NEWCOMERS Amazon netball side is ready to take the Fiji Gold Nasinu Netball Association club games by storm this season.
The side defeated former champions ACS Old Girls 11-6 in the final of the association knockout tournament at Victoria Courts in Suva on Saturday.
Amazon, which is coached by Mereseini Delai and captained by Luse Kotobalavu has services of experienced players in Leba Waqavakatoga, Lusiana Rakavono and Pasepa Rinakama.
The team also has upcoming netters Grace Ravouvou, Ateca Tamanitoakula, Allison Delai and Koleta Jese.
Coach Delai said the depth in the side resulted in the win on Saturday.
“We have a good set of players that managed to beat the defending champions ACS Old Girls who have been champions for a few years now,” Delai said.
“Teamwork and understanding each others strength helped us pullthrough. We are here to stay and we know we can help upcoming players who are willing to take netball seriously.”
