“Dunrossness had one team entered into the Primary Netball League and were put into the South League. Originally we were scheduled to have one session in December (cancelled due to school shutting) and the other in January (cancelled due to weather). However, our team completely stepped up to the plate and competed on Thursday 14th and Monday 18th February.

On the 14th, we played in Sandwick against Cunningsburgh, losing 8-1, and Hamnavoe, winning 4-0. Coach Ruth believes it was just nerves showing against the tall P7 team from Cunningsburgh. Well done to come back from a defeat to win the second match! There was great play from everyone in both of those matches, particularly Becca, Carla, Hannah and Alex. Then there was time for some fun games with the three teams mixed up, which allowed everyone to play with different people and in different positions.

On the 18th, we played in Scalloway against Whiteness, losing 3-2, Scalloway, winning 3-2, and Sound Blue, losing 6-0. Again, the team just struggled against the height of the Sound Blue team, but did so well in the other two matches. The coaches were really impressed with the versatility of our players this day, with special mention to Ruby as Goal Keeper.

The standard of play showed the potential in this young team for next year!

Whiteness and Sound Blue move on to the finals, coming first and second in our league. However, Dunrossness came equal third and we are absolutely delighted!”

  1. I was chuffed to catch the last match. I was very impressed by our team. They covered the court well and had some impressive passing.
    It is encouraging that we had pupils from P5-7, where the other schools are mainly represented by (very tall) P7s. They showed good sportsmanship and all tried their best.
    Well done to the team and their coaches!
