Devils finished the season in fine form as they clinched the Gosport & Fareham League division three title.

The champions completed a memorable campaign with a 33-18 success over runners-up Gosport Borough TML.

Devils led from the start of the season and did not surrender top spot at any point.

Captain Helen Keet is over the moon with her troops and is looking forward to tackling division two.

She said: ‘This has been by far our best season.

‘It isn’t the first time we’ve taken the trophy but we are definitely stronger now and looking forward to new challenges.’

Devils welcomed goal-shooter Hannah Norbury, goal-keeper Jo Woodham and mid-court players Sam Brown and Beth Ringleberg this season.

Along with 14-year-old Jade Kennedy, the quartet have fitted in seamlessly with founding players Keet, mother-and-daughter trio Sue, Laura and Lesley Deadman/Muldowney.

Elsewhere, Wildcats had another very disappointing loss as they dropped to third and their promotion bid took a dent.

This time they went down by just two goals in a 31-29 defeat to Hotshots.

Hotshots’ Gemma Joyce showed her defending skills off, while giving Wildcats’ new goal-attack Dee Parker, a hard time.

Gosport Gators Gold are on a roll and they recorded a superb 38-26 win over T&A Trojans.

The Gators defence of Liz Hendrick and Tracey Neissen worked superbly together, making it tough for the Trojans shooters.

Relegation-threatened Fareham Zodiacs showed the young Gosport Gators Black experience counts with a stylish 53-32 win.

Shooter Ros Bellamy was on fine form, ably supported by Zodiacs captain Julie Barker.

There is still all to play for in division two with a couple of fixtures remaining.

Gosport Borough Avengers kept their cool to edge to a 43-38 win over Gosport Borough Stars.

Stars talent Olivia Lis was named best-and-fairest player again, with her defending skills second to none on court.

Antonios are fighting for the chance to stay up and beat Clifford Brown 46-24. It was all about the mid-court with Antonios centre Lou Courtney and Browns wing-defence Sarah Rennison taking the player awards on the night.

Blackjacks captain Annika Cole shot some superb goals but could not prevent a 44-30 defeat to Inovolt.

Martinis are aiming for division one and a 41-29 win against Jokers pushed them further up.
