Fowlers Cup a suc­cess

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SEVEN Dou­glas Netball As­so­ci­a­tion teams trav­elled to Ma­reeba to com­pete in the 2017 Fowlers Cup. The play­ers rep­re­sented the as­so­ci­a­tion ex­cep­tion­ally well, not only com­ing away with great re­sults and dis­play­ing com­mend­able ath­letic prin­ci­ple on court but also ex­hibit­ing out­stand­ing be­hav­iour and ded­i­ca­tion to the game off court.

Spe­cial men­tion to the Di­vi­sion 1 ladies team who put in a tremen­dous ef­fort. The com­pe­ti­tion was fierce!

Thanks go to the many par­ents, play­ers, vol­un­teer coaches, um­pires and scor­ers, who were there to help out over the week­end and who tire­lessly as­sist with the on go­ing suc­cess of Dou­glas Netball As­so­ci­a­tion. Your sup­port is im­mensely ap­pre­ci­ated!

What a show­case for the tal­ented and ded­i­cated netball play­ers of the Dou­glas re­gion!
