Fal­li­b­roome in Na­tional fi­nals

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - NET­BALL

THE Fal­li­b­roome Academy un­der 19 net­ball team has qual­i­fied for the Na­tional fi­nals for the third year in a row for this squad.

This year they will be joined by the Fal­li­b­roome un­der 14s who have also pro­gressed from the North West Round at Wright Robin­son Sports Col­lege last Satur­day.

The un­der 19s who have built up a big rep­u­ta­tion af­ter their dom­i­nance in the area, were the team to beat on Satur­day. Their strong per­for­mances con­tin­ued af­ter im­pres­sive wins against Sed­bergh, Stony­hurst, Old­ham Sixth Form and Wir­ral Gram­mar School in the group stages.

They com­fort­ably pro­gressed into the semi-fi­nal where they faced Kings, Mac­cles­field.

A win meant a place in the na­tional fi­nals for the third con­sec­u­tive year. The girls pro­gressed into the fi­nal and be­came North West cham­pi­ons af­ter a great per­for­mance against Old­ham Sixth Form.

It is a great achieve­ment for this squad to have the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing in a Na­tional Fi­nal again.

Af­ter see­ing the older age group be­come Na­tional Cham­pi­ons last year our U14s had some great in­spi­ra­tion to try to match their achieve­ment.

They faced a very tough group where they im­pressed with wins against Clitheroe Royal Gram­mar (7-4), Range High School (13-7), Queen El­iz­a­beth Gram­mar School (10-4) and only los­ing out to Stock­port Gram­mar 10-4. The girls went through to the semi-fi­nals in 2nd place, mean­ing they faced Bridgewater who had topped their group.

Go­ing into the semi­fi­nals as un­der dogs, the girls put in a bril­liant per­for­mance and won 10-7.

The cel­e­bra­tions of an­other team in the Na­tional Fi­nals could be­gin with both fi­nal­ists pro­gress­ing to the Na­tion­als ir­re­spec­tive of the re­sult.

The fi­nal saw Fal­li­b­roome meet Bury Gram­mar School and de­spite the girls putting their all into the fi­nal, they just lost out 7-5.

Re­gard­less of the loss, the girls did them­selves and the school proud and to reach the Na­tional Fi­nal at their first at­tempt is a bril­liant achieve­ment.

The girls will now look to em­u­late the older team’s suc­cess as they chal­lenge to be­come Na­tional Cham­pi­ons.

Both squads will now travel down to Roedean School in Brighton for the fi­nals in March with both teams aim­ing to bring back more Na­tional Suc­cess for Fal­li­b­roome.
