Crescent’s U9 Girls travelled to Stafford Preparatory School on Thursday 26 April to play in the rearranged Independent Schools Association (ISA) Regional Midlands Netball Final. The snow had stopped play on the original date of 15 March.

Playing in the tournament were teams from some of the top schools across the region including Old Vicarage School, Stafford Preparatory School A and B, Mylnhurst Preparatory School and Salterford House School.

The girls played superbly, they were focused and accurate in putting the skills learnt in training into practice. As a result they won all of their matches and scored the highest number of goals in the tournament, finishing in first place and worthy winners of the ISA Regional Midlands Champions title.

The Crescent match scores were: 4-0 Mylnhurst (Tournament winners on numerous occasions), 7-0 Stafford Prep B, 7-2 Salterford, 4-0 Stafford Prep A and 2-1 Old Vicarage.

Head of Girls’ Games, Rachel McCollin, had high hopes for the team and she was not disappointed, “What a great way to end the netball season. This victory was truly deserved, the girls have shown fantastic commitment and dedication to netball, attending every training session throughout the year whether at lunch-time or after school.”

The victorious team comprised: Lucy Bentley, Phoebe Causer, Arabella Drinkwater, Amelie Frere, Sienna Moran, Izzy Slaytor, Issy Thompson, Chloe Wensley and Maryn Yates.

Well done girls we are incredibly proud of you.
