Wokingham School Games Netball Tournament

16th October 2018

Yesterday, it was the long-awaited netball tournament for Years 5 and 6 at The Bulmershe School. A squad of eight children travelled on the school minibus to the tournament to represent Shinfield as the ‘A’ Netball Team. The first game, against tough opposition, finished as a 1-1 draw but the following games resulted in four back-to-back wins. Progressing through into the semi-finals was the next step and Shinfield were faced with Aldryngton Primary School. The game was extremely tight and at fulltime there had been no points scored. Extra-time followed and a flurry of points were scored with Shinfield emerging triumphant. The final followed but just like last year, Shinfield were narrowly beaten by Westende. Mr Lappin was extremely proud of the whole squad and said that their tournament performances were some of the best he had ever seen by Shinfield children!
