The 2019 The League Award Winners are,

The League - Criteria for The Team of the Year Award. For the teams who have gone from strength to strength, showing determination, having a positive outlook and demonstrating excellent teamwork.

This ethos runs through The League in spades. Sportsmanship is key and this team has it. They are positive and determined but caring on court. They love the game, they want to win (and do) but want to enjoy their Netball as well..sometimes we forget to have a good time.. This team has a good time and a great team spirit and it shows. This team is Abbey Allstars.

The League - Criteria for Player of the Year Award.

For the player who has been key to their team, standing out as a skillful netball player, showing talent on court and being an advocate for our sport.

The winner of this amazing award is quietly competitive, a seriously skilled Netball grafter, a credit to her team and Netball in general. She also keeps winning lots of Player of the Season Awards. The girl who can, will and does isss Vikki Village of Team Shooters.

The Inspirational Keisha Ferrigon Award

This years winners are an old team! They have been together a long time and continue to play at a goood standard. They have been around, seen it and done it. This also means in the changing world of Netball that they have adjusted and adapted. They are efficient and well organised and go quietly about their business. They join in with all things netball, tournaments and other leagues, which shows their love and passion for our great game. The Inspirational Keisha Award for 2019 goes to the very fabulous..Team DHL.

The Cath Askwith 'Spirit of Netball' Award.

The winners for this year are a great set of girls who ‘bring it’ We all know when we have played them, theyare competitive with great visible sportsmanship. They have been together a long time and have a great team spirit, a great netball attitude and are very good at what they do. They were also part of Cath’s era and knew her well. Cath would be thrilled to bits to give this award to Team Jesters. She knew and loved the whole team and like us, can see the Jesters ‘Spirit of Netball’

Umpire of the Year Award 2018/19.

We at The League have a feeling the winner of this award may be a certain Mrs Barbara Needham.

A few words from us..

Barbara is a 'Glass of Glitter' (her saying) She is the fairest, most hard working, intelligent and caring umpire (and person) but the best bit is she brings brilliant umpiring, fun, zanyness and crackpotness to her games. Who could ask for more. .She has had a bugger of a year..but who would know? She carried on regardless, she looked after us!! Barbara has the essence of netball going on..She is the special one, she is without doubt, as voted by all - The Umpire of the Year.

To The League Players, The League Captains, The League Umpires, The Organisers and all attendees of our Netball Awards 2019 Night.

The Awards Night draws near. Party, celebration and recognition for our regions netballers, organisers, umpires and a special mention from me to all our team captains. Team captains work hard and are a special netball glue that keeps us all together, that and they appear to be very organised individuals who half the time could be running the country.

It would give me great pleasure to announce The Leagues Nominations are ALLLL the team Captains!! But apparently I'm not allowed to do that. It could possibly be a little much on the trophy front, so I adhere to the rules.

Fizzy 'O's
