Rookies have four teams in the Wisbech Netball League, three of which are in the first division.

Rookies' regional team has had its finest-ever season with 11 wins and a draw out of 16 matches, gaining promotion next season to the East Regional Division One league.

Head coach, Andrea Eggleton, said: "This is a massive achievement for our club as we are competing against other sides based in large cities that have several teams in regional.

"We have also been fighting relegation the last two seasons, coming bottom of the table.

"The whole squad has been really dedicated to training and improving their fitness this last season as that had been our downfall previously.

"Our county team that play in the Cambs County Premier League have also had their best- ever season, getting into Division One after the first round of matches and then finishing sixth overall out of 14 teams, which is an amazing achievement as the last two seasons they have also been fighting relegation."

Also their under-16s won a place at the regional finals having come third in the county U16 clubs' finals. They had a great time at the tournament, winning one of their matches.

Rookies are also looking to expand their junior section and start a new development session, bidding to bring in more players.
