Brentwood’s under-16 girls won the Essex title in the National Schools’ Netball competition recently.

The team showed discipline, tenacity and continuity to triumph in a close-fought contest.

After topping their group they came from two goals down to beat Ursuline by two goals in the semi-finals to set up a meeting with Southend And the two sides traded goals, until Southend moved two ahead by half time.

Brentwood dug deep in the second half to clinch a tense one-goal win, though, and saw captain Faith Furfai named as the player of the tournament, as Zara Philips and Mia Citroen also shone.

Skye Lynch, Sarah Dawe, Lucy Holloway, Anna Reeves, Lauren Burgin and Annie Shaw played their parts and head of netball Annabel Simpson said: “The team deserve huge congratulations for a massive achievement.

“The team are passionate, cohesive, enthusiastic, hard-working and committed to their netball.”
