It has been a busy year for our junior club with lots of things going on.
Our U14 team was successful in qualifying for the Regional competition this year, the games played were highly competitive and all our players benefited from playing in this competition.
We entered junior teams in the Tyne and Wear League at U11, U12, U14 and U16.
The U11’s won their group, well done
The U12’s came second, another great performance
The U14’s and U16 team were both mid table, but it gave all the players a chance to play competitively.
We took two U16 teams to Disneyland Paris over the Easter period; both teams were a credit to the club and only just got beat in their respective semi-finals by the overall winners.
We have entered a number of teams in the Northumberland Junior Summer League, 1 U11 team, 3 U14 teams and 2 U16 teams. This league is still underway but we are hopeful that the success of the U11 and U14 teams continues.
We have sent players for trials with both Tyne and Wear and Northumberland, well done to those successful players.
At Christmas the junior club did a bag pack at Sainsbury’s this raised money for the junior club to contribute towards strip for the players going to Disneyland Paris.
We entered an U11 and U14 team in the Northumberland County Netball Tournament, a fantastic result for both squads who were both overall winners.
An U14 team was entered into the Tyne and Wear Junior Tournament coming second to Novos Netball Club on goal difference.
Finally, in the Northumberland junior competition the U11, U14 B and U16 B all came first and the U14A came in third place.
The last training session for this season is on Tuesday 18th July 2017.
Training for next season commences on Tuesday 12th September 2017. The 5-6 sessions are for all players in years 6 and below from September 2017, the 6-7 sessions are for age groups 7-9.
We are planning on doing 2 bag packs this year one near Christmas and 1 near Easter; these help fund essential equipment for the club.
