Army Netball Dominates Inter Services... Again

The Army team, boosted by professional players like Ellie Nawale and Dee Bolakoro, retained their title.

The Army have been crowned Inter Services Netball Champions for the third year in a row.

In a tournament held at RAF Cosford, the holders defeated both the Navy and the Air Force in successive games to win the title.

For the hosts, it is now eight years since they have won the championships.

The Army had Celtic Dragons pair Ellie Nawale and Dee Bolakoro in their squad and dominated the tournament after a 50-21 victory over the Navy and a 61-16 win against the RAF.

The RAF had some bright moments, with attacking player Ashleigh Davies impressing after coming off the bench in the first quarter against the Army.

The tournament also served as a chance for UK Armed Forces selectors to take a final look at possible squad members.

The UKAF team was announced at the end of the Inter Services Championships with Nawale, Bolakoro and Davies all included.

After the event, Nawale was in celebratory mood with her Twitter post.
