They were founded by Karen Watkins and Nikki Dunning earlier this year.

The ladies, very keen to grow this club, have recently applied for funding to get some more UK CC netball coaching qualifications and comply with the England Netball guide on safeguarding.

At present it is aimed at girls under 12-years-old.
