U14 netball county champions heading to Bournemouth this weekend

West Buckland’s U14 county champion netball players are off to Bournemouth this weekend for the West of England round of the National Schools Netball Tournament.

Following on from their recent success in the North Devon round of the competition just before Christmas at the University of Exeter, where the girls dominated all of their matches to emerge as county champions, West Buckland will be joined by Petroc’s U19s to represent Devon.

In the Devon round, a series of strong performances saw West Buckland overcome all of their opponents, scoring 69 goals in six games and conceding just 23.

U14 Coach Jan Witheridge said: “We came up against some strong opposition and our girls had to play hard to win. I am delighted for them and we are now looking forward to the regional finals.”
