Remember, remember the 5th of November; the day the mighty Under 11 netball team set off for a tournament at Fonthill Lodge.
Spirits were high as they played their first game against St Aubyns; a convincing win 4-0. The girls looked nervous as they faced their next opponents ‘Cumnor House’ a very tough team to beat but the girls held their nerve and won 2-1. The final match in their group, could they make it 3 out of 3 – YES!! They went on to win 5-0 against Burgess Hill Prep. They had won all 3 games and were in the final against Brambletye who had won all of their games in the other group. The girls were beginning to feel the pressure against a very strong team, the game was fast paced and at half time Copthorne led by 2 goals to 1, there was no time to be complacent, both teams dug deep and fought to the bitter end; final score was 3 – 2 to Copthorne!
The mighty under 11 team had won their first tournament with great determination and awesome team work – am so proud of the way they played; they never gave up and thoroughly deserved to win – well done girls.
