On Tuesday the Thorn Grove Netball team played in the Stockport Legacy Games Netball final at Bramhall High School.
The competition, a gathering of the top teams from across Stockport, saw the local heat winners battling it out to see who would represent the borough at the Greater Manchester Games.
Our year five and six team, had done brilliantly to reach the finals and, despite their lack of experience, approached the tournament with determination and a huge amount of skill.
They performed magnificently in the sweltering conditions and managed to finish fifth out of the ten finalists.
It was a superb performance from players who had only just begun to develop their Netball skills.
As part of the opening ceremony the children were able to meet Olympic, commonwealth and world 4x400m medalist Kelly Massey, who opened the games with an inspiring speech.
