We had a fantastic opportunity to meet the incomparable Sharni Layton at an event hosted by Surrey Storm this week. Sharni has recently retired from netball and is now changing sports to Aussie Rules. She will be playing for the same club that she last played netball with – Collingwood Magpies. Sharni talked to us about her domestic and international career and her most recent struggle with depression. She was honest, funny and very down to earth, it was a great evening. The person that once said you shouldn’t meet your heroes has clearly never met Sharni Layton. Long may she continue to serve as a role model to all.
