Congratulations to the U14 and U16 netball teams who competed in the National Netball tournaments at Malvern, St. James. The teams competed in the pool competitions initially and faced tough oppositions throughout the tournament. The U14 team went through to the plate competition after the group stages and battled hard to win their first semi-final game. They then faced a tough opposition in the finals, and lost marginally to Hull Collegiate despite playing some fantastic netball. They finished 2nd in the plate competition and battled until the very end of their final game. The U16s came 2nd in their group stages only by goal difference. They went on to play an extremely tough quarter final and unfortunately lost 5-4 to the team who came 2nd overall. We would like to thank Vicky Innes for the extra coaching sessions which helped the teams prepare and Kirsty Davis who travelled with us and umpired at the tournament.
Well done to all the U16 team members who were Tillie Cholwill, Kitty May, Emma Honey, Ava McDiarmid-Hall, Bella Russell, Ella Henry-Brock, Sharni Harbour and Molly Barton.
Well done to all the U14 team members who were Belle Ferguson, Darcy Courtney-Bridgey, Issy Thorns, Lowenna Head, Ellie Tucker, Pippi Harris, Maddie Marsh and Holly Kerslake.
A special thank you goes to Sandymouth Café, Bude who kindly sponsored the new Netball dresses.
