Last Thursday the U12 netball team, which consisted of girls from Year 7 and Year 6, played a fixture at home against Sprowston High School.

The girls took part in an enthusiastic warm up led by our in-house netball coach, Gemma Ashton. The girls focused on tactics involving their shooting, centre and back line passes, which are crucial for a successful match.

The girls played superbly, acting on the advice given by Gemma and Mrs McGlinchey. They worked together as a team to lead 3 – 0 after the first quarter, with some strong defending by Ella Kassulke and Bronwen Laxton. After the second quarter we were still in the lead and the girls were going from strength to strength. We were delighted to win the match 9 – 0 thanks to some very accurate and brave shooting by Jessie Lloyd and Mia Ellis-Wood who were later voted players of the match.

We are now looking forward to our next match and hoping for more success!
