The County Cup had previously been presented to a County team/squad for success or endeavour. Since we no longer have County squads, the Committee decided that, in future the Cup would be presented to a Middlesex County Club or team.
2019: A very long established Netball Club, this year’s winner supports several senior teams and has a growing junior section which is gaining respect among top teams in competitions. In order to support the development of the Club as a whole, members are actively encouraged to gain umpiring and/or coaching awards and experience, with considerable success. The Club is outward looking, arranging for external coaches to provide sessions, supporting those suitably qualified members to use their skill beyond their Club and local area and promoting grass root netball by organising an event for beginners, juniors and mums and dads! The wide view of the Club extends to having one of their members recently appointed as a non-executive Board Member of England Netball. Congratulations to Club of the Year, Old Fincunians, the County Cup winners for 2018-19.
