Netballer Scanlan calls it quits

A ruptured foot tendon has proven the final straw for Southern Steel defender Sheryl Scanlan, who will retire from netball after Saturday's trans-Tasman league match against the Melbourne Vixens.

Scanlan was first called into the Silver Ferns as a teenager in 1998, going on to play 61 tests between 2000 and 2009.

She was part of the New Zealand team that won silver at the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games, then went on to win the world championship title the following year over Australia.

Scanlan, 34, shifted south to the Steel in 2009, but has struggled with a range of injuries since, and is scheduled to undergo surgery on her damaged left foot.

Scanlan is shifting to Brisbane with husband Malcolm and six-year-old son Jafeth, and says she's keen to continue her involvement in netball off the court.
