Longfield Netball Tour Success
33 keen young netballers headed to PGL Boreatton Park in Shrewsbury on Friday 10th May for Longfield’s annual netball tour and adventure weekend. Teams from Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 competed in a hard fought competition over 2 days which resulted in all teams making the semi-finals, with Year 8s achieving a bronze medal, Year 7s a silver and 2 golds for the Year 9 and Year 10 girls.
Miss Eldrington, commented that ‘the girls have worked extremely hard all year to prepare and it has been the best Longfield Netball Tour yet. The girls showed determination, resilience and respect and were a credit to Longfield.’
The Longfield girls have being playing brilliantly as a team! They had a real battle in the first round of the county cup competition against Cardinal Hume School, which finished 3-3 at full time; 5-5 at the end of extra time and finished with penalties. It was the last penalty taken that secured a win for the Longfield girls and this qualified them to play in the cup final on the 30th April 2019.
The cup final game was against St Bede’s School, Lanchester and this was the girls first ever county cup game. They rose to the challenge winning 10-1, a momentous achievement which saw them awarded with a trophy dating back to 1997!
They have shown fantastic team work and resilience and we hope they inspire younger pupils and encourage them to give football a go. Well done team, we are so proud!
