Terrific Turnout at Turnford U12 Tournament


Recently, we hosted our annual U10/U11/U12 tournament with a record number of entries. Sixty-three squads entered from all over the county – coming from as far a field as Tameside and Bury in the North and Poole in Dorset from the South. The weather held out and it was a fantastic day of netball, a tribute to the organisers, the teams, their coaches and supporters.


In the U10 section, which was a round robin, Turnford entered 3 teams. The U10 A and B squads as well as our fantastic U9 A squad. It was a fantastic first introduction to the Turnford tournament for the U9A and U10B squads and both showed great skills and team dynamics.

The U10 A squad but in a fantastic effort and won 11 of their 12 matches. They secured strong wins against: AP Saints, Durham, MK Netters, Brentwood, Crosskeys, Tegate Merlins, Turnford U10b, Turnford U9a, Poole, Hornets, and Tameside. They lost only one match all day, to eventual winners YWCA Bury.

Turnford U10 were worthy runners-up in their first ever Seven a-side tournament. All members of the squad showed skill and determination the whole day and proved that they will be a team to watch over the coming years.

Squad: Keira, Hanel, Darcie, Anna, Sienna, Brooke, Olivia, Alice


Turnford entered 3 teams in the U11 section.

The B and C teams played some excellent netball with the B squad missing going through to the semi final section by 1 goal. The C team won matches 9-1 and 4-1 but lost a few by small margins. But with each game they gained more experience.

The A team played 7 in the group drawing one and winning the rest convincingly. The quarter final was against Hatfield and then the semi against Tegate. Wins in both matches put us through to a final against Hertford Hornets – a rematch of last years final. But the girls were determined and after a shaky start they came back from behind and won the match 7 – 5. A strong all round display of mature netball from Turnfords U11 A team. and Players of the tournament went to:
C team Indya Bowmaker,
B team Frankie Horncastle
A team Mia Cannington

Coach Lyn Cole stated how proud she was of each and every player.

The day started with a bang as the A team stepped on to court to face Wodson Park in their first match. The girls played quick netball and took the match 20-0. Other group games included victories over Bury, Kent, Essex, ASCO and MK Netters and the squad won their group with ease.

In the quarter finals, they came up against local rivals Hornets, and after a close start, they pulled ahead to take the game 11-3. The semi-final saw a match up against Essex Open but fantastic team play saw the girls take the game 11-1.

The final was against Bury who they had played earlier in the day, but the squad were taking no prisoners and again showed maturity in their play, outclassing Bury and taking the game 12-3.

Squad: Sophie Lennon, Abi Hockney, Bella Baylis, Hannah Parkinson, Emily Squires, Neave Wilson, Mia Andrews and Peace Akinyemi

The B team had a mixed day of results coming up against some tough opposition in their group, and narrowly missed out on a quarter final place.

Squad: Marcie Howell, Zoe Wood, Holly May, Polly Watson, Elena Davies, Ellen McGuigan, Grace Best, Megan Whiten, Nina Morjaria and Isabelle Henn

Coach Natalie Richardson stated how excited she was at the prospects for the future of this young talented squad

Terrific Turnout for Turnford U16 Tournament


turn u16

Just over a week ago, on a beautiful sunny Saturday, Turnford staged its annual U16 tournament at Wormley Playing Fields. A total of 65 teams took part from as far afield as Durham in the North and Poole from the South as well as local clubs including Hertford Hornets, Cheshunt, Asco and AbbeyFlyers – this was one of the largest entries that Turnford has ever witnessed in these age groups (U13-U16).

It was a fabulous day for all involved with some absolutely amazing netball played. The club is rightly proud of the day it put on and we hope every club that joined us enjoyed the competition. We look forward to welcoming them all back next year.

Below is the report of the Turnford teams coachessuccess from Head Coach Carole Titmuss. As coach of both the U13 and U16 teams, she had a busy day but was hopeful of success from both of her very talented and hard working squads. As usual they did not fail to deliver:

The U16s were mixed with U15s and Turnford’s U16s showed just why they had taken third spot in the U16 National Club Finals recently. They are indeed a talented bunch taking wins from Henley 11:2, Woodley 13:7, Brookshaw Stuart 18:2, Saffron Hawks 15:1, Abbey Flyers 19:0 and Western Park 15:8. This put them comfortably through to the semi-finals where they faced their own U16B squad. The A squad took the game 15:1.

The final meant a rematch with Henley. This time Henley were determined to give Turnford a good match and at half time the score lay at 5:4. Turnford had to show what they were made of, and perform they did. They did not allow Henley another look at goal as the defence of Zara Everitt, Rebecca Palmer and Izzy Stibbs demonstrated their pedegree. This, coupled with the excellent shooting of Georgina Fisher and Emily Carrington, fed well from the centre court of Georgia Satwick and Jasmine Bowman, meant they lifted the cup 12:4. An excellent display of skilled netball.


The U13s were rightly determined to win their home tournament and displayed that determination and talent all day, brushing aside all competition to end the day unbeaten. Through the rounds they took wins against Durham 11:0, Asco 14:0, Woodley 7:2, Surrey 21:0, Watford Premier 9:3, Hornets 7:2 and Brentwood 12:2. This showed the excellent defence of Jasmine Harvey-Stone , Maddie March, Frankie Baylis and Freya Keohane allowing only 9 goals past them.

This took them through to the Quarter Finals where they met with Weston Park Blades. The shooters Evie Pringle and Sienna Rushton were on form, slotting them in one after the other and with a score of 10:4 they sailed through to the semi Finals meeting with Poole N.C. from Dorset. Here particular mention must be made of the centre court of Katherine Wingfield, Courtney Ferns and Megan Thomas, linking well with defence through to the shooting circle. They worked tirelessly with intensity, not taking their foot of the pedal once and they took the game 8:2.

Going through to the Final, they met with MK Netters from Bedfordshire and this Turnford side were not going to allow any team to spoil their day. Every player played their part in what can only be described as a magnificent array of skilful and mature netball. Giving all spectators a show worthy of watching, The U13 Turnford side lifted the winners cup 11:6.

We’d like to take this opportunity to also thank all of the coaches, committee members, umpires and parents who were up at the crack of dawn setting up BBQs, gazebos and banners, and then those who during the day ran the BBQ, the cake stall, the raffle and the Crazy Catch Comp. We know it ‘takes a village’ and we thank every single one of you!

See you all next year!
