We were delighted that this fixture went ahead as the weather forecast on the day was bleak. Luckily, the predicted stormy weather held off and the girls were all able to play.
The girls were understandably nervous about their first match. They have all been playing a good standard of netball in their games lesson and this was reflected in their match. Captained by a very committed Ella J they showed good team work and the two shooters Kitty and Evie were very accurate . Fairlands also displayed good catching skills and this led to an inspiring game.

A very athletic team. They are fiercely competitive and determined. The shooting was tricky as the wind had picked up at this point. However, Libby and Sophia didn’t let this deter their ability. The final score

This team had played the previous evening and found themselves in a match which was very even. Fairlands displayed great centre play and the ball kept moving but in the first half no nets were scored. The second half was also very even but both teams managed to score.

These girls have been working together for a while and this showed . The movement and agility of all pupils was very pleasing to watch. Hannah , the captain was a good role model for the younger pupils as Goal Attack , her technique in shooting was text book. It was an interesting thought that both year eight teams will combine in year nine at Kings … a future very strong team I think.

It was pleasing to give our sports leaders another opportunity to coach and in some cases umpire. Thanks to Alexa, Grace ,Zara, Liberty, Felicity and Olivia for their support.
Both myself and Miss Evans ( the PE teacher at Fairlands ) were delighted to be able to hold such an uplifting festival after Covid has prevented fixtures.
