Hovelands are jumping for joy after learning there’ll be no play offs for Hovelands and Claremont next weekend! Netball South West has confirmed that Hovelands and (Devon based) West Exe will automatically go through due to a lack of entries.
By way of explanation, a maximum of 3 teams from any single club can take part in the South West Regional League structure, so with Galmington competing in RL1 and now Trident and Hovelands both taking a spot in RL3, there was no opportunity for Claremont to enter the league 😢
A huge thank you to every Claremont player who was prepared to fly the GNC flag and increase our chances of retaining a 3rd team in the regional league - for now, stand down soldier!
Great news ahead of T R I A L S in June - GNC still have T H R E E Regional League squads on offer! Woo hoo!
