Steyning Primary hosted the first round of the Cluster High 5 Netball Championships held on the Grammar School's courts under floodlights. Every year this competition is hard fought and our area always produces good teams that in the last three years have represented the Southern Area in the all Sussex Finals. This first leg is for the teams to find their feet and learn the rules, so that by the end of the four fixtures they are playing at full speed with skill and precision.
Steyning started off with a defeat to the defending champions St Peter's, Henfield who always select a well drilled team normally including some basketballers who are great at shooting. This was the case in 2018. They then drew with Upper Beeding, who were penned back in their half for the majority of the game, but steyning could not take their chances. Finally Steyning finished of with a win against Jolesfield Primary, with goals from Darcy, Oscar a brace a piece, and one each for Esme and Lucy.
This bodes well for the future as we have a large group of players to pick from with strength throughout all areas. Well done everyone. Let's see if we can reach the Southern Area Finals again this year.
