Sunshine Girl Aiken named ambassador for Motorama Ford

By July 24, 2019

Jamaica’s Sunshine Girl Romelda Aiken is now a brand ambassador for Motorama Ford in Queensland, Australia.

The 30-year-old goal shoot has played for the Queensland Firebirds in the ANZ Championship since 2008 leading them to titles in 2011 and 2015. She was the league MVP in 2008 and 2009. She has been representing Jamaica since 2005.

In 2014, Aiken became the first player to score 3500 goals in the ANZ Championships.

Her impact on the league in the past 11 years has made one of the most popular players in world netball.

It is among the reasons why Motorama Ford invited her on board.

“Motorama Ford is very excited to introduce Netball Superstar, Romelda Aiken, to our family as our new ambassador!” the dealership said in a statement.

“Romelda Aiken is currently the Queensland Firebirds star goal shooter, debuting for the Firebirds back in 2008. Romelda is also an international netball player, representing her home country, Jamaica, in the Commonwealth Games and the Netball World Championships.

“Romelda stands at a great 1.96m tall and still fits perfectly into our Ford Focus Titanium! We are so excited to see what Romelda Aiken can bring to our Ford brand and look forward to working closely with her.”

    Robinson is replacing Dr Paula Daley-Morris, who spent the last four years in office, is the outgoing president and should have been replaced from last December but the organization was unable to find a quorum and was also delayed by the absence of a financial statement.

    Robinson comes into an organization with many problems, as Dr Daley-Morris’ tenure was frought with fighting among administrators.

    At the AGM on Saturday, senior team coach Sasher-Gaye Henry was the most vocal of the high-profile members in pointing out to the new boss that there was much work to do.

    According to Henry, it is disappointing to see how ‘rundown’ the sport had become in Jamaica.

    Robinson will lead a board that includes Simone Forbes, Karlene Waugh, Jennifer Headlam, Keyan Murdock, Wayne Shaw, Leonie Phinn, Denise Wisdom, and Janet Johnson-Haughton.
