Some highlights from Juniors last season, with both U16s and U14s winning the West Yorkshire and Regional rounds of Club Nationals, progressing to Club National finals in Newcastle and Redbridge respectively. We are very proud of our U16s who came 4th and U14s coming 9th in the country. The U13s travelled to Shropshire where they were placed second in a PGL netball tournament and we entered four teams in the Bury tournament where there was stiff competition from over the Pennines and beyond. U12 did well at a strong regional tournament. And we've done well in Netball Nights too! We entered two teams in the West Yorkshire Hi five tournament giving many girls their first experience of tournament netball.
The seniors have also had an excellent season overall, in the Northern league our team coached by Jan Hemsley were winners, as were the Regional Senior League Team for Coach Maggie Birkenshaw. Our team in the West Yorkshire League Super League division is mostly an emerging squad of very young athletes (with a few brilliant seniors) and they were placed second at the end of the season. Our Prem team have just been successful in the division one playoffs to challenge once again in the top league in the country.
