Queensland Firebirds, Romelda Aiken-George, goal shooter, Jamaica, superstar, contract, signing, deal, pregnant

Pregnant Queensland netball star Romelda Aiken-George has bombed the sport, saying the club is “too dangerous” and will not be offered a new Firebirds deal.

Three-time champion Aiken-George has missed the 2022 Super Netball after claiming she was pregnant.

Aikon-George, who does not have a contract until 2023, has stated on social media that she will not return to the club where she has played for the past 14 seasons.

“Okay, so a lot of people asked me if I would play for Firebirds next season, the answer is ‘no’,” she posted on social media.

“The decision is not mine, but the club. ‘They Say’ Very Dangerous’

“So I’m not in Firebirds next time.”

The 33-year-old initially indicated she would like to play during her pregnancy and reach the spectacular 200-game mark, but illness prevented her from taking the court and West O’Neill’s Wallace was called in to replace her.

At the time, Aikon-George said, “I look forward to going to court next year.”

Fox Netball has taken Kim Green to social media to throw her support behind Aikon-George.

“If this is the whole story, F is not enough from @FirebirdsQld,” she posted.

“Romelda has made that club what it is today and has won the Premier League for that club once. What a way to support a loyal player who is tied to 1000% of clubs in the world!”

Last month, Queensland Fireworks announced the signing of new deals with shooters Gretel Buta and Mia Stower.

In a dramatic move, Firebirds made a statement on Monday stating that they had not confirmed or denied that the Jamaican star had left Aiken-George.

Instead, Aikon Giorgis was honored at the club’s gala awards ceremony for 15 years, and the star goalkeeper said: .

“Netball Queensland is aware of the comments made by Queensland Firefighter Romelda Aiken-George and a recent social network post,” the statement said.

“Queensland Fireball 2023 playlist is not complete, the club is set to appoint a new head coach soon, and the remaining three contract players and coaching staff still need to be confirmed.”

The club added that the three signings of Bueta, Wallam and Stover have “formed a strong and secure alliance during the 2022 Suncorp Super Netball”.

Firefighters have completed the super netball finals only once.

Megan Anderson has resigned after the club finished sixth in the 2022 season and will remain without a head coach.

After the defender rejected a new contract, Firebirds lost Kim Jenner for the next season.

Jema Mi Mi and Ebony Usoro-Brown have confirmed their departure from the club.

Aikon Giorgis is expected to give birth next month. Queensland Fire Birds has two mothers on the list for 2023 – Gretel Buta and Kim Ravalien.
