Our amazing U12 team WON the Regional tournament at the EIS Sheffield on Sunday. They won some games by some big margins, with just a couple of close games and one draw, eventually winning the competition on goal difference. Coaches John and Meghan were thrilled with the performances, some good reward for the season’s hard work! This makes our U12s Regional Champions the top accolade for teams in this age group. Big shout out to Catriona Astbury who kept everyone updated on our Facebook group with scores and performances throughout the day, thank you.
On Wednesday our young NNB team faced Jets who provided fierce and mature opposition, they lost, but there was lots of learning as ever for these youngsters playing senior netball.
The Summer League girls were disappointed to have their match cancelled due to exam desks still set up in the sports hall. This match will be played on the 21st July.
Anna and Maggie had another victory with LBoro Lightning on Saturday, the tenth in a row, assuring them of a top 4 spot. Good luck to all our players and former in NSL as we head towards the last games before semis etc.
Excitement is building up towards our annual awards night on Friday, thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help, if you haven’t got a job and want to help out at the end it would be really appreciated.
