DENHOLM Primary School girls’ netball team has taken home another trophy with their second consecutive win at the Border Primary Schools Netball Finals held last Thursday at the Queen’s Leisure Centre in Galashiels.

The event was the culmination of five area competitions which saw the two winning teams from each brought together to play for the overall title.

The sides were split into two pools of five with the winners of one playing the runners-up of the other in two tense semi-finals.

Denholm was pitted against Parkside (Jedburgh) and Chirnside faced Kingsland, with Denholm and Kingsland progressing to the final where the former proved too strong for their Peeblesshire opponents.

Ewan Jackson, chief executive of Borders Sport and Leisure, said: “This was a brilliant event and the standard of competition was really high. On behalf of our Active Schools Team, I’d like to express our thanks to all the PE teachers, school staff and parents for their great work in preparing the pupils for the competition.”

Denholm are proving hard to beat on the netball circuit, having lifted the Small Schools title for the last two years.
