Another promotion for Frampton Cotterell Netball Club

Frampton Cotterell netball club continue to go from strength to strength, with our first team securing another promotion this season into Division 4, writes Jo Clark.

At the start of the season we introduced several new players who have fitted straight into our winning ways. Amy Warren and Leah Hemmings who have not only brought experience to the team but played vital roles in securing our promotion.

Our attack this year remained solid with Emily Dible, Sasha Lacey, Jazz Bartlett and Jess leak continuing to secure win after win! This task couldn’t have been achieved without the help of our defensive unit of Teresa Chadwick, Kelli Cately, Saskia Dracup, Anna Keir and Helen Long.

With a new season just around the corner, Frampton first team, above, are ready for the challenge ahead and cannot wait to enter Division 4!

The second team kept strong throughout the season securing their place in Division 8. During the season they faced injuries but the squad pulled together, Lucy Buckley was captain and led the team through those challenging games along with our vice Trina Dickason, our scores didn’t always reflect on the outstanding team work as we had to play in some torrential conditions and decisions on the day was made to support the game and the squad pulled together with or without a win.
