Star shooter Kaylia Stanton ‘devastated’ not to be offered new contract at West Coast Fever

Shooter Kaylia Stanton says she is ‘absolutely devastated’ not to be offered a new contract at West Coast Fever for the 2021 season. 

The 26 year-old has been at the club since 2014 but will now be looking elsewhere in Suncorp Super Netball. 

She was also a member of the squad during two Grand Finals in 2018 and 2020. 

Stanton wrote on Instagram: “I am not going to sugar coat it, I’m absolutely devastated and completely shattered I won’t be a part of their 2021 plan. 

"I have been with Fever for 7 seasons and have been incredibly grateful for the opportunity to play with one club for such a long time. 2020 has definitely challenged me in so many ways. Nevertheless, I am incredibly lucky to be able to play the game I love.

“I’m not sure what’s on the horizon next but there’s still plenty of netball left in me. As they say, here if you need.”

Fever head coach Stacey Marinkovich added: "In her almost decade with the Club, Kaylia has been a valued member of West Coast Fever, and I have seen immense growth in her game during that time.

“Kaylia provided the team with great energy and passion, and this was an incredibly tough decision to make.”
