Wales Netball have paid tribute following the death of former team manager Donna Crossman.

Their statement said she had died “following a tragic accident on Sunday evening.”

Crossman served as the team manager for Wales and Celtic Dragons between 2014 and 2018 and took on the same role with South East Blaze in the National League last year.

She also had a notable career in Welsh rugby, having been appointed as Wales Women’s team manager in 2008.

Wales Netball Chair Catherine Lewis described Crossman as a “fabulous, caring individual, always looking to support and help others.”

“Netball in Wales is a better place for having Donna as part of its family. Donna was very much loved and will be missed,” said Lewis.

“Our thoughts and condolences are with Donna’s family, friends, and all those whose lives she touched.”

Former Wales and Dragons captain Suzy Drane paid her own tribute on X, posting: “Extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Donna, an all round great person & fantastic TM.

“She was thoughtful, compassionate, wise & cared greatly for the players. I’m very grateful for her support personally & professionally.”
