With two years of pandemic-filled disruption since our last tournament, our newly reformed u16 regional squad had no clue what to expect. Having said this, travelling to Oundle School to play against nine of the best teams in the East Midlands, we were sure to come across some fierce competition. After completing the first round, (a round robin within our group of 5) we had won all matches but one, consequently finishing second in the group; this was enough to earn our place in the semi-finals. 

An intense 14 minutes of netball later, we had won our semi 12-10, earning us a place at the U16 National Schools Finals which will be held at Oundle School on the 12th of March. Emily Underwood (captain) said “ I cannot stress how proud I am of every single player, all of which gave 100% effort throughout the day to reach the goal of nationals towards which some of us have been working towards for over 3 years” The coaching team, led by Fiona Wade said “ This squad of netballers have been so supportive of one another both on and off the court, they have shown maturity way beyond their years, and worked so hard to achieve their goals. Nationals is new ground for us and we are excited to watch the girls perform amongst the countries finest teams''.
