OM Ama Agbeze captains triumphant England netball team

Tuesday, 17 April 2018

As the Commonwealth Games came to an end at the weekend it was amazing to see the England netball team capture the Gold Medal in a hard fought and nail biting final against the Australians - the favourites and world number ones.  Captained by OM Ama Agbeze this was a truly inspirational display from all the team who played their hearts out to the very end. 

Commenting on the BBC Sport website Ama said: "There was limited sleep last night so it's really impressive we managed to turn the happiness of yesterday around.

"I think Australia have felt under pressure this whole tournament. I had confidence after coming from six down against Jamaica and we felt comfortable."

England had only beaten Australia five times in their history before Sunday - but not since 2013 and never at a major tournament.

Congratulations to Ama and all the England team.
