Merseyside Netball Team reaches new heights
MERSEYSIDE Police's all conquering
Netball Team have enjoyed an audience with the Chief Constable Andy Cooke and
Assistant Chief Constable Ian Critchley, on Wednesday, 19 September 2016.
The team, captained by Leanne Lloyd and Victoria Williams, brought home the
national Police Service UK (PSUK) Netball trophy from Nottingham earlier this
month, overcoming the hosts Nottinghamshire Police in the final. The trophy
takes centre stage in a cabinet already heaving with the European Corporate
Games, Liverpool League and Cup, Cheshire Elite and Lilly Cup.
The 2 day event saw Merseyside Police net 8 victories on their path to glory.
The B Team also marched to their silver cup final, only losing out to reigning
champions West Yorkshire in the final.
Captain Leanne Lloyd said:- "Both our teams had excellent weekends and
should be so proud of how they represented the force once again. After being
runners up in last year's final, we were so focussed on going 1 better this
year, and beating the hosts in their back yard makes the achievement all the
Chief Constable Andy Cooke said:- "The teamwork and sheer determination
our netball teams have shown has been inspirational to see, not only at the PSUK
tournament, but throughout the season. They are true ambassadors for the force,
playing to such a high standard, and doing all of this in their spare time."
