West Wales Summer League 2018

On Monday 16 July, the final round of the West Wales Summer League took place. The league featured two divisions: Performance and Development and saw a number of West Wales teams go head-to-head for summer honours. 

In the Performance division, Tenby Sapphires took first place after a tense final league match against Chaos which they won by a narrow margin of two goals. Chaos, along with Carmarthen Tywi were therefore runners-up in the division. Credit must go to Carmarthen Tywi who scored the most goals and had the best average, whilst the Sapphires had the best defensive stats.

Meanwhile in the Development division, Carmarthen Pibwr won the league (8 wins from 8 games) with Chaos’ development side placing as runners-up once again. Impressively, Carmarthen Pibwr scored the most goals, conceded the fewest and recorded the highest goal average in winning the division.

The league also had a focus on progressing umpires with Jen Smith, Jan Warner, Nikki Howells and Jess Totterdale mentoring umpires. The league also saw three new umpries qualify with their C Award: Jana Newman, Rebecca Dickson and Sarah Beyond. We would like to thank Christie Roberts and Claire Williams who facilitated this as assessors.

Hannah Pick, Mid & West Wales Netball Development Officer shared her appreciation to all who made the league possible. She said: “A big thank you to all involved from the players to coaches to umpires and more. The league is yet again a big success for the region and hopefully next year we can progress again.

She added: “As well as congratulating Tenby Sapphires and Carmarthen Pibwr on winning their divisions, I would like to congratulate our three newly qualified C umpires.”
