It is going to be a big weekend for Havering’s young and older sportsmen and women.
The borough’s youngsters will be going for London Youth Games gold at Crystal Palace, while Gidea Park Bowls Club are taking on the Royal Household on the lawns of Windsor Castle as part of their centenary celebrations.
Several teams will head to south London to compete in Europe’s biggest youth sporting event and many will be harbouring hopes of returning home with medals.
Havering’s netball squad has been selected from a host of secondary schools across the borough.
And the under-14 girls have been training hard for the past six weeks with coach Viv Allaway and assistant Siobhan Pearce to make sure they are ready to try and defend the title they won last year.
Havering netball: Grace Oyenuga (Frances Bardsley); Bennie Ben-Ovio (Sanders Draper); Emily Stratton (Coopers); Danielle Nelder (Chafford); Victoria Lavender (St Edwards); Annie Maguire (Coopers); Jess Grove (Marshalls Park); Megan McAuliffe (Coopers); Chloe Szczygiel (Sacred Heart); Christie Stimson (Emerson Park); Daniella Ojutalaya (Sacred Heart); Maisie Howell (Frances Bardsley); Phoebe Menear (Coopers).
