Netball - 16 November

Round 1

The Culford U9 Girls played in a mini netball festival on Wednesday 16 November. Group A contained two teams from Culford: the Black team and White. In group B, we had Culford’s own Blue, Red and Green teams.  The girls played with lots of energy and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. 

In the first game, the Blue team were up against the Red team. The first half was a close competition; however the Blue’s got into a rhythm in the 2nd half and won the game 2-1. 

The next game saw the Blue team take on the Green team. Both teams made some great movement on court; however the Blue’s dominated this game, winning 7-0. 

Lastly, the Green team played against the Red team. Both teams had opportunities and moved the ball well, however the Red’s won the game 7-0.

In the A group, Brookes Cambridge beat both the Black and White teams and a thrilling match between the Black and White teams saw the Black team as winners by 3 goals to 0.


Black: Evie Hollingsworth

White: Poppy Hawkins

Blue: Henrietta Wilson

Red: Esther Almond

Green: Sadie Ford


Culford Blue 0 v 0 Brookes Cambridge

The final saw Culford’s Blue team take on Brookes Cambridge.  It was an exciting and well matched game with the ball going backwards and forwards up the court. Both teams defended well, preventing each other getting into their shooting circles. 

In the 2nd Half Culford gained an opportunity to shoot. Unfortunately the nerves got the better of Culford’s shooters and the game finished 0-0.

Well done to all of the girls and thanks to Miss Olley and Mrs Wakefield
