SSP Tri-Golf Tournament, Highfields
Sainsbury’s School Games High Five County Netball Finals
Tuesday 16th May 2017
After winning the Cluster event and then the Partnership tournament, Osmaston CE Primary School qualified for the County Final, held at Derby Arena on the 16th May 2017, representing Rural Derbyshire. The standard of netball was extremely high, resulting in very close games that were played in a very good spirit, but competitively.
Osmaston CE faced St. Andrews first, winning comfortably 4-1, which settled a few nerves! The team continued to play superbly, winning the next three games against Glebe, Willington and Bishop Lonsdale.As a result, Osmaston faced Loscoe in the semi-final. This was a very close game, but Osmaston CE came through to take victory 1-0.
The final was against Oakwood School, last year’s champions. Osmaston CE went ahead 3-1, playing brilliantly. However, nerves kicked in, and Oakwood managed to level the score at 3-3. After a few tense minutes, Osmaston found that winning goal, to win the competition and be crowned Derbyshire County High 5 Champions 2017.
A huge well done to the team:
Henrietta Stock-Clarke (Captain)
Thank you also to Miss V.Clarke for taking the team and managing them on the day, and also to their coach and teacher, Mrs L Simpson-Allsop.
We were delighted to be presented with two awards for the second year running at the Derbyshire School's Sports Association; Primary Champion Small School and Primary Champion Overall School.
This means we were the top school for sport out of all the Primary Schools in Derby City and Derbyshire in 2015/16. It really is a tremendous achievement and we are very proud.
