We learnt today that a V.I.P. in the HERTS netball world lost her long and brave battle against cancer. Sleep well Kath. You will be missed by many. Our thoughts are with her husband Brian and their children.

A huge congratulations to the U16 squad who won a place to the Nationals representing Herts in March 2015.
We had a fantastic start beating Abbey Flyers 15-6 this put us all in good form to gain a win against SAS 12-1
Our next game was against Turnford who for our game only put their Youth Maverick Player in as GK. We changed
our tactics for this game and at half time we were 4-3 up. The game continued to be tight for the next part of the second half but a few turnovers from the opposing team gave them the advantage and the final score was 13-9 Pressure now on us was immense since we had to win all our next games to go through. Hatfield was our next game, we played hard in the first half winning 7-3 but seemed to lose steam and made some silly mistakes , thankfully we won 9-7. Our tightest game was against Hornets and again we seemed to lose focus on the second half but managed a 11-10 win. Our last game was against ASCO and all eyes were on this game as it was between these two teams as to who would go through. ASCO had held Turnford to a tie so there was increased pressure for us to win. It seemed to be the longest 14 minutes of my life, waiting for that final whistle seemed like an eternity. With exceptional team play we won
12-8 securing our place to the next round.
Lily is a very good player, committed to both her training and in matches. She has a quiet, happy personality and is friendly to all her peers. She listens to her Coach, absorbs the information given, and puts this into the game.
Katie is one of the nicest, hardworking members of the Group. Always 100% and listens to her coaches. She is a very friendly young lady to all her peers and her team spirit is outstanding.
Not my team playing tonight but what a performance by Team 3 at Harlow?? Mel was working some new combinations tonight. Behind by three at half time to a very talented Tegate side they “dug in” and played some brilliant netball. The entire team deserved the win that they achieved (finally). Freya (playing up) shot some crucial goals. Georgina (captain) lead her side very well from the front playing G.A. Anna Wacey fed the circle and supported the centre court at W.A. Lucie played her usual energetic game at C. Estelle (POM – well done) fought and tussled for every ball making some vital interceptions and picking up a couple of loose passes from the opposition at W.D. As the game wore on Lauren and Hanae began to get the better of the shooters and contested every ball going into the circle achieving a number of outstanding turn arounds. A “nail biting” second half girls. A mighty WELL DONE on a wonderful 19 – 18 scoreline.
Crosskeys 2 V Kardale.
Fantastic start to the season in Div 2 now, with a great win 47 – 15! All players went out fired up and gave their all in a newly formed team. My POM goes jointly to Rosa Handscomb and Lauren Ayers for great defence work together, turning over the ball and gaining rebounds and lots of tips. We’ll done to Joyce Barton, Esther Roberts, Holly Shilston and Romilly Scutt our shooters and Michelle Seary, Lucie Bastin-Sudworth, Megan Pointer, Lizzie Francis and myself (haha) covering centre court. Thanks to Lynn Ayers for scoring and Karen Elizabeth Heskett for helping out coaching us. Great supporters too!

However with this in mind we all knew that Sunday was then going to be tough and it was … putting all that aside as a team and individuals you embraced this and got better and better. So well done to
Kate, Tegan, Beth, Verity, Orla Lily Olivia & Nada. An extra special thank you goes to Hannah who sub stained an injury early on Saturday and then was unable to play for the rest of the event. Thank you for your continued support of your team it must have been real hard just watching

Thank you to all the parents for their support and the idea if the tshirts was fantastic – here’s to next year
U14's - Nottingham September 2014
Nottingham tournament 2014
The U14s had a great tournament. On Saturday we played 7 games of which we won 4 and lost 3. We had a great game V Turnford A where we took the lead and at the last minute they pipped us to win 5-4. This put us in the plate on Sunday.
Sunday we played 7 games again winning 6 losing the 7th by 1 goal which put us into 2nd place. We were the runners up and were pleased to receive medals. Yippee!!
All the girls played great together as a squad. Cam Brown was Captain and lead and played in great form as always. Lily, Alice, Emma W and Evie all shooting and playing other positions too being very versatile. Emma K and Laurel speeding round the centre court kept the flow going. Jess Barclay, her first Notts tournament, improving all the time over the weekend supported as GK and WD admirably. Jordan Hinks WA/WD was player of Tournament doing all that was asked of her, Listening and thinking, feeding well and most improved over the weekend.
Well done girls and thanks parents for your support.
