Harpenden Netball Club took the Hertfordshire County Division One crown with a 54-20 win over Hertford Heath Rangers.

And they did it with two games to spare, having only lost one match all season.

They will now go on to represent Hertfordshire at the East Regional Play-off Tournament, to be held at Stanborough School in WGC on Sunday, May 13.

Captain Sarah Basford said: “It is such a fantastic achievement and I am incredibly proud of the entire squad.

“I would like to thank all of our umpires, scorers and supports for their incredible contribution to our success.”

The firsts are one of four teams run by the popular club.
