Beth Parker: Jack Petchey Award Winner, April 2019

Beth has been a member of Crosskeys for seven years. During that time she has developed her skills as a netball player dramatically, working hard in training, listening to her coaches and always adopting a great attitude.

Two seasons ago Beth trialled successfully to gain a place  in the Essex Netball Pathway and is a regular in their squad on match play days. Her enthusiasm and dedication to our club is evident in the support she gives to other players in helping them to “fit in” and that she is always willing to help out at events and at training with younger players.  In the future Beth intends gaining her umpiring and coaching qualifications, once her studies allow, so that she can continue to develop other areas of her netball.

Crosskeys U12 White vs Saffron Hawks19th July 2018

A month or so ago, a lifetime for this my rookie squad, we were celebrating that we had found an attacking formation that worked. And in the course of a match, we were able to move from a low single figure score in a match to double figures. An injury to our centre, Kacey, soon after meant that we had to look again. Today Kacey was able to return for a quarter or two to test things out. Saffron Hawks turned out a top team against us and, with our attacking formation of Mileina, Grace and Ruby C, we matched them goal for goal until another injury to Kacey meant she had to come off. Our reorganising took Molly out of defence into a shooter role and this worked reasonably well for the attack, but the accompanying reshuffle in defence made it difficult for the first-time combination in defence. But fair play to Alessia, Evie and Ruby M for keeping at it from start to finish.
Kacey was able to come back on and we were able to show how effective we can be as an attacking unit. We were able to net 18 goals, our highest this term, against a good Hawks side. But it’s early days for this squad, and while we have produced an attack of some quality, we do need to concentrate on our defensive capabilities next season as the scoreline of 18-48 shows.

POM voted by the Saffron Hawks Squad: Grace
Coach POM: The whole squad: Grace(capt), Ruby Mc, Ruby C, Mileina, Kacey, Evie, Molly and Alessia.
Thanks to Jackie for her even-handed, safe umpiring throughout the term and her encouraging words at half-times. And the parents for supporting and celebrating with this new rookie squad.
A special thanks to Marion for instigating and co-coaching our meetings with a horde of girls who came from Passmores with Aislinn and from St Marks at Stewards this season and helped to turn them into a squad, which we entered in the Summer league. First term over. What a roller coaster ride! Our wins — very sweet. Our defeats — good learning points for the squad and me.

Points to take away from the season:
1. Keep fit and active over the summer – swim, run, dance, play physical games.
2. Be prepared to be flexible in playing different positions on court
3. Make friends in netball and enjoy your time with them
4. Celebrate your team spirit.
5. Be fearless
6. Develop your listening skills and try to put into action what you have learned.
