The first game of the season took place on a lovely, sunny, early summer evening last Wednesday. The game was against Gwernyfed and played at home. It was due to be a year 7 & 8 fixture against Gwernyfed, however they had two very strong year 8 teams and our year 8 team had been decimated by broken arms and a Beacons netball training session for an important Competition. That meant the Year 9 girls stepped in to help out too and produce two mixed age teams – the Tigers and Bears!
Play was fast and furious and surprisingly skilful for the start of the season, with some excellent bowling, fielding and batting being displayed.
The Tigers won their first game convincingly 7 – 3 and narrowly lost their second. Meanwhile the Bears managed a 3 all draw and another narrow loss by half a rounder.
The players were:-
Nia Starkey, Olivia Mills, Hannah Evans, Isobel Ross, Bethan Hellard –Gair, Jasmine Calloni, Amy White, Leah Davies, Lois evans-Thomas, Marian Del Giudice, Shaunna Evans, Gwenni Kenchington, Hannah Marshall, Chloe Edwards,, Cerys Beckett, Zienna Walker, Kelsey Shepherd, Robyn Bishop, Carmen Osborne, Chloe Jones.
