Grangetown Netball Club’s National Premier League 2 season gets underway this Sunday with a home fixture against Bromsgrove-based Ryland; and club captain Vicky Rees (pictured) is relishing the challenge.
“We’ve been working hard all summer to prepare for the new season and the girls are ready to take on Ryland, who have just been promoted to this league. It’s also our first match at the new Middlesbrough Sports Village and we are really excited to get onto the court.
“Netball New Zealand Coach Development Officer Linzi Filiata arrived in the country on Friday and she will be leading the team, along with our Head Coach Geraldine Williams. We’ll have a loyal group of supporters at the match, and we’re also delighted to be welcoming the current BDO world no.1 Glen Durrant, who is originally from Grangetown.
“We have a strong, fit squad, including Gemma Sole who represented Scotland in the recent world cup, and we will be looking to get the season off to a winning start.”
There is free parking at Middlesbrough Sports Village, which can be accessed from Ladgate Lane. The game starts at 12:30 and all supporters are welcome.
