Last year saw the Chiseldon Netball Team enter the Swindon Primary High 5 League for the first time! Training very hard Tuesday after-school to put their skills into practice on the court, Chiseldon had a fantastic and exciting season both in training and in their matches!

 

Looking to repeat our success again this year, we will be entering the league once more to build upon our progress from last season, training once again 3:30-4:30 Tuesday after school. We will play schools across Swindon, hoping to secure our place once again at the top of the table and secure our position in the district tournament!

 

On this page you will find all the information you require regarding training information, fixtures, results, and match reports.

 

Here's to another fantastic netball season at Chiseldon Primary!

 

Chiseldon Primary 2015/2016 Match Reports:

Holy Family

After their debut entry into the Swindon Primary High 5 League, Chiseldon were unsure what to expect having only ever played competitive games between themselves at club. Our first match was against Holy Family at their School on a sunny Thursday afternoon. An excited Chiseldon got the game well under way moving quick across the court and doing their best to block any attack from the opposition. An early goal from the home team did not act to deter our players who battled tirelessly to bring the score level after a fantastic shot and some well worked passes! Each quarter bought new challenges and as each player rotated their position they each brought a fresh outlook and energy to the game. Having used the first few quarters to establish themselves, Chiseldon entered the final quarter 7-4 up! Determined to keep their lead and consolidate the fantastic play and sportsmanship they had shown so far they worked together as a unit to stop Holy Family progressing up the pitch and managed to score a further 2 goals, with the final whistle awarding the deserved winners the score of 9-4! A fantastic Debut for Chiseldon Netball team and a massive well done to all those who took part!

Covingham Park A

After such a successful first outing as the newly established Chiseldon Primary Netball Team, we were raring to host our visitors, Covingham Park A, at our court. Knowing what to expect we went into the game with a more informed knowledge about our positions, movement, and what we could achieve as a team. Putting into practice all that we had trained, the defence worked hard to mark and cover the solid Covingham attacking team. After some fantastic interceptions, Chiseldon managed to work the ball up the pitch, reaching the D, where it was fed smoothly to the GS, who without hesitation put it through the net! A fantastic start! Covingham responded with some speedy and swift movement on and off the ball to retaliate and bring themselves level. Through the next few quarters the equally matched teams battled it out with both teams coming level, taking the lead, and repeating, until Chiseldon finally broke the stalemate to come to a convincing 11-9 lead as they entered the last quarter of the game. Desperate to maintain the scoreline, the centre and defensive partnership showed huge strength in tracking up and down the pitch, blocking a determined Covinghams efforts to increase their goals. Using their quick passing to move around the opposition, we were able to keep the game in our attacking half and worked as a unit to extend our lead even further! Responding valiantly, Covingham were able to score a few more before the final whistle, but fortunately for us it wasn’t enough to overtake, and the final score was 16-9 to Chiseldon!

Covingham Park B

Looking to build upon their success of previous games, the focus for Chiseldon today was not to look at sheer volume of goals they could score, but to work on their technique and passing as a unit, how they defend their goal, and movement across the court. Putting a focus on these soon led to Chiseldon taking on an early lead away at Covingham against a second team of the same school played last week. All of our hard work paid off as despite only playing as a team for the past few months, we appeared as a well-established and well-oiled team. With goals coming thick and fast for Chiseldon, we mixed up our rotations giving everyone an opportunity to try out a different position. Covingham Park B put in some fantastic displays of defence and passing, never giving up or ceasing in their efforts at their home pitch. The final quarter saw Chiseldon dominate once more, increasing the score line to 21-0 as the final whistle blew! A massive well done for not only a huge amount of goals score, but for an amazing display of netball and keeping a clean sheet for the entire game!

Wiltshire Finals

After such a successful first season and coming joint top of their league table, Chiseldon were delighted to learn they had qualified for the Wiltshire finals seeing the top 2 from each league district attending. With 4 games to play against 4 very experienced teams, Chiseldon knew they were in for a challenging (but fun!) day.

 

Each game put our strength, speed, and accuracy to the test, well matched in each encounter. Losing an overall 3 out of our 4 games, and winning 1, the Chiseldon team were not deterred, learning valuable lessons from eachfixture which they would then put into practice. Some fantastic displays of teamwork, passing, shooting, and determination, allowed us to come home with a real sense of achievement and a fantastic experience having played some of the best schools in Swindon!
