Bramcote College –East Midlands Netball Champions.

Bramcote College’s U16 Netball Team certainly didn’t let the awful wind and rain stop them this weekend at Emmanuel School as they competed in the East Midlands netball regional finals.

It was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking to watch (and some people couldn’t watch) but we all should have had more faith as Bramcote College ran out 10-6 winners. Continue reading
