Northern Inland ready for State League

It’s been an action packed netball extravaganza in regional New South Wales of late, and it does not look like slowing down any time soon with the 2014 GrainCorp Regional State League – Northern Inland competition starting this weekend!

Twelve teams representing seven local Associations will descend on Narrabri Netball Association this Sunday 27 July for the first day’s play, with games starting from 9:30am across two divisions.

The teams will then participate in two more round robin days, before the top four of each division goes through to the Finals Day on Sunday 31 August.

Netball NSW Regional Coordinator – Northern Inland Monique Smith said there was plenty of excitement buzzing around the region heading into the opening day of competition.

“It’s very exciting that State League netball is back for another year in Northern Inland.  Previous seasons have always been tightly contested, and I have no doubt that will continue in 2014,” Smith said.

“It seems only yesterday we were celebrating our 2013 Champions Glen Innes (Division One) and Tamworth (Division Two), and I can’t wait to see what’s in store this season.

“Once again we’d like to thank our Major Event Partner GrainCorp for their continued support of regional netball.  They’ve been an amazing friend to the Northern Inland region and we are so happy they are on board with us again this year.

“It should be a fantastic 2014 GrainCorp Regional State League – Northern Inland season, and I look forward to seeing all the players, coaches, umpires and spectators in action over the coming month,” Smith concluded.

If you’re in the Northern Inland region, make sure you get to down to your local day to watch some of the best and brightest netballing talent in the region go head-to-head looking to be crowned the 2014 GrainCorp Regional State League – Northern Inland Champion!
