“Both teams have excelled this year under the coaching of Charlotte Sixsmith and Hayley Watson. The fantastic fitness levels have showed across the four College teams (two evening league) this year.

“Such has been the hunger to play netball from college students, there has seen to be a need to start a third team also that acts as a development squad for the first and second teams.

“This alongside the success of the girls football it has really been a great year for the ladies teams at S6F.
