Emotional Night to End the Season

Paulton’s season came to a close on Saturday with their annual presentation evening. It was an emotional evening that encapsulated the clubs season – a mixture of joy and tears.

This season we were hit hard after we said goodbye to our beloved coach Stu, without him this club would not be the club we are. He gave us our passion, our spirit and our can do attitude – “there is no such thing as can’t ladies” He will be sadly missed not just by our club but by the netballing community. We will continue to play with his words ringing in our ears and next season we will make him prouder than ever before when we continue to expand our club and push for promotion.

This season our juniors performed outstandingly in tournaments finishing mid table, with our U11s finishing 3rd after the end of season friendly tournament. Next season we’ll be introducing an U16 and hope that all the girls will enjoy this next step towards senior matches. We would like to thank all our girls for playing this season and all the parents for their support – we are a unique club thanks to their support!

Our senior A Team enjoyed their first season in the Premier Division and battled well against strong competition finishing mid table despite injuries and illness causing a restructure of the squad just after they got into their stride. The B Team showed their usual grit and determination and pushed hard to improve on last seasons 5th place finish. Once again pregnancy, injury and illness effected the team but they still played with heart and finished mid table.

This summer we will be holding some “Back to Netball” sessions, this is a nationwide scheme aimed at providing a gentle introduction or reintroduction to netball for female players over sixteen years old. The first of these will start 15th June 19:00 at Paulton Rovers Football Club. Everyone is welcome.

Junior training will be back 7th September at 18:30, Senior training continues on a relaxed basis over the summer with selection starting in August. If you are interested in any of our up and coming events or would like to join us for training please get in touch via email: [email protected] or call Victoria: 07735507963/01761471448
