2022-23 Premier League Netball Season So Far

The 2022-23 Premier League reaches the halfway point this weekend (2-3 December) after a fast-paced and high-energy opening eight rounds. 

Over 200 players have taken to courts across the country to represent their teams with some of the fixtures live streamed for the first time this season in conjunction with Joymo. 

30 games have finished within five goals, 57% of home games have won and three have drawn.

Just two unbeaten records remain across the leagues with defending champions Oldham leading the way in Premier League 1 and newly-promoted Eagles out in front in Premier League 3. 

In their maiden top-flight campaign, Charnwood are making their mark in third while a single point separates the bottom four teams (last season’s PL2 runners-up Leeds Athletic, Turnford, Hucclecote and YWCA Bury) as it stands. 

Cumberland, who narrowly missed out on promotion by a single point in 2021-22, currently top the table in Premier League 2. 

Grangetown have their eyes on an immediate return to the top of the competition pyramid and lie second with six wins to their name. 

At the other end of the table, Sussex Thunder are still looking to secure their first win of the campaign after making the step up to the second tier. 

Like fellow Premier League 3 newcomers Eagles, Northants Storm have risen to the challenge after winning promotion in the play-offs and are in second place heading into Round Nine. They’re equal on points with last season’s third-placed side Norfolk United, who will be determined to finish in the top two this time around. 

After being relegated from Premier League 2 in 2021-22, Thoroughbreds and Ryland currently occupy ninth and eighth respectively, just in front of Leyton, but a lot can change over the remainder of the rounds.

Premier League 2 

Having been newly promoted to Prem 2, I think we can be pretty pleased with how we have started the season – although there’s a long way to go! So far it’s been great for us to experience playing against difference styles, new teams, a variety of umpires and having the opportunity to line up against some Super League players.  

Our partnership with the University of Exeter has been invaluable in supporting us to compete at this level and for our University players within the squad, the exposure at Prem 2 benefits the University netball 1st team playing in BUCS Premier South.  

As a squad our strength is definitely how we play together as team, and we hope to continue to improve our performances this season.  

We’re learning every game, enjoying the challenge and proud to be representing Devon in Prem.  

It has been a story of narrow defeats for Oaksway so far this season, with a series of tantalising losses by only a couple of goals. However, the home-grown squad are displaying great connections, this is probably due to 9 of their 12 usual squad players progressing through the ranks at the club from junior level to senior – something Oaksway is incredibly proud of.   

Captain Hollie Linighan stated in our recent North-East derby against Grangetown: “The game could have gone either way, right until the last 30 seconds. The home support from a packed Brierton Sports Centre was unreal!” The home venue proves to be a challenging arena for travelling teams.  

Coaches Lucy Clough and Beverly Linighan praised their players for showing excellent fight, commitment and squad ethos. They are looking forward to the rest of the season with their group of both experienced and very young players, with some under the age of 18.
