Peebles girls net yet another title

Peebles Netball’s U13 squad became one of the most successful young teams in the club’s history at the weekend, winning the Scottish Youth Cup in fine style.

Playing against tough opposition from Orkney in the final, Peebles ran out 30-13 winners to lift the trophy won by their club-mates last season.

This achievement came on the back of their Scottish Schools’ success in April and, for captain Lilly Carvalho, the victory was all the more significant, as she has been in winning Scottish Schools and U13 Youth Cup squads two years in succession.
