We have some very capable people in charge and hope that we can all take a break, recharge and come back bigger and better next year.” READ MORE: Boyd said she was grateful how the MDFL and MDNA were able to come together and work together in such a difficult time. “We also acknowledge the work of the MDFL Board and thank them for the way they have involved netball in their decision making. If nothing else, this season has been a big step forward in bridging the gap between our two codes,” she said.
