UNIVERSITY of South Wales Women’s 4th netball team are looking for a fresh start to kick off the new season after a disappointing winless campaign last year.

USW come up against Cardiff University 8th Medics, who will be making the short trip to Treforest. They  finished comfortably in fourth place last season, in the Western 5B league.

Cardiff Medics boast a -44 goal difference from last year, compared to USW’s -467.

It seems to be the goal scoring which is proving to be USW’s stumbling block in their quest for glory. They managed to score more than 10 points in just two games over the course of last season, so it’s clear what the focus will be this time around.

Cardiff also managed to secure four victories in the previous campaign, so it looks to be a huge challenge for USW, as they attempt to grab their first victory of the campaign.

The match gets underway at 13:30.
