Staff v. Alumni Netball Match
On Friday 20th January we held the first Staff v. Alumni Netball match. After a lot of catching up and reminiscing about the 'good old days' the match began. The alumni team were exceptionally strong, and the staff were most definitely challenged from the first whistle. Izzy B continued her flawless shooting technique from school along with a rotation of equally talented GA players; Kate G and Alice S. Mrs Woolgar, Mr Monk, Mr Southee and Megan G were put under a lot of pressure in the circle shooting with alumni such as Izzy P, Daisy K, Bridget C and Kate G showing no signs of letting us off easy! Center court play was incredible, Bethany B, Millie K, Amelie W-B and Hollie B were nippy and looked like that had been playing together for years but Miss Vickers, Mrs Faulkner (Miss Reynolds when she worked at Duke of Kent School), Mr Southee and Mr Gritton kept up with them all brilliantly.
It was a thrilling match with a final score of 27-25 to the staff team. Thank you so much for everyone who came, players and supporters, it made for a fantastic atmosphere and an extra thank you to the notorious Mrs Wilson for coming back to umpire along with Mrs Barlow. A final mention to Mr Orme and Mr Boden who had never played netball before but were naturals! Well played everyone, we look forward to the next match in 2024!
