After weeks of rumours around her future, former Celtic Dragons captain Sophie Morgan has exited the club, effective immediately.
Morgan posted on Twitter citing the extra workload as concerns as they clash with her job.
“It’s with a really heavy heart I have had to withdraw from Celtic Dragons this season. The extra training sessions recently added to the schedule with no additional support or leeway have made it impossible for me to continue due to my location and work commitments,” she said on Twitter.
In a statement released by Celtic Dragons, Director of Netball Tania Hoffman said the club and Morgan had come to terms.
“We are disappointed to confirm that Sophie has made the decision to remove herself from the Celtic Dragons due to the conflicting needs of her professional life and her role as a Celtic Dragons player,” she said.
“The challenges presented to us by the Coronavirus pandemic meant that we started the Superleague campaign without the level of preparation we would have ideally wanted. This meant the addition of extra training sessions – none of which Sophie was able to make herself available for.
“We want to thank Sophie for her commitment to the franchise and she will be missed for the remainder of the 2021 season. We wish her the very best as she looks to concentrate on growing her personal training business.”
