Chester NC & Magic NC won the ENG U13-U15 Netball Shield National Finals after dominant performances at the WLV Gym in Walsall. This event starting in January and both teams played three games on route to reaching the semi finals. Both teams in the semi-finals recorded fantastic wins to set themselves up as the favourites going into the finals.
In the final, Chester NC ran up a convincing first quarter win to put the game out of sight early on against Hertford Hornets, but Magic NC had to work harder against Beacons NC who just wouldn't give up and it took to the end of the 3rd quarter for Magic NC to get the score to a position where they could relax a little going into the final quarter.
This result for Chester NC meant they won their second national ENG tournament, with the last one being the ENG U14 Netball Cup back in 2019 and Magic NC recorded their first ever national tournament success which capped off a successful year for the Sussex based side who had won the ENG U16 Netball Cup Southern Finals earlier on in the year.
Well done to the rest of the teams who competed and we look forward to seeing everyone compete again when this event returns in January 2023.
