The latest news from the London Netball Academy
London Netball Academy celebrated on Sunday afternoon following the success of three teams walking away with wins.
The club’s under-19 team impressed in a 28-8 friendly victory over a team from the Harrow Back to Netball programme.
In the under-14 section, LNA and Hemel Hempstead-based club Shelly fought tirelessly throughout the match and were tied up for most of each quarter.
Attacking players Nikita Haria and Charlize McFarlane were repositioned into defence, which made a significant impact to the game.
It was a nail-biting last quarter, but the whistle went with LNA winning 16-15.
LNA’s under-11 team, meanwhile, took on Radlett-based JNA, but with only six players available, it was always going to be a tough match.
To their credit, the youngsters put their lack of players to one side and by half time LNA were leading 6-2.
The six girls performed superbly, especially with no substitutes to give them a break when tired.
Despite training since the summer term, the match was a debut for Lizzie Wortsman who was fantastic at wing attack, feeding the ball around the circle and into the shooters.
Captained by Xarina Kothari, the under-11s’ hard work was rewarded with a 10-4 victory.
LNA under-11s: Wijaytilake, Kothari, Gravesande, Lawrence, Wortsman, McFarlane.
