This year has been one of the best for Netball at Team Hordle; winning the High 5’s County Finals had to be the best! On our way to Aldershot,we knew we had to had to play our best (we had never played any of these teams before). Despite the fact that we were always really nervous, we never gave up and showed Captain Resillience.
Unfortunately,with Archie spraining his foot two days before the tornament we were all very nervous but luckily Emily Hayward stepped in to save the day. Again luck wasn’t on our side and Marshall dislocated his shoulder the day before we competed. It was a nailbiting moment but he all settled our nerves when he showed up at Aldershot Millitary Stadium.
After parading round the track, we set up a base with the help of a gazebo. Finally it was time to show our skills! We played fantastically and won the first five matches but had a really tough challenge when we had to play Sarisbury. Unfortunately we lost 5-4 but we but we showed superb teamship and won all our games apart from that.
With that we had played all our matches and had to wait for a nailbiting 10 minutes to find out if we had come top or our pool and to go through to the final… After listing nervously we found out that we had beaten Sarisbury by goal difference and had to play St Peters School in the final.
Without hesitation we went in all guns blazing and won the final; becoming county champions!
