Twenty years after debuting at the National Provincial Netball Championships Jenny-May Coffin will end her playing career at the tournament in Rotorua this weekend.

The midcourter was recently named in the Southern Steel's preliminary squad for next year's ANZ Championship and is playing for Auckland-Waitakere at nationals.

Southern Steel chief executive Julie Paterson says she hopes to name a replacement for Coffin shortly as finalised squads had to be confirmed with Netball New Zealand by November 1.
