Redden Court pupils celebrated a basketball double against their Havering rivals last week.

The year nine boys beat a strong St Edwards team, 32-20, in their final at Abbs Cross after a morale-boosting win over Sweyne Park the night before.

They will now represent the borough in the London Youth Games, while also chasing Haverring and Essex Cup titles.

Redden Court entered three squads in the under-14 girls tournament and the A team won all five of their matches - Emily Roofe scoring just before the buzzer in their final match – to be crowned borough champions.

The B team beat Hall Mead and drew with Marshalls Park and Sacred Heart, as Grace Pickford impressed through.

And the C team also managed a win and two draws, with Callie Ince scoring well and Niamh Duffy fractured her wrist.

Boys: Stephen Banham-Scott, Jack Duggins, Alan Goddard, Tom Sandon, Dan Parker, Connor Hartwell, Charlie Haddon, Jed Roofe, Enock Sagonile, Dan Ogoro, Dan Francis.

Redden Court’s year nine girls continued their fine form on the netball court with a double over Frances Bardsley.

The A team maintained their unbeaten record with an emphatic 25-1 win, while the B team celebrated a 13-4 victory.

Squads, A: Scarlett Jacks, Emily Roofe, Holly Nash, Tayler Martin, Lucy Eost, Amy Pinkney, Katrina Brown.

But the second team fared better, drawing twice and losing twice.

Katie Hawkes led by example in their midfield, making crucial tackles and netting a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw.
