PUBLISHED: 15:30 05 July 2018
Saffron Hawks impressed at the end of season Herts Mavericks tournament on Sunday.
England stars Sasha Corbin and Lindsay Keable looked on as two teams finished as runners-up and another took third on a hot day, following their awards night.
The under-15s played up as under-16s and were second to a Young Mavs development team, giving lots of hope for a national championship campaign next year.
The under-12s lost their first match against eventual champions Trafford, but won the rest of their fixtures with ease with a direct style and precision passing praised by spectators.
The under-14s finished behind Trafford and Mini Mavs after enjoying a number of fine wins of their own on the day.
To highlight the increasing popularity of netball, a couple of the Hawks matches were also filmed by ITV Anglia, with players and coaches being interviewed by reporters.
