Spalding High School U16s have won the County Netball Championship

The team of Year 10 and Year 11 girls triumphed in a tournament at Skegness Academy, winning all eight matches.

As county champions at U14 level last season, hopes were high but there is a big step up to U16 level and they did it with only one Year 11 girl in the squad.

Lucy Hull and Olivia Thompson were outstanding in defence, conceding 20 fewer goals than their closest rivals, but all 11 squad members played their part.

The girls now go on to represent Lincolnshire in the East Midlands tournament, to be held in Northamptonshire next month.
