A junior netball club which has enjoyed tremendous success since it was formed three years is expanding.
This season, City of Ely Junior Netball is taking on 30 players aged 11–16.
The idea of a junior club was proposed in 2011. A year later, the first 20 junior players joined.
Some of those original players now feature for the adult teams. Three attended adult club trials and will be playing their netball in the first team squad.
The club’s under-14s and under-16s were in action at the County Junior Tournament at the weekend, facing some strong competition.
