Moorbridge Sports Academy took part in a mainstream Handball Event that was held at Churchill CC, our Sports Academy girls played in their first competitive Handball games against three other teams who play Handball on a regular basis. 

Our girls started very slowly in the first game due to it being their first competitive outing however after a few minutes they were 0-4 down, after a quick team talk on the pitch by a number of our players... they showed a fantastic team ethic in order to get back into the game. After scoring two fantastic goals our girls seemed very excited for the next game, it was clear to see the confidence was growing within the team and they were passing the ball around very well. 

Chloe and Angel showed excellent team work throughout and scored some fantastic goals, as well as another fantastic performance by Kaylee in goal. She saved some very good shots by the opponent and kept the scores down on a number of occasions.

The event was officiated by Tyne Met students who had recently coached our students in late 2018. It was fantastic to take part in such an event and we will be looking forward to more Handball fixtures in the future.
