London Netball Academy's High 5 squad face the camera


Brent’s London Netball Academy is celebrating the achievements of their High 5 squad.

Snow forced a tournament to be postponed earlier in the year, but they made up for it at the rescheduled event.

The team, which includes new members Amy, Cami, Balavarshini and Ronya, had two tough matches against Ruislip-based Evoluion and Osterley’s Grasshoppers.

Their coach said: “The tournament was such a great experience and for the girls to actually win both matches, captained by Xarina was incredible for them.

“The contribution of the new members has strengthened the existing team and with only two fixtures before the finals in May the girls cannot wait to have the chanec to come up against teams we lost to or drew with earlier in the season.

“The hard work and energy in the team is excellent and the girls are willing to work for themselves and each other. We have so much talent in the squad and everyone is playing their part.”
