What an amazing day out. The girls lost their first match 4-6 in a disappointing display against strong club opposition. I think they were struggling after the 2.5 hour journey to St Hugh’s. After that we played St Hugh’s A team and were equally disappointing in the first half losing 0-5. From this point there was not stopping us. We overhauled St Hugh’s and actually overcame the deficit and won 8-6 in a fantastic display of confident, quick netball. The remaining group matches were won 12-1, 11-0 and 8-5.
We had qualified for the main event – The Cup Final against the first team played in the first round and lost two. We were a little nervous but all the pressure was on Horncastle Belles who were the favourites. In a tight first half we were quite cautious, but managed to stay focused and won convincingly in the end 9-5 to hoist the trophy. A great day for the girls and a real indication of how far they have come over the last 2 years.
It was a very proud moment for me!
