The Chesterfield Cath Askwith Award

During the Autumn 2012 season we decided to introduce The Portland Trophy as donated by Steve Portland of Portland Trophies.. This award is to recognize sportsmanship, fairness and professionalism in relation to individuals and teams based on how they present themselves to others. In other words, players that are a credit to the great game of netball.

This award was renamed The Cath Askwith Award in memory of our great friend who passed away in June 2017. Cath absolutely loved netball and had played, umpired and then ran our Chesterfield League and as such had always been very heavily involved. She was a huge character and we will miss her. This award will take her with us throughout the coming netball seasons. It was a great privilege to be able to give the award to its first owner Mrs Lesley Athorn - Mico. Lesley and Cath have been netball mates for years, Lesley is a fantastic netballer and a brilliant umpire, she also looks after all of us in her kind and thoughtful manner. Cath, would be chuffed to bits.
