Our year 6 team have had an excellent start to this year’s cup competition with a bye in the first round and a win of 12 – 0 against Watcombe last week. We were runners up last year and are definitely aiming to beat that this time!
On Tuesday 22nd November we played our first tournament at PCSA against 8 other teams. We took both our A and B teams and were extremely impressed by their enthusiasm and effort throughout a lot of hard-fought matches.
Our B team had only one other B team to play against, followed by 7 matches against the A teams - 2 of which they managed to draw! They performed brilliantly, never giving up against older and bigger children – they will make a great team by next year, well done all of you.
From the start our A team performed outstandingly; with incredible shooting, passing and defending skills. This continued and improved with every match until we had beaten all of the other teams and WON the tournament! Overall our A team scored 44 goals during the 8 matches.
I would like to thank the parents and grandparents who helped transport the children, they were treated to some incredible netball from such young players. Thanks also go to Kayleigh Perrow, a former netballer from Torre, who has started coaching with me and took charge of the B team throughout the tournament.
Well done to you all:
Kayleigh, Hannah, Maria, Millie, Ewan, James, Joe, En, Henry, Tilly, Gabriella, Rhianna, Zuzia, Phoebe and Phoebe.
