TWO junior netballers from Stretham Netball Club - Emma Lowe and Katie Falconer - are riding high after being selected to join the Cambridgeshire under-14 Netball Academy.

The two girls - one from Stretham and the other from Haddenham - are members of a highly successful junior section of a club that has been going for well over three years, and they attended trials with over 60 other girls.

Emma and Katie will undertake 10 weeks of intensive training at Comberton Village College fortnightly from September, and are being coached by Janette Sadler on Wednesday evenings.

Primary school children have their own sessions at Stretham recreation ground on a Wednesday from 4.30-5.30pm in term time only. Girls any older will be part of the adult training at Wicken recreation ground from 7.30-9.00pm all year round. Any juniors or adults wishing to get into netball can contact Caroline Falconer on 07904435515 for more details.
