England's Tracey Neville hopes to share experiences with brother Phil

Phil Neville was named as manager of England's women's team in January.

England netball coach Tracey Neville hopes to share knowledge with her twin brother, Phil, now that he has been named the manager of England's women's national team.

The siblings have barely spoken since Phil was appointed in January because of his team's involvement in the SheBelieves Cup and the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

"I think it's a conversation that we will have when we can find at least 10 minutes to sit down, but we're not [just] coaches, we're brother and sister," Tracey Neville said.

England's netball coach since 2015, Neville has worked informally with Football Association coaches in the past and hopes the relationship continues.

"I do think within invasion sports, there's an important crossover," she said. "And if you can learn from other sports and other coaches, it's one of the greatest experiences you can have to make you better in your job."

Phil Neville's hiring was met with surprise by many given his lack of experience and he immediately had to deny he is sexist, apologising for posts he made on social media that were derogatory to women.

Gary Neville, the siblings's older brother, played alongside Phil with Manchester United and England.

While international honours proved elusive for her brothers, Tracey won bronze in netball at the Commonwealth Games in 1998.
