Congratulations to the Southerners Netball Crew!

It was great to see such a strong turn out for the BNL playoffs last night which paid off with both Southerners White & Southerners Black moving convincingly from semis through into the finals in both Division 1 & 2.

Southerners White played a dominating game in their semi final game against Londoner, defeating them comfortably before moving through to a very tight finals game against Soi 8. It was a finals game that remained action packed right through until the last couple of minutes and unfortunately Soi 8 pulled away to win by a mere 2 goals. The team should be proud of their outcome – great work on attack, strong defense and all round superb team effort!

Southerners White 20 – Soi 8 22 DIV 2 – RUNNERS UP!

Southerners Black played a strong game against NIST in their semi final game, moving comfortably through to a final against Transpo. A team who Southerners Black have confronted many a times, but each time the game is always fast and furious! This finals was to be Southerners game with a very strong approach in both attack and defense from the first whistle. Southerners dominated the second half of the game with strong passing and court work, to over turn Transpo possession on many occasions and come through with quite a score difference!

Southerners Black 28 – Transpo 11 DIV 1 – WINNERS!

Sadly, we farewell a number of players from our netball squad – Nicole Stanners, Karen Robson & Rach Wheaten – who will all be leaving very shortly. We wish them well in their new ventures and know they will be sadly missed on the netball court next season.

BNL Presentation Night will follow Songkran break – Hodgie & I will keep you informed of details and hope that you’re all able to make it along to celebrate a great netball season. All supporters are invited to join the Southerners netball crew in celebrating!

Thank you to you all for your commitment to Southerners Netball this season and we look forward to seeing you all on the court next season! We have new players joining us in Sept/ Oct for the 08/09 netball season – welcome PK, Laura and Georgie!

We will be emailing you all new season information once we have details from the BNL Committee.

Special thanks to:

• Amanda for your captaincy role with Southerners White.
• All who volunteered their time to referee games throughout the season – this is greatly appreciated and not always an easy job to do but trust me – it does get easier with practice!
• Supporters & Sponsors

Cheers Dee & Hodgie
