2018-2019 Winners

Congratulations to Marney Ross-Johnson – reasons for award – outstanding achievements and captaincy

This award is in recognition of several things: Marney’s excellent captaining for 2 seasons throughout her GCSE studies, her amazing achievements in her selection for the senior A team and the under 21 England Nets squad and for her supportiveness towards other Roundwood teams and players. For the last 2 netball seasons Marney has volunteered to be a captain. Two seasons ago she stepped up to be the D team captain and last season she was moved up to the C team and still volunteered to be a captain. She has been a fantastic leader, organising her team weekly for fixtures and ensuring that all players can get the maximum amount of time on the court each week. Last season, our C team had their most successful season in 8 years (winning one league and finishing 3rd in the other) and this is down to Marney’s excellent leadership and relationships with her team mates. This season she has now been moved up again, but not just one team, two! She has now made it into the club’s regional side and for someone of her age this is a fantastic achievement. She has made an excellent start to the season and is making her mark on the court. Marney should also receive recognition for her achievement of a place in the under 21 England Nets squad, which again for someone who is only 16 years of age (17 now) is a phenomenal achievement. Finally, Marney was nominated for being supportive to all other club members during training, and other teams on match days. She is a warm and welcoming player. Marney is a true Roundwood Netball Club girl.
