Congratulations to the Netball U9 team

U9 Netball vs Beechwood

W 4-0


With a weather forecast of sleet, driving winds and languishing temperatures,  I did not hold out much hope for the junior matches today! Happily, despite the bitter cold, the matches went ahead. Today everyone in both Year 3 and 4 played their part in the U9 and U8 fixtures and two happy and packed mini buses made their way home full of tired and victorious 'Netballers'!


The U9's who only beat Beechwood by one goal last term had a superb game today and as their coach I know that the key moment has arrived whereby the girls are truly working as a unit, moving the ball quickly and accurately to team-mates on the move in some lovely runs of play!


A new confidence has taken hold and our defending was fearsome against some strong play from Beechwood! It seems the girls have fully taken on board our buzz word for this half of term which is to work with 'energy'!


We will now build on this new team confidence and practice our shooting whenever possible. Meanwhile the U9's remain unbeaten this season!


Man of the match goes to Evelyn who was outstanding today making many interceptions and displaying superb attacking play! Most improved player is Charlotte who worked her socks off as GK!


Well done girls!
