NorthLink Ferries Primary Netball League Off to Flying Start

Netball Orkney’s primary schools league kicked off a three-year sponsorship deal from NorthLink Ferries last weekend.

Now known as the NorthLink Ferries Primary Netball League the competition launched on Saturday 7 November. More than 20 primary teams are entered into this year’s tournament, which consists of three leagues named after the ferry operator’s vessels – Hjaltland, Hrossey and Hamnavoe.

Speaking of the sponsorship and competition, James Linklater, Customer Care Manager at NorthLink Ferries, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting this tournament and look forward to seeing the teams compete week in week out.

“We wish all of the teams the best of luck in the competition.”

NorthLink Ferries’ support of Orkney’s Primary Netball League is part of a wider pledge to support Orkney and Shetland’s community activities, events and groups.
