Flying the flag for Army Netball

The England Roses won four out of four matches at the Netball Europe Open Championships 17 to retain their title in Cardiff.

This year’s Championships saw three players from the Army compete. Private Fern Davies represented Wales while Lance Corporal Adi Bolakoro and Corporal Alisis Nawele took to the court for Fiji.

Pte Fern Davies joined The Royal Logistic Corps in 2014. Already having her first cap for the Welsh U19’s squad she was quickly utilised in The RLC and Army Netball Teams.

With her talent not going unnoticed, she gained her first senior cap for Wales in 2014 at the age of 18.

Pte Davies was invited to attend the Army Sports Awards in 2015; this is where she placed as runner up in the ‘Rising Star’ category.

It was during this year that she was able to play for The RLC at inter-corps where the team placed as runner’s up and then for the Army at the Inter-Service Championships, where she came away a champion.

In 2016, Pte Davies was awarded RLC Young Sportswomen of the Year. She also signed for the Celtic Dragons and has worked tirelessly to help raise the profile of netball within the Army.

When she finally gets some ‘down time’, Pte Davies usually finds herself playing rugby and competes in athletics for the UK Armed Forces. She is the current champion in the 100m hurdles ‘ an all-round athlete!
