Netball Youth Finals

Year 6 Netballers achieve great things!

Our Year 6 netballers travelled to Stanley Park Blackpool to represent Blackburn in the Lancashire Youth Games.

In the group stages the team performed well gaining comfortable wins over teams representing areas from all over the county. A close game was fought with Preston, but a loss still meant the girls qualified for the semi finals.

They faced Carlton St Hilda’s from the Wyre and a score of 6-3 saw them through to the final, in which they were to play Preston again. Not wanting to be defeated and the glint of gold in sight spurred the girls on to perform magnificently. With a winning score of 6-1 Westholme took gold medals.

Congratulations to the whole team – what a fantastic achievement!
