Primary school teams from across the area travelled to Long Field Academy last Wednesday to battle it out in a High 5 Netball Competition.

After some hard-fought games the competition ended with an all-Vale of Belvoir final as Stathern A and Long Clawson went head-to-head.

The decisive match went into extra time where Clawson secured the win, scoring a golden goal after three minutes.

The school will go on to represent the area in the LRS Summer Championships.

The event was supported by Melton Marvels Netball Club who are offering Year 6 pupils the chance to learn seven-a-side netball.

The sessions take place on July 1 and 8 from 6 to 7pm at Long Field Academy Sports Hall.
