On Wednesday 28th November the year 7 netball team faced Emerson Park in the Essex Cup competition.

The girls were enthusiastic to say the least and we had a very excitable journey to Hornchurch. Having not met this team before, and with only our second game in the competition the girls had a bit of a shaky start!

After the first quarter, it took an intense team talk to calm the girls down and settle them back into their normal netball play. As the second quarter started the girls proved to be a different team. From then on they turned the game round; with some excellent defending from Rachel Dunn and determination from Millie Barker the girls continued to excel.

The final score was 11-5. A very good team performance and player of the match was awarded to Ellen Hoad. The year 7 squad have their next Essex Cup fixture against Barking Abbey next week.
