Emily McBride, Sally Freeman and Naomi Harding (Abbeymeads)
Joseph Killick and Ayren Walker (Raychem)
Adele Skinner (Ferndale)
Jade and Emmy Dunphy (Croft )
Bryony Lockett (Purton)
Phoebe Allsop and Kate Dawson (Lawn)

These Learner Umpires are now able to umpire games in division 5 and will be supported/mentored as they start on their umpiring journey. Well done everyone.
A big thank you goes to all the players participating in the "Netball Now sessions over the past few weeks. These sessions have proved extremely enjoyable and popular and have been a tremendous help to our newbie Learners in their first steps into the world of Team White. The games were played in good spirits and the Learners experienced a lot of different styles of play and gained experience, confidence and knowledge. Thank you players.
Also, thank you to Pat Salter for tutoring the course and to Maria Bailey, Claire Daly, Christina Davidson and Kelly Allen, all of whom gave up their time to mentor the Learners and provide excellent support for Pat in delivering the course.
