Club gets second head in 56 years

Sue Trew stepped up from vice-president after the death of the club�s founder and president Marj Williams last year.

Trew said while she did not plan to stay in the role as long as Williams � 55 years � she was looking forward to leading the club in another successful season.

City Beach�s division one team won the 2014 premiership and has been in the grand final for the past five years.

Division one player of five years Katie Lamb said she was confident of another successful season.

�We�re hoping to make it six years (in the grand final) in a row,� Lamb said.

�We�ve had some changes this season so it�s a bit of a new team, but I think we�ll do really well.�

Past and present club members gathered at The Wembley Hotel with Williams� family last Saturday to mark the new season.

Williams was a life member of the Perth Netball Association and her ashes will be scattered on the iconic rose garden that was retained when the new PNA facility was built.
