Witham Hall U11B Netballers win Leicester Grammar JS ‘B’ teams Tournament!

16 Mar 2015

The Squad: Zara Williams, Chloe Howard, Mia Paylor, Georgina Eatch, Jemima Paganuzzi, Katie Wraith, Lulie Pumphrey.

The U11B team entered the Leicester Grammar JS ‘B’ teams tournament with the A team competing in the A team tournament. Despite being a B team competition there were some very strong teams there including the Stoneygate U10A team who we have met several times this season and always had very close matches with. The girls made a very strong start to the afternoon beating Ratcliffe 8-0 and showing great team work and determination. In the second match the girls were more challenged by a tall Leicester Grammar Junior School side but still managed a 4-2 victory. Our 3rd match was against Stoneygate and despite leading throughout the majority of the match a last minute goal for Stoneygate resulted in a 2-2 draw. Witham went on to beat Brooke Priory and Stamford JS, but with no breaks in between matches we hadn’t had a chance to look at any other teams’ results. As we sat down for the presentation we weren’t sure where we had placed so it was wonderful to see the joy on the girls’ faces as Witham U11B were announced the winners of their tournament!
