MATCH REPORT: Frome Diamonds 42 Devizes 5th 6

Frome Netball Club Diamonds cruised past Devizes' fifth team to maintain their winning streak and go top of the table on goal difference.

Having formed good partnerships at both ends, Frome made sure a youthful Devizes side did not have an easy game as Janie Bullus and Emily Steeple worked brilliantly in the D, with quick passing helping to open up a 15-1 lead after the first quarter.

The outstanding partnership between Jess Read and Kathy Dredge worked well to prevent Devizes scoring a single goal in the second quarter, with Frome moving into a 24-1 lead at half-time.

Frome decided to mix up the positions as Hannah Dredge moved to GD and Andrea McCall moving to GS but this could not half the momentum as good interplay between Julie Merritt, Meg Crocker and Helen Maunder kept them on the attack, earning a 34-3 lead going into the final quarter.

Bullus switched to GK and Hannah Dredge to centre as Frome gave players the chance to try different positions while adding to their advantage.

The player of the match awards went to Emily Steeple and Andrea McCall.
