|In their first game at Bushey Meads the year 7 team faced private girls school Belmont in a friendly fixture.
The girls were slightly overwhelmed in the first quarter withBelmont showing some superior play and deservedly taking a 3-0 lead. The second half was much better for the Bushey Meads squad; they fought hard and secured a 2-1 half victory. Although the end result was a defeat thiswas a really encouraging start for the team.

|The year 8 team also playing their first match of the season showed some good passing skills and at times some excellent shooting. They again started slowly and took a while to get into the game, but in the middle 2 quarters they really pulled their game around and went into the final quarter with the score at 11all. The final quarter was end to end but unfortunately the Belmontgirls secured a 16-14 victory. Bushey Meads should be commended on their play and we look forward to success in the league matches that begin next week|
