WE are asking sports clubs for their ‘club heroes’ - whether that’s club members who are working for the NHS or essential services, or those unsung heroes who have contributed so much to the club over the years.

Sydenham Netball Club highlighted its three NHS workers - Laura Coombes and Hannah Wallis are both paramedics, and Beth Fella works as a mental health nurse.

Sydenham NC has several key workers, too, and the club said “you are all doing a fantastic job on the frontline and our heartfelt thanks goes out to you all”.

The club also hailed the hard work of Lynne Cornish, Sandy Hocking and Adele Ranford, who have more than 50 years’ experience with the club between them.

Cornish is the club’s junior coach and selector, Hocking the fixtures and umpiring secretary (and selector) and Ranford is the club’s final selector and stand-in coach.

All three of them also umpire for the club’s teams.

The club added: “Without these ladies overseeing the running of Thursday evenings or a weekend of netball we would be lost, and we want to say a massive thank you to all three of you for the work that you do.

“Last of all, we would like to say thank you to Christina Martin, who stood down a couple of years ago from Sydenham Netball Club.

“Without all the hard work she put into the club, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
