A Gift of Warmth for the U19 Netball Squad

Truro School U19 Netball squad were recently gifted with brand new bench jackets for use in the Regional Tournaments.


The squad were runners up in the County Tournament in October 2013 which, once again, ensured they qualified for the Regional Finals in Bournemouth earlier this month.


Both of these tournaments are always played outside, with last year’s temperatures around zero. Having previously played at these Regional Tournaments, Mr and Mrs Hughes, from CESA Languages, whose daughter is Rebecca, recognised the need for the squad to be kept warm in the harsh conditions.


Sonya Newton, Assistant Director of Sport, said: “Very kindly, Mr and Mrs Hughes agreed to sponsor a set of bench jackets for the squad. The girls were absolutely delighted and certainly kept themselves warm at this year’s tournament. A huge thank you for their generosity.”


The picture shows this year’s first team squad in their jackets at the regional finals on 25 January 2014.
