Lee-Jones To Depart Lightning

Sunshine Coast Lightning can today confirm that Annika Lee-Jones will depart the Club at season’s end.

Lee-Jones has been a valuable member of the Lightning squad over the past two seasons and has shown dedication to her craft, tenacity, and a true care for her teammates and those around her.

Lightning Head Coach Kylee Byrne took time to thank the defender for her service to the Club.

“We have thoroughly enjoyed having Anni as part of our Lightning family and we have seen the improvements and progressions in her game over the past two years,” Byrne said. 

“As with any elite athlete, with the commitment to training someone like Anni has given, it is important to be in a situation to be able to test your skills and knowledge out on court and we wish Anni every success as she chases those opportunities now.”

The Club would like to thank the goalkeeper for her contributions on and off court over the past two seasons and wish her well in future endeavours.
