Following our largest Scottish Schools Cup competition to date, we were delighted to welcome our 24 school finalists for two days of exceptional netball at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility to crown our Scottish Schools champions 2018/19.
All finals matches were of an extremely high standard and it was great to see the players giving their all for every minute of play!
Regardless of the outcome, making it to the final is a tremendous achievement, not only for the players but for the dedicated supporters that helped them along the way, from teachers to parents, coaches, umpires, – everyone!
On Thursday we welcomed our S1-S3 Bronze and Silver finalists and what amazing games they were! With so many close games our last game of the day (S3 Silver Final) ended with extra time!
