Gibraltar Netball U’17

The Gibraltar Netball Association U’17 Squad travelled  to UK, (Hull) to compete in the Netball European Championships in the Development Section.

The young girls played very highly competitive matches against Switzerland, Malta and Dubai.

Match Scores:

Gibraltar 15 – Dubai 43

Gibraltar 32 – Malta 18

Gibraltar 22 –  Switzerland 38

The girls representing Gibraltar are a young, less-experienced squad and this was evident especially in the first match. However they progressed through the competition well and won the next match which was an excellent result and shows that they can do well. The tournament has been a great learning experience especially as Gibraltar will hold the U17 European Championships next year. The girls will hopefully have more confidence having played at an international tournament previously and achieved great results.

Netball Scotland took the Silver medal in the first division competition at the Netball European Championships in Hull this weekend. Gibraltar have a strong partnership with Netball Scotland and they have been working with Gibraltar Netball with coaching courses, umpiring and helping us achieve a higher level of Netball in Gibraltar. Things are going very well and we are very excited to carry on working with them. It was nice to meet the team and share the experience.

All in all, a great tournament where our young lasses gained a wealth of experience for future competitions.

 

The girls put a lot of hard work into their training and they should all be very proud. A special mentioned should go to the team coaches, Keisha Moreno and Janice Moreno for getting the girls ready for the tournament not only physically but mentally too.
