Yesterday evening our 7 budding netballers played in the South Tyneside Finals at Whitburn CofE Academy.
They, along with the 4 other qualifying teams played some wonderful matches resulting in us being declared CHAMPIONS of South Tyneside and thus progressing to the Tyne and Wear County Finals, to be held on March 29th.
The children Captained by Charlie Bates won their first game, comfortably winning 3-0 against St.Oswald’s Hebburn. They then played Mr Rogers’ former school St. Aloysius winning 3-1. In their third game, despite having most of the possession they won a close match against Biddick Hall Juniors. Then in the final match, with the pressure off the team, unlucky not to score some of their attempts were narrowly defeated by Mortimer.
Congratulations to the team including: Aston Hall, Sahib Basra, Maddison Fontaine, Erika Judd, Brooke Urwin & Beth Thompson. We wish you lots of luck in the County Finals later this month.
