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.


Year 8


Players: J.Pickles,   J.Mitchell, T.Barnard-White, J.Boseley, E.Leeves, M.Sharif, E.Bonyardi,   I.Stovey, T.Bingham-Thaker
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
