NEWBURY STARS will be glittering in Division 1 netball in 2020.

The St George club earned passage back to the top flight after defeating Brydens Stokes 51-46 at the Netball Stadium on Monday, completing a sweep of the Division 2 play-off battle. 

The teams had ended tied at the end of the regular season after Stars had defeated Brydens but dropped a game to St Barnabas.

In Game 1 of the play-offs, Stars edged Brydens 56-55, and on Monday night the match seemed to be following a similar script, with close quarters of 15-13, 27-26 and 38-36. (KB)
