Manchester and District Netball Tournament
Saturday 23 September 2017
Venue: Bury Grammar Schools
Four teams were involved in the tournament. The U13 and U14 teams competed in the U14 age group and the U15 and U16 teams in the U16 age group.
In the U14 section, the Bury teams competed against St.Gabriels, Altrincham Grammar school, Wright Robinson High School as well as each other. The morning finished with Bury U13 and Bury U14 tied on points.
This meant the winner and runner position came down to goal difference with the U14 squad just pipping the U13 squad to the winning slot.
Well done to both teams and another excellent performance.

The closest game of the morning and producing some of the best netball came about when the Bury U15 and U16 squads came up against each other. It was a tense and hard fought battle but the U15 squad came out on top winning 10-7. This resulted in the U15 squad winning the tournament overall.
