Tracey Neville wants full-time England role

England netball coach Tracey Neville admits she would like to stay with the side on a permanent basis following their third-place finish at the World Cup.

Tracey Neville has insisted that she is the right person to coach the England netball team on a permanent basis after leading the side to the bronze medal at the World Cup.

The former England international took up a coaching role with the national side following their fourth-placed finish at last year's Commonwealth Games, and took over as head coach after Anna Mayes was dismissed in March.

The 38-year-old, who won a bronze medal at the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur for England, told BBC Sport: "I've had great support throughout this campaign. I feel like I have the knowledge to take this country forward.

"Going forward, whether it's with me or with another coach, I'll be 100% behind these girls."

Neville made her international debut in 1993, before retiring after struggling with a knee injury in 2008.
