Wisbech Rookies Regional Squad finished their season on an exciting high, competing in the ever growing Bournemouth Sevens sport festival.

Rookies won 10 out of their 11 games. They met Peeks Netball Club in the final, the only team Rookies had lost to and with some clever positional changes Rookies stormed to a 12-5 victory to lift the Mojito Cup.

Playing in Division 2 of the Eastern Region, the team was hit hard at the start of a very difficult season with the three shooters being out with illness and injury.

With nine losses in a row and relegation looming, some hard work and commitment saw Rookies storm the last three matches with big wins. After finishing seventh in the league table they remain in Division 2 next season.

Player of the match awards went to Heidi Milton (5), Carmen Hannibal-Stewart (5), Bea McCormack (4), Lucy Penney (1).

Rookies Netball Club were awarded the ‘Outstanding Netball Club’ award for the east at the goalden globes awards and go onto the national finals in September.
