Match Report: U12 and U14 netball v Thetford Grammar School

On a sunny but windy afternoon this week, the U14 and U12 netball teams travelled to Thetford. Both teams demonstrated how using channels within the game can help us to spread out to receive a pass. Sadly, neither team won but Players of the Match went to Harriet and Ruby D. Well done girls!
