An exciting announcement for Newfield as plans to sponsor the Manx Senior league are finalised. Wi The sponsorship, which includes the support of 35 teams in four separate divisions, has been agreed for the remaining 2017-18 and the 2018-19 season. The netball season runs from September to April each year, and involves weekly league games plus a Cup, Plate and Vase competition. Newfield’s funding will be used for competition costs and to support the umpires, new and current, by running development sessions and courses and providing kit. It is also hoped that an experienced umpire will become accredited as an Officiating Tutor, enabling Manx Netball Association to run its own umpiring courses.The funds will go a long way in making sure that the netball league has the relevant resources and capabilities for weekly matches and competitions.
