Victoria Cutforth: Ely Netball Club's Unsung Hero

ELY NETBALL CLUB welcomed James Burridge of the BBC at training this week (07 December 2016), as he interviewed Victoria Cutforth who has been chosen as a regional finalist for the BBC Unsung Hero Award for services to sports volunteering.

A club member nominated Victoria for all her efforts in making Ely Netball Club the success it is today, for welcoming women of all backgrounds to stay fit, healthy and participate in the sport of netball.

The Club was established in 2003 and has grown from one team to its current five teams, and has recently received funding grants from Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving, Ridgeons Group Community Fund and the People’s Trust Postcode Lottery.

Victoria is instrumental in ensuring all the administration and organising happens allowing the remainder of club members to turn up and get on with the task of playing!  Victoria is the club Treasurer, also a Level 1 Coach, delivering regular fun training sessions and is working towards her C qualification umpire award, and plays Goal Attack for Ely Team 2 in local Cambridge and District Netball League.

A regional finalist will be selected and will go on to attend the final round at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year on 18 December 2016.
