The Goalden Globe Awards will be celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2014 and England Netball are pleased to announce that nominations are now open!
The deadline for nominations is 1st May 2014 - at which point a Regional Selection panel will chose the South West winners.
Please can you circulate this information to your contacts - last year we had a fantastic response and had over 40 nominations from across the region.
The South West winners will be announced at the South West Goalden Globe Awards which are due to be held on Sunday 6th July 2014 (Venue/Times TBC). The regional winner of each category will then be invited to the National Goalden Globe Awards in September 2014.
Remember - anyone and everyone can make a nomination!
As you should already be aware, the deadline for any coaches with an 'old' England Netball Level 2 to convert their Award to a UKCC Level 2 qualification (via the Conversion course) is 31st March 2015!
This deadline is getting closer (particularly when you consider the South West currently only has one confirmed course between now and then), so with this in mind, please can you ensure that you pass this information on to any coaches with an old England Netball Level 2 who intend to continue coaching past the deadline.
It was a successful weekend for Gloucestershire teams at the NSW Regional Under 14 Finals tournament, held at the Plymouth Life Centre on Sunday 6th April.
With the 8 top teams from around the south west region competing in a round-robin format, Hucclecote finished unbeaten against some strong opposition, most notably from Saints (Cornwall) and Team Jets (Jersey), who eventually finished as runners-up.
Old Chelts finished the day a very creditable 4th place, winning three of their games.
Hucclecote now play in the National finals in Sheffield on May 10th and 11th. Good luck girls!
