Girls Are Greater Manchester Netball Champions
Thursday, 27 June 2019
A team of Junior Girls’ School pupils in Year 6 were victorious at the Greater Manchester School Games netball competition. They were chosen to represent Bolton following success at the qualifying rounds earlier in the year. The team was made up of Georgia Ainscough, Ella Clarkson, Amelia Crompton, Lily-Grace Greer, Rosie Heywood, Freya Marland, Imaan Rashid and Sienna White.
Mrs Higgins reports on the day:
“We didn’t get off to a very good start, being soundly beaten in our first game against Oldham Hulme 10-2. However, the girls didn’t let this put them off and they played very well to win the remainder of the games in their group.
We got through to the final without losing another match, but then had to play Oldham Hulme again! The girls were not very confident after the earlier match, but decided to give it their best shot and battled hard. At half time they were losing 5-2 but the change of positions in the second half gave them a new energy and they played brilliantly to eventually win 9–6.
It was such an exciting game and we were all delighted with the result and becoming the Greater Manchester Netball Champions 2019. Well done girls!”
