Cookey was vice-captain when England picked up a gold medal at the World Netball Series in Liverpool and continues with that title at the 2015 Netball World Cup in Sydney.

Former Storm defender Geva Mentor was also inducted, and they join Mary Beardwood and Sonia Mkoloma Storm names in the Hall of Fame line-up.

The pair were recognised at a special event organised by the England Netball Supporters Club, which gave fans who had travelled down under for the World Cup a chance to meet their heroes.

The exclusive club was launched in 2001 to recognise people who have made a notable and significant contribution to England Netball and the sport internationally and have reached the highest honours in their respective fields.

Congratulations to both Pamela and Geva on their recognition.
