Silly Socks Netball Tournament - 18th March 2016
On Friday 18th March, our U10 team were involved in the Silly Socks Netball Tournament at Farrington’s. The event saw 11 teams all wearing crazy socks, play some fabulous netball and raise money for the charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young,)
Our U10 team has some very new recruits who have only recently started coming to practice but as they were so keen, came along to watch and substitute as required.
The first match played was against Breaside’s A team and they beat West Lodge 4-2. Next up were St Christopher’s A team who also beat West Lodge 8-0. After a team talk where out more experienced players were encouraged to play as we know they can and to come up the court more, the team then played Blackheath High’s A team and won this match 8-0! Feeling more positive, the team then met with St Olave’s A team and beat them 9-1. The winning streak continued when the team played St David’s A team who they beat 7-0, Finally, were Farrington’s A team. This was a tough match and West Lodge were defeated 3-0.
Well done to all the girls who played in the tournament and thank you to the parents who came along to support the team.
We now have a term to practise, practise, practise before the new Netball season begins in September.
