Tuesday 20th February we took 8 Netballers from Year 8 to the U13 County Plate Tournament at Kettering Buccleuch Academy. There were 8 schools entered which meant 7 games with only one break over the whole tournament. The girl’s first game was against Moulton, during which Francesca O’Dell demonstrated some fantastic attacking play and feeds into the circle finishing 5-0 to Sponne. 2 of the next 3 games finished 6-0 to Sponne against Bishop Stopford, The Duston School and Malcom Arnold Academy with impressive centre court play from Poppy Waldron, Alex Hall and Lilly Webb.
Some beautiful interceptions and unrelenting pressure from our defence Maddie Pritchett and Emily Hinton meant a clean score card for the final 5 games. The last game of the day was against Guilsborough and finished 11-0 to Sponne demonstrating the consistency shown throughout the day from our two shooters Maddie Brayfield and Phoebe Anderson who were selfless in there play. 7 games, 7 wins, only 3 goals conceded all day!!!
