Ines is a relatively new arrival at Crosskeys, only being with us for about 18 months. She is a quiet, likeable girl, and mixes well with the other members of her age group. She is keen to learn, listens to her coach and really gets involved with training. Her standard of play has improved and she is now a regular member of the Year 8 squad.
Jessica has been with Crosskeys for about two years. She has a great personality, bubbly and always smiling, which has a very positive effect on the other members of her squad. She is a very good athlete and has been selected to the County Academy squad, seldom misses training and is a regular member of her age group team.
We all turned up on this cold, extremely wet and rainy day in October for a day of Netball.
The girls bravely went out to warm up in the pouring rain with all good intentions.
We got off to a great start in the pouring rain and won the first game V Civil Service 12 – 0!
We went on to win another 3 matches, drawing 2 games – a fantastic draw V Manor 7 – 7, which was a great result as the girls did what i asked of them and they really played their socks off! We lost to Brentwood and Essex Open and finished the day fourth overall.
As a coach I am proud to say the girls had fantastic team spirit even though it was terrible weather and I thank their parents for all their support on such a wet day.
Well Done – Evie, Molly, Olivia, Emma, Laurel, Jordan, Alice and Lily.
Olivia has been with Crosskeys for approximately four years. She is a very good team member, always smiling, and gives 100% all the time. She is very kind and welcoming to new members. She attends training regularly and is available for most matches, encouraging her team from the side line when not playing.

On 7th/8th September Crosskeys took our Year 8/9/10s to this 2 day Tournament. The weather was kind to us and lots of great netball was played.
Year 8s (U13s) did us proud and played some great netball on both days. They took on board all what they learnt through training and effectively used some tactical team tactics to win games and secure a place on the 2nd day in the Cup Tournament by winning 3,drew 1 and losing 3 games. Read More

Just to say that Pat Longville has just phoned to say that Crosskeys Netball Club are sending a contribution of £150 from them for Winston’s Wish. What a fantastic contribution that is. I will send an e mail round to everyone letting them all know about these contributions plus the total amount raised which is now approx £800! What a great amount.
