Cheshire Academy Athletes Undefeated in Jersey
March saw 34 selected athletes from the County Satellite and Academy squads head of to Jersey for a weekend of netball. Arranged by academy assistant coach Phil Owen, we liaised with the Jersey NDO Chrissy Bannerham after a chance conversation between her and County Chair via Facebook (the wonders of social media).
After a coach trip to Southampton and short flight to Jersey, we dropped our gear off at the hotel and headed straight out for an evening of Bowling and Pizza, noting that coach Phil did have a couple of sneaky goes!
Saturday started with a short coach trip to the venue and the U16’s matching up on a wonderful court against Jersey U16 academy. A good fast game with Cheshire coming out on top. Head coach Chris Brien with assistant Mel Morris were pleased with the performance generally getting all the girls on court – always things to work on though. CLICK HERE for the full report.
