National Finals Day 2017: Round Up

6th June 2017

Saturday 3rd June 2017

Oriam, Edinburgh

 

It's now Tuesday, National Finals Day was Saturday, and I am still buzzing off the atmosphere of the all the players, teams, volunteer and spectators created at what was one of our most exciting NFD events to date.  What a day!  We hope that everyone involved all had as great a day as the Netball Scotland staff did. 

 

Once again, I would like to acknowledge our partners Team Scotland for their support for this event as part of the Team Scotland Series, and a massive thank you must also go to the team of volunteers from the City of Edinburgh Netball Association and further afield who were on hand from early doors on Saturday morning and helped ensure the very smooth running of the day. 

 

Now on to the players – what a show they put on for us! With record numbers of engaged members and a couple of very close matches that had the crowd on the edge of their seats, we were delighted with the high level of netball on display from all of our teams.  Our official photographs from the day will be uploaded on to our Facebook page for viewing once they have been processed. No less than 5000 photos were taken on Saturday by our photographer, with so much action and excitement to capture, so please bear with us whilst we work through them all.

Once again, we enlisted the help of a special selection panel to watch each of our Scottish Cup matches and nominate a Player of the Match.  The panel was headed up by Lesley MacDonald, Netball Scotland’s Pathways Development Manager and Scotland Under 21s Head Coach.  All selections were carried out in line with our Make It Real player guidelines and the panel selected the following players:

 

Evelyn Beattie Quaich

Jenna Storie (Bellahouston)

Under 13 Scottish Youth Cup

India Duffy (Perth NC)

Under 15 Scottish Youth Cup

Anna Sherry (G84 Pressure)

Under 17 Scottish Youth Cup

Gillian Thomson (Avon)

Scottish Cup

Lynsey Gallagher (East Kilbride)

 

Well done to all of our players on the day, not just our winners – our National competitions continue to grow with each season and reaching the National Finals Day event is a huge achievement.  Now enjoy this “down time” between now and next season starting, when we look to do it all over again. 

 

Have a great summer!
