Crosskeys U12 White vs HHR Navy 1 Wormley Summer League 3rd May 2018

The new U12 White Squad

Crosskeys have launched a second squad, U12 White, in this summer league to give more of the U12 girls an opportunity to play competitive club match netball and thereby raise the standard of play in the junior club. The Turnford League, a local league which we have entered, is one of the toughest in the country – the U16 National Champions come from this league. So we are in at the deep end. Our players, except one, have not played competitive match netball before and they are up against teams who have played in this league for two years or more.
Today’s match gave us some hope that we will progress and make our way in this league with our peers and emulate the success of the U12s Purple. We had a squad of 11 today and everyone played their part. We did show that we can move the ball fluently down the court, accompanied by encouraging shouts from the coach “Well done Keys, that’s good netball”, which bodes well for our future involvement. We are still developing formations and encouraging our players to try different positions and combinations with a few worried looks; but there is a good spirit and an air of resilience in this squad. A work just starting but in progress. We lost to a good Rangers team 42-10.
POM voted by Rangers Squad: Grace — deservedly for being the glue that held the attack together.
Coach POM: Kacey for boundless energy and never say die attitude at Centre, and Ruby M for emerging from timidity and stage fright in the first quarter, into a go-getting attacking player.
Congratulations to all the squad for throwing themselves into this venture with good heart and commitment. Let’s roll.
Our Squad: Grace(capt), Ruby M, Ruby C, Melaina, Kacey, Kiara, Bronte, Evie, Molly, Alessia, Zara.
Thanks to coaches Wendy, Lisa and Marion for taking on the extra work for this venture, and Jackie for her even-handed, safe umpiring. And the parents for supporting the squad in this new venture.
Points noted from the match for next training session:
• Passing: timing, movement and thinking — for every session.
• More importantly, winning at life.
