The Queen’s Birthday Honours list has recognised Pulse Head Coach Robyn Broughton’s work in the netball community awarding her an ONZM (Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit).
“I am grateful that there are people in the community who felt my efforts in netball should be recognised,” explains Broughton.
Broughton was awarded an MNZM (Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit) in the 2004 New Year Honours List and has continued to work with players at all levels of netball.
She coached the Southern Sting from 1998 to 2007, winning seven National Bank Cup titles, before guiding the Southern Steel for four years and moving to the Pulse this year. She was also assistant coach of the Silver Ferns between 2000 and 2002.
“It’s a thrill to be recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours and especially to receive the award when I can share the honour with my players, my family and my friends in netball and in the wider community,” adds Broughton, whose Pulse team won an unprecedented third successive game on Sunday, defeating the Tactix in Christchurch 54-47.
