Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles.

Taunton Netball Club’s very own Lauren Knight successfully trialled for the AoC Netball Colleges Team this season. Her season is going from strength to strength, playing against Northern Ireland Under-17s and Under 21s at the weekend.


The team had two fabulous wins with 50+ goal difference to beat Northern Ireland U17’s 77-27 and a 40+ goal difference against Northern Ireland U21s winning 67-27.


Having played superbly in the games, WD Lauren was awarded Coaches player and players’ player. A brilliant achievement for a Somerset rising netball player.
