CRANHAM pupils won the annual King's Worcester's primary schools netball tournament.

Nine schools took part with youngsters from Tetbury Drive-based Cranham beating Lyppard Grange in the final.

Each team was assigned a coach from the King’s senior netball squad to provide tips and choose a player of the day.

King’s director of netball Emma McKenzie said: “As netball continues to grow in popularity it’s so exciting to see so much enthusiasm and enjoyment of the sport within our local primary schools.

"We enjoyed some exceptional play during the course of the afternoon and all teams displayed a brilliant attitude towards the game.”

Sally Banks, PE co-ordinator at Cranham, said: “Tournaments like these provide a fantastic opportunity for young players to test their skills and develop their bond as a team.

"We faced some tough competition so we were absolutely thrilled to win the trophy.

"We’d like to thank King’s for a fantastic afternoon and look forward to defending our title next year.”

Cherry Orchard, Nunnery Wood, Oldbury Park, Pitmaston, St Barnabas, St George’s RC and Whittington also competed.
