Match Report

 

This game was always going to be the one no-one looks forward to playing, but luckily with it being the first game of the season we were able to get it out the way!
 
The A team consisted of the selected team, but with Abi still over the other side of the world (I know where I'd rather be!), new Jo from the D team was asked to make her debutant for the A team, on the first day of the season :). The B team were missing SJ, Laura and Rhian, so had Linz, Sam and Kim/Sue W playing up. It was also Sam's first game for Bulkington, and she was unlucky to have to play two games at Centre.  A massive well done and thankyou to both Jo and Sam for already making their marks at Bulkington :).
 
On to the game...
 
The A team began the game with their version of the 'Hakka' trying to relax everyone and have a bit of a laugh.  Much more practice is definitely needed prior to the return game!
 
During the first half, Bulkington A built up a good lead over the B team, but on court it felt much closer than the score reflected.  The B team showed good fighting spirit throughout the game, never giving up and adjusted to having players from the C team, who had already played once on the hottest day of netball ever in October!!
 
The final score was 40-20 to the A team, with the B team just missing out on a point. Well done to all the players, playing a difficult game which was played in good spirit throughout :)
