King’s crowned league cham­pi­ons

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - NET­BALL

THE King’s In­fant and Ju­nior Di­vi­sion net­ball squad have won the Mac­cles­field and District Pri­mary Schools’ League win­ning ev­ery match in the pres­ti­gious six games se­ries.

The mini hot shots showed some steely determination es­pe­cially in a ti­tanic match against Marl­bor­ough one of the high­lights of a com­pet­i­tive sea­son.

The team was built around Cap­tain Fan­tas­tic and cen­tre mid­field play­maker Leah Shad­well, who or­gan­ised the team su­perbly. Goal shoot­ers, the clin­i­cal Madi Bax­ter and ver­sa­tile Phoebe Thomp­son pro­vided the ma­jor­ity of the goals with su­perb sup­port from long range spe­cial­ist So­phie Fletcher. Wing mid­field Ge­orgie San­ders pro­vided the tac­ti­cal wis­dom, with the de­fence built around un­com­pro­mis­ing goal keeper So­phie John­son and the rock Ly­dia Hine and the res­o­lute Sofia Og­den.

King’s In­fant and Ju­nior Di­vi­sion Net­ball coach Ni­cola Squares said: “The girls work hard and have great ca­ma­raderie.” Her fel­low coach Ali­son Moores added: “The girls al­ways play to win and had their sights set on the ti­tle from the very first game.”
