Our U16 played a friendly vs Tameside on Sunday, where we had 18 players experience tough matchplay as a benchmark ready for them entering the business end of the season. Some great learning and they will be reflecting individually, together and with Maggie to see what they need to work on. Thanks to everyone who came to support Northern and Premier teams today at Beckett, good support for both teams, including some of our U11s who stayed to watch!
League standings – to spoonfeed those who don’t go and look at league tables, here are the latest standings across the leagues we are in:
In National League Premier 1, we are hanging on in there at 7th, with two tough games to conclude the first set of fixtures! Click Here for the League Table
In Northern League, we are unbeaten, with an excellent goal difference, almost three times as much as the next team! Click Here for the League Table
In Senior Regional League, not many matches played – you only play each team once in this league – but a reasonable position mid table! Next fixture is not until 17th December.

In WY Seniors, who play in the SuperLeague (top) division of WY league, only one loss, so second with a game in hand and predictably close to HiTech. Click Here for the League Table
In Netball Nights Senior League, we are a very respectable 3rd, especially given the young age of our players and usually playing without any seniors to support them. Click Here for the League Table
In the WYJNL (West Yorkshire Junior Netball League), all the results are on this link, just hit the relevant tab. Our young U12Cs are topping the table of the league they are in. Our U12A are top, with our U12B not far behind in 3rd. In U14, our teams are 4th and 5th, but the U14A have a game in hand and are still aiming to qualify for the Regional Round. Our U16A are undefeated champions and qualify for the Regional Round, with a great goal difference. Click Here for the League Table
Training – Club training dates are on the Google calendar, as usual. We will be mixing Thursday night training up again a bit on 30 November and on 14 December, so Maggie will be taking the Senior Session, including some of the U16 squad. Susie will take U15s, with some U14s also moving up. Libby will stay with U14s. Age group admins will be in touch with the specifics of this. Mixing things up when we did it on 9 November worked well, it gives all the players different opposition and enables the coaches to look at different combinations in a different context.
Looking ahead – busy weekends coming up for some leagues, and with some friendlies where we can organise them. We are also in the process of confirming how many junior teams we will be entering into the leagues that start after Xmas. We couldn’t do all this without our coaches and parent helpers, so thanks again. Sometimes it is a thankless task, and you can’t do right for doing wrong, but hopefully most of the time it is worth it! Mostly the athletes benefit and appreciate it!
Injuries - it is that time of the season where we have a number of injuries, so here's some speedy recovery messages to pass onto all those with minor or more major injuries. Follow the advice you're given, take care, keep in touch with your coach, and get back as soon as you can but in a way that is sustainable.
Think that’s all folks for this weekend! Let’s hope we have wins across the board next weekend as well!
Thank you for your continued support for the Club.
