Abbott in the second set, the ladies pushed on and played some great volleyball to win the match 3 – 0. Iza Karwacka picking up another MVP for the ladies team as setter.
You can get a chance to see Simon Brown’s Ipswich Ladies team in action on Saturday 21st at 3pm against Brentwood at Northgate Sports Centre. Ipswich Men will be in action prior to this fixture at 1pm.
