Well so far so good; I’m already 15 hours into “Dry January”... only 729 hours to go. Walk in the park...!
A short netball blog to start off 2016. I can’t wait for Grangetown Prem squad’s next home match on January 10—seems ages since I saw the girls out on court. I will be reporting on the rest of the season’s home fixtures, but I think it’s also high time I did a couple more Grangetown interviews.
I’ve already spoken with Vicky, Ria, Faye and Jenny, as well as two of our internationals, Gemma and Jan; so there are still plenty of potential victi... er... subjects for the next few months. This is therefore an open invitation to any members of the Prem squad (including up-and-coming juniors) to drop me a message if you want to have a half-hour (or so) chat that will I will then transform into an article which will be posted on this site and shared in whatever way possible to raise the profile of the club.
I was going to say “form an orderly queue”, but I think I’ll settle for “please get in touch....”
I am looking forward to continuing my unofficial arrangement with Netball Ireland, and will be catching up with Gen Slater and Trish Fanning in the not too distant future; and I definitely want to talk to our players who hail from north of the border as well (with permission from Netball Scotland).
From a fundraising point of view, there will be another twelve hour solo darts marathon (possibly in May), where I will be aiming to hit more 180s and raise more money than last year. I’m sure the venue will be The Cleveland again (thanks Gel x), and when a date is finalised, I will try to get some really good raffle/auction prizes—all I ask is that whenever the event is held, a few of you will come down to be part of the day (and enjoy a drink or two afterwards).
Well I think that’s all for now. Happy New Year and best wishes to everyone involved with Grangetown Netball Club.
