The Koroit premiership player joins the Warrnambool and District Football Netball League as one of the top defenders in the region.

O’Keefe said the decision to cross to Panmure was made last month, shortly after the couple’s honeymoon to Thailand.

“I just thought I’d be the supportive wife and give it a go,” she said.

“I will be able to play netball and (then) watch Simon.

“The club has been really welcoming. It’s the same sort of club as Koroit. It’s a country town and everyone knows everyone.”

Husband Simon, who was a joint winner of Hampden league’s Maskell Medal last year, farewelled Koroit in October for a senior coaching role at Panmure.

Jumping at the opportunity, Bulldogs A grade netball coach Mandy Condon approached O’Keefe to follow suit.

O’Keefe said she would miss the tight-knit Koroit brigade, which is largely responsible for her development as a top defender, but was ready for the new challenge.

“Koroit has been a great club for me and I will stay in touch with all of the girls,” she said.

“(But) the District league is getting stronger in both football and netball. I think the competition will be nearly as strong.”

The 22-year-old has been training with Panmure for about a month, shuffling between the goal defence and goal keeper positions.

O’Keefe is also clocking extra time on the court with Hampden White in the Western Regional State League open division, which continues tonight.

After missing two weeks of the competition while on her honeymoon, the orthopaedic surgeon receptionist is returning to full fitness.

“I’m slowly getting back on track,” O’Keefe said.

“I enjoy state league (and) I take it seriously. Last year I played in the Hampden Blue team that went all the way to the (Premiers Challenge).”

Third-placed Hampden White has dropped just one game for the season and faces ladder-leader Hampden Green tonight at 9.15pm at the Warrnambool Stadium.

“They haven’t lost a game, so it’s going to be tough,” O’Keefe said.

“But it should be a really good game.”

In other open matches tonight, second-placed Port Fairy battles Cobden and District Night Netball Association, fourth-ranked Warrnambool and District Yellow plays South West District and Camperdown faces Warrnambool and District White.

In 17 and under action, top side Hampden Green confronts Hampden Red, Colac and District plays Warrnambool City, Hampden White meets Western Border and South West District challenges Warrnambool and District.
