Despite losing their final game 36-31 against Jets, Royston Netball Club achieved finished second in the Cambridge County League,
It was their highest placing ever, and they only narrowly missed out on the top spot.
The season saw a great team effort, the defensive team of Jo Moxham, Anna Pinner, Jackie Huttlestone and Emma Highton proved difficult to beat.
The attacking unit of Natalie Williams, Karen Hume, Carol Parcel, Tracy Stimpson and Emma Kelly provided one of the league's toughest offences.
With a depleted team against Jets, Royston rushed into a five goal lead thanks to some good shooting from Kelly and Stimpson, before Jets recovered to lead 10-8 going into the final break.
The second and third quarters saw some great defending from Jo Moxham and Anna Pinner, but despite their efforts Royston went into the final period down by six, and they were only able to reduce the arrears by one in the last quarter.
