England Netball

15/04/2018 – a date that will live long in the memories of the England Roses and fans – young and old, new and die-hard – across the country.

Helen Housby’s last-gasp goal saw England beat Australia 52-51 to claim Commonwealth Games gold and wrote these Roses players’ names into the nation’s sporting history.

But how can you keep following your favourite players?
