Busy weekend. Well done to all our members competing in Regional schools. Those going through to nationals are: u14 - GSAL and Ripon Grammar; u16 - GSAL and Sheffield High; u19 - Greenhead and QE. Good luck to all our players travelling to Nationals in March to represent any of these teams! Huge achievement, and great for Club performance as well.
Starting with juniors in WY league. Both our HiFive teams (U11) won this weekend, each beating different Terrier Tot teams. In WY U12, the A team beat Huddersfield Giants and the Bs lost to Shipley. U12A are top. U14B had a good win over Wildcats B team and are in 3rd place. U14A secured an important victory against Chevrons and now top the regional table. U16 had a big win over Harrogate Pheonix and continue to top the table. Well done to all, thanks to coaches.
In Premier league, we lost away vs Worcester Reds, but still hold fifth place in the country's top league. We won in Northern League this weekend, against Grangetown, and are third in Northern league.
WY senior league. On Saturday, our senior WY team had a big win over Old Brods. We are top in this league.
Unfortunately, lost to a very strong Surrey Storm on Saturday night. Now looking for a win against Team Northumbria on Monday. Please note that some Jets matches are already sold out, so get tickets asap if you want to be in the crowd. Discount code where tickets are available is: JETS14. See YJ website for match reports etc, or visit "netballsl" website for an overview of all Superleague.
Susie has a ring which was found in the sports hall at GSAL on Thursday night. If the owner would like to e mail Susie (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a short description she will return it next week.
SUMMER ADULT LEAGUE - POSSIBLE AGE GROUP TEAMS
As you know, we're using Netball Nights successfully to develop some of our younger players. We're debating do we enter one or two teams during the summer and need to know interest from current u16 and u14 and seniors. We might enter a team based on each of next year's potential u16 and u14 squads, with each having a few seniors as well to help with player development! I realise people can't commit every week, but would need people to be available most Wednesday's between end March to end September! LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE UP FOR IT!
We don't have anyone to do tuck shop and wondered if anyone could step up? We'd also welcome anyone who could help with website content? We'd also welcome anyone who is a good administrator! We're very grateful for support we get in each age group, it is only u16 where we don't have any and thankfully Katie fulfils that role.
In case you haven't heard, Liverpool will host the World Cup in 2019.....exciting!!!
