History Netball Triumph

Fresh from their outstanding 22-8 win against PGCE, History Netball are training hard for the remainder of their pre-Christmas matches. Currently third in the league, captain Charlotte Peacock is leading the team to victory after victory with only one loss so far in the season. She tells the Manchester Historian:

“Being netball captain this year is both a challenging and highly rewarding experience. Training each week requires planning to set fun new drills and tasks to enhance our team dynamics and performance in matches. After great success in the last academic year, we are continuing to perform well in matches, currently holding third place within the division. Our most impressive win to date saw a goal difference of 14 points. We hope to continue in our success in remaining matches, working our way up to the top spot! A close knit team of twenty-five players, it is a pleasure to play with such lovely girls every week.”

Although History had two teams last year, the concentration of talent into one team is clearly proving to be successful. They next play Richmond Park on Wednesday 23rd November, so watch this space for more team news!
