Gidea Park College pupils were celebrating at the Brentwood netball tournament recently.

The girls won their division on the day and went on to finish fifth out of 12 teams in the overall standings in what was described as “a wonderful achievement”.

Following that success, some members of the squad were fortunate enough to enjoy a trip to the Copper Box Arena to watch a Super League match as Surrey Storm beat Hertfordshire Mavericks 63-48.

Gidea Park’s boys were in action at the Brentwood football tournament and bounced back from two narrow losses to Ursuline and St Mary’s to draw their next match with Grafton, after goalkeeper Aryan Chandel saved a penalty.

Excellent goals from Jarnail Baines and Laolu Agunbiade helped them to a 3-3 draw in their first match of the afternoon, before Baines, Daniel Akpabio and Simbo Femi-Olusanya all found the net to ensure they won their last match of the day.

Captain Malachi Osinloye showed plenty of determination in leading the side and a spokesperson said: “All the boys enjoyed their trip to Brentwood and are getting ready for their inter-school house football competition.”

Gidea Park: Aryan Chandel, Taran Raju, Simbo Femi-Olusanya, Rhys Kuponiyi, James Kuzsel, Jarnail Baines, Laolu Agunbiade, Chinedum Okey-Nzewuihe, Ozair Hussain, Daniel Akpabio, Malachi Osinloye.
