Year seven squad enjoy excellent season

Dagenham Park’s year seven netball squad have been celebrating an outstanding season.

The squad won all of their matches in the Borough League, except one, with Barking Abbey proving their toughest opponents.

And their A and B teams went on to win all of their group matches at the Barking & Dagenham netball tournament.

The B team fought hard against All Saints, but had to settle for fourth place at the end of the competition, while the A team did battle with Barking Abbey once more.

There was nothing between the two rival teams in the final, which ended in a 4-4 draw.

But Dagenham Park dug deep in the last two minutes of the extra period to claim a winning goal and the right to represent the borough at the London Youth Games finals at Crystal Palace on March 22.

Teacher Georgia Mellors said: “These year sevens have made an exceptional start at Dagenham Park and the PE department and the rest of the school are very proud of all they have achieved.”

Dagenham Park squad: Mariyum Yatoo, Yesmin Lahmami, Chloe Winner, Denise Timublas, Chanel Kyei, Marta Russinielo, Maisy Arnold, Daphne Agyemang, Patricia Da Costa Peira, Elizabeth Jackson, Kamille Baliukonyte, Megan Keating, Huda Khalfaoui, Isha Njie, Taiwo Ajayi.

*Dagenham Park’s year eight squad have also had a good season, finishing top of the Borough League Division Two table.
