Pamela Asibie Cookey (born 2 September 1984 in Birmingham, West Midlands) is an English netball player, usually posted to goal attack (GA).

Club career[edit]

In domestic netball, Cookey has played with TeamBath in the Netball Superleague since the competition's inception in 2005, winning two titles in 2005–06 and 2008–09.[1] She also played in the Australasian ANZ Championship in 2009, signing with New Zealand franchise the Northern Mystics.[2]
Pam was announced as a Surrey Storm player joining ahead of the 2015 Super League season. This could see the playing partnership with Tamsin Greenway return once again.

International career[edit]

Cookey was a surprise inclusion in the England national netball team as a seventeen-year-old, for the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, but was unable to participate due to a knee injury.[3] She was also named in the team the following year, but withdrew due to study commitments at the University of Bath.[4]

She made her senior debut with England in 2004 against Australia, and two years later won a bronze medal with the England team at the 2006 Commonwealth Games.[1] She won a second Commonwealth Games bronze medal in 2010, and later that year won silver at the World Netball Series.

Personal life[edit]

Cookey is UK Soft Services (buildings facilities management) manager for the Airbus UK site in Filton, Bristol.[5]
