Havering’s under-14 girls claimed bronze in the London Youth Games netball finals at Redbridge at the weekend.

They beat Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Barnet in their group, drew with Kingston, and lost to Redbridge and Hounslow to finish third.

And they edged past Croydon (10-9) in the last 16 to earn a quarter-final tie with Lewisham, which they won 13-8 to reach the last four.

After falling 5-1 down against Hammersmith, they battled back to draw level, only to eventually suffer a 6-5 defeat and miss out on a place in the gold-medal match.

Nonetheless, a bronze medal was deserved reward and coach Viv Allaway said: "It was a great day, the first time the finals had been held at Redbridge and it was excellent.

"The girls all showed excellent skill and determination and I was very proud of them."
