England appoint Tracey Neville permanently

Tracey Neville signs a four-year contract to coach the England netball team up until the next World Cup.

Tracey Neville has signed a permanent contract to coach the England netball team.

The 38-year-old initially took up the post on an interim basis in June.

However, having guided the team to third place at the recent World Cup in Australia, Neville has been handed a four-year deal.

"We are very pleased that Tracey has confirmed that she will stay on and lead England into our next four-year cycle, culminating in the next World Cup to be staged on home soil in Liverpool," chief executive Jo Adams said in a statement.

"The excellent result in clinching the bronze medal in Australia has set a platform on which we are able to build upon to reach our target of becoming world champions."

Neville, who is the sister of former Manchester United and England footballers Gary and Phil, was part of the England side that won bronze at the Commonwealth Games in 1998.
