SOLENT Netball Club have made a bright start in their new life in Division 1 of the Southampton Netball Winter League.
The club is third in the league after winning their last two matches, although they narrowly lost their season opener.
In their first match against Central Park, Solent lost 39-30, with Rachel Lawrence player of the match.
Their second game against Swan Centre Red saw a more settled Solent dominate throughout, winning 52-25, with Lorraine White player of the match.
Last weekend, they gained another win, this time against Winchester Thunder. In a tight, physical game, and with Lorraine and Christie-Lee Booth both suffering sprained ankles, Solent dug deep to take the win 43-40. Player of the match was Kelly Ross.
Solent now have a week off which will give injured players time to recover. The team is looking for sponsorship to help with league and travel expenses, and anyone interested in supporting them can call Chris Grimes on 07969504734 or visit www.solentnetballclub.org
Solent squad: Ross, Grimes, Siska, Marshall, Cowley, M. Booth, White, C-L. Booth, Cleary, Lawrence, Furmidge.
