Share the News

The Port Moresby Netball Association went into finals over the weekend.

Credit Corp Sparrows club saw 7 of their teams vie for a grand final win, out of the 9 registered teams.

Only their premiere team ended this season on top, when they forfeited the Mermaids.

While the other six fell short of taking out this year’s title, finishing second on the POM Netball ranks.

In a brief report presented to their major sponsor, Credit Corp yesterday, Club President Lawrence Lahari spoke of the club’s success this year.

While thanking Credit Corp for being their major sponsor, President Lahari also made mention of the specific teams that battled in last weekend’s finals.

“Our U10s, U13s, U15s along with the A and B grades and the premiers made played in the grand final except for the U21s who missed out,” he added.

For the last two years, the yearly K25,000 has covered expenses such as uniforms, travel expenses and court fees.

Accommodating a wide range of talent ranging from young 7 year olds who play in the under 10 division to senior women, the club also has some national representatives in the likes of Courtney Abel and Nerita Adula.

And with the financial assistance from Credit Corp, the club maintains its strong presence as Miline Bay-based Abel and Lae-based Adula were flown in for their matches, a step forward for the club, as they continue to encourage talent growth in the sport.

In reception of the Sparrows yearly summary report, Credit Corp Group CEO Tor Bowen also made known the extension of their sponsorship.

Bowen said “to have all 7 of the 9 teams in the finals is a terrific result and we would like to extend our sponsorship for another two years”.

With the extension of the sponsorship, Sparrows now look at coming back stronger next year, though all six Sparrows teams finished off as first runner-ups, while their Premiere Division took out the title for this season.
