Llansantffraid Primary school – Through to the National Netball Urdd !!

by on Apr.27, 2010, under The Family

I guess the title of this post gives it away!!!

 

Today I sat for over two hours…and watched the netball team from Llansantffraid fight their way through to the National Urdd competition to be held in Aberystwyth….amongst them my daughter, Athena.

They played well in the first rounds….securing their place in the semi…..JUST!!!! 

With a bench full of mums holding onto bladders, clutching water bottles….and generally embarrassing the kids….the team up their game and won a convincing semi-final 8-0!!!!!!

onto the final….feeling the pressure on the bench…..it was serious, red-faced…..hot…..and starting to feel shattered (the mums that is!!!) the whistle blew…..it was to be a straight six minutes….no half-time…no second half. (last year we went out at this stage by one goal) could we do it this year????

 

The first net was probably scored in the first minute….”the bench” went ballistic!!!!. The kids played her hearts out….they looked good…and they played faultlessly!!! 2-0………3-0………4-0…….sore throats on the bench!!!!

The whistle blew!!!

 

you would seriously think that it was us “mums” who had played!!!…….group-hug, followed by group-hug…..more hugging…..the kids shook hands and cheered the losing side…..and then they were hugged (much to the embarrassment of some) ….who was more excited the kids or parents?….not sure ;)

 

I have to say the team in “RED” representing Llansantffraid Primary School looked the part, played the part…..and was “simply the best!!”

 

WELL DONE…..and good luck at Aberystwyth!!!!!

 

One VERY proud mum…..X   :)
