SCHOOLS GRAB ST HELENS NETBALL SPOT
TWO St Helens schools have netted the chance to represent the borough in this summer’s Merseyside Youth Games.
Ashurst Primary School defeated Legh Vale Primary School in the final of the ‘High Fives’ netball tournament staged at Edge Hill’s Sporting Edge complex in Ormskirk
and both teams will now feature in the annual July event held on the Wirral.
The tournament, which saw 32 teams participate, was organised by St Helens Council and Edge Hill Sports Studies degree students as part of their Development of Sports Programmes module.
Student Gemma Watton said:- “Myself, Martyn Revis, Andy Prickett, Anna Kelly and Michael Gilsenan have put a lot of time and effort went into ensuring that the proceedings ran as smoothly as possible and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Every team was well supported and we wish Ashurst and Legh Vale the best of luck in the Youth Games.”
