Paige McCalla, Yasmin Hodge-England and Alanna Pullen have been named Premier League Players of the Season for 2022-23, while Linden have been crowned Club of the Season.
It was a closely fought campaign with titles on the line, promotion places up for grabs and battles near the bottom to avoid relegation still to play for on the final day of the competition.
Oldham Netball Club retained their Premier League 1 title crown, claiming title number 10, while Grangetown lifted the trophy in Premier League 2 and Eagles finished top of the nest in Premier League 3.
For the first time, some of the fixtures in the top level amateur competition in the country were live streamed as several teams worked in conjunction with live streaming platform Joymo as part of a pilot to broadcast their home fixtures themselves directly to fans.
572 players took to court over the course of the season with brilliant individual and collective skill on show, but McCalla, Hodge-England and Pullen stood out in particular to their opponents.
New Cambell star McCalla has taken the trophy in division one after being narrowly beaten by Darcy Griffin in last year’s Player of the Match votes.
In division two, Hodge-England has scooped the honour after helping The Downs gain promotion back to the top flight for the first time since 2016-17.
Ryland’s Pullen has been awarded the accolade for division three having finished second in the U19 NPL Player of the Season vote.
The winners have been chosen based on each league game’s Player of the Match Awards.
At the end of each game, both teams picked a Player of the Match from the opposition team. The winning team’s Player of the Match was awarded three points, and the losing team’s player received two points.
These scores were then tallied up across the season to determine the players with the most points in each league and trophy winners.
Meanwhile, Premier League 2 side Linden have been voted inaugural Club of the Season by their peers.
Introduced for 2022-23, the award celebrates the club for their off-court standards such as providing a high-quality home match experience and demonstrating good sportsmanship.
While there were nominations for a number of clubs, the Birmingham-based team, led by former Vitality Roses Assistant Coach Colette Thomson MBE, were clear winners.
Congratulations to Paige, Yasmin, Alanna and Linden, and thank you to all the teams for another fantastic season of competition! You can read more about how the final round unfolded here.
