Netball round-up: U14 side secure win over Liverpool College

Netball stars at Rydal Penrhos put in a number of impressive performances against opposition from the Wirral and Merseyside recently.

A large number of teams across different age groups took on Birkenhead School and Liverpool College, with plenty of impressive individual and team showings throughout.

The U14 side recorded an notable 9-7 win at home against Liverpool on Saturday, with fine shooting from Cerys Cuddihy and Eryri squad member Anna Parry-Williams proving to be the difference between the two sides.

Stout defensive work from Eleanor Osbourne and Amanda Sperring also contributed significantly to the success, as did player-of-the-match performances from Eliza Harrison-Dine and Sydney Johnson.

The U15 side also performed well for long periods but eventually lost 14-9 despite a number of fine efforts from the likes of Keira Bonnington and Tallulah Batley.

Both the U13 and U12A sides were also in action against the College, and significant improvement was made from both teams which gives plenty of encouragement for forthcoming fixtures.

Among those players who shone on the day were Sophie Williams, Phoebe White, Emily Madden, Hannah Gasem, Katie Richards, Ellen Jones, Bella Rutherford, Emily Thomas, Charlotte Hourihane and Rebecca Mann and Sophie Madden.

Rydal Penrhos’ first and second VII squads travelled to Birkenhead for what were a pair of both challenging and highly competitive fixtures.

Although the first team came away with a 39-24 defeat, there were a host of pleasing efforts from the likes of Mollie Smithfield, Sammy Sherrington, Emily Cashell and Sam Randall, with skipper Soumini Peeka and Becky Lawton also coming out of the match with credit.

Despite a strong start the seconds also had nothing to show from their efforts after notable displays from Mia Lynch, Samiya Garrod and Gowri Pradeep.
