Netball coach Gill Queripel believes that the confidence gained from the weekend’s victories over the Royal Navy will serve her Guernsey Panthers well in the coming weeks.

The Sarnians won six of seven matches played at Beau Sejour across the ages in their first home weekend since the club formed, including thumping 71-17 and 61-38 successes for the first team.

And with the strong possibility of the spectacle being repeated early next month with the potential visit of Kent Club to the island, Queripel is pleased with where things are heading before the inter-insulars.

‘It was a great weekend for us in terms of both the performances and also for the chance to play in front of big home crowds,’ she said.
