June has been a busy month of trials, and we are pleased to announce our U12/14/16 squads for next season, these are on the relevant Junior Tab on the website. Big thanks to our coaches for selecting, to our umpires and administrators.
Our netball nights and WY summer league squads are doing well in their matches. Our athletes are doing very well securing their places in the Yorkshire Netball Pathway. Too many names to list here, but squads for U17/15/13 announced. Here is the link to the Yorkshire Netball websitehttp://www.netballyorkshire.co.uk/performance.html that contains details of the athletes selected into each age group. Final trials for U19 and NPL/NPFL tournament this Wednesday, so best of luck to all our athletes trialling.
Some of our athletes played an international U21 team from Trinidad and Tobago this weekend, as part of a Loughborough Select team, providing competition for T&T as they prepare for the World Youth Champs in Botswana later this month, and Georgia Pexton was lucky enough to captain and play for England U19 against Trinidad and Tobago U21 last week. Both the LBoro team and England U19 team beat T&T U21 - not bad results!
