Hornets capture Mary Finney trophy

HORNETS 1sts were the first winners of the inaugural Mary Finney Cup netball tournament which took place at Hampden Park on Saturday.

Mary passed away at the end of February and kindly made a donation to the Eastbourne Netball League.

The league decided to arrange the special tournament which will now be played each year in her memory.

Thirteen teams entered - two youth teams, Skylarks Revisited and 10 Eastbourne League teams.

It proved an entertaining event and there was a raffle at half-time, organsied by mary’s husband David. He then presented the Mary Finney Cup to Hornets, with Rockets runners-up. Winners of the Plate were Eastbourne I, Blackhawks A second.

The Eastbourne league is looking for sponsorship and can be contacted on sueivemy@hotmail.com
