Saturday saw thirty-five ladies compete in the inaugural Foundation Mums’ Netball Competition. The day started with Mr Bowes-Taylor leading a group warm up to 90s hits, before the competition got under way. After six very competitive league games, Belmont and Grimsdell won their way through to the final. In the hotly contested trophy match, Grimdells’ clinical shooting in the circle proved the difference as they ran out winners by six goals to three to take the trophy and thus remain undefeated for the entire morning.
We very much hope that this will become an annual event and that the Friday Mums’ netball sessions (Mill Hill outside courts at 3:45pm), will continue to grow and be popular. Special mentions go to Carly Novick (Grimsdell), Laura Turner (Belmont) and Roni Collins (MHS) who were instrumental in rallying the players for their respective schools. Belmont’s efforts were particularly impressive as they fielded not one but two teams on the day. Congratulations also goes to Kate Freed (Grimsdell), Emma Steadman (Belmont) and Nadine Graville (MHS) who were voted players of the day by the ladies. Finally a huge thanks to Mr Liffchak and Mr Bowes-Taylor who were instrumental in the smooth running of the day. Thoughts now turn to the next set of parents sports fixtures for the Summer Term which include the Parents and Pupils Golf Competition, Parents and Pupils Doubles Competition (Tennis) and the MHS Staff Vs Parents Cricket Match (on the 21st of June).
