The national Goalden Globe Awards were held in Sheffield at the end of September with all regional winners being invited to attend the celebration event. A number of our regional winners made the trip to Sheffield to take part in what was perhaps the years’ biggest celebration of netball in the country.
We are very proud to say that two of our regional winners went on to win their national awards – beating off stiff competition from around the country. A huge congratulations goes to Gill Mason and Charlotte Rush who both proudly collected their awards at the event.
Gill Mason won the Muriel McNally Grassroots Award, in recognition of her continued hard work with Novos Netball Club. Gill is a well recognised member of the North East Netball family and for this to be recognised on a national level is outstanding – well done Gill!
Our other national winner was Charlotte Rush, who won the Grassroots Coach of the year award. Charlotte has worked extremely hard over the years and has seen the junior section of Wearside Wildcats double in size. Charlotte has since been nominated for further awards, and we would like to wish her the best of luck for these.
