Cup Finals 2019 - Prem Division

Bedford & District Netball League held their Cup Finals showcasing its talented players and teams of the season. Six exciting and close matches took place at the University of Bedfordshire which were well supported by their respective enthusiastic and vocal followers. Jo Brewster the England Netball Development Coach presented the trophies for the evening.

To round off the evening we were treated to the match between Premier Division league champions BCNC lst Choice and runners up Ampthill Amazons. Although league runners up Amazons had won the cup final trophy last year so were well up for the final. Choice, however, had other ideas and with the start being fast and furious they were the more disciplined and with some excellent shots from Abi Taylor found themselves 5 goals to 3 in the lead. Donna Lee responded well for Amazons to pull the score back level but with seconds to spare Choice took the first quarter by 6 goals to 5.

Amazons made a change in the second quarter with Kayleigh Jean coming off the subs bench and taking over as Goal Defence and that together with some superb shooting by Donna Lee gave them the edge.  Choice defenders Kerri Waldock and Sherma Joseph worked tirelessly but Amazons were on a roll and won the quarter 7 goals to 4.

In the third quarter Amazons were totally dominant – their defence was excellent and their shooting superb.  Choice battled hard but the quarter ender 8 goals 0 in favour of Amazons.

With nothing to lose Choice made lots of changes in the final quarter but Amazons were relentless going to 5 goals to 0 ahead by halfway through the quarter.  Choice battled on but all their opportunities were thwarted by Amazons with Kayleigh Jean on tremendous form.  Amazons ended the quarter 8 goals to 3 to the good and with that retained their trophy.  The umpires were Bern Palmer and Katie Sanders and player of the match went to Kayleigh Jean.

Lloyd Conaway, Director of Teams Beds and Luton, was on hand to present the trophies.
