No wonder these King's Junior School netballers are smiling - they had an unbeaten season as under-13s.

They won all six matches against schools from all over East Anglia, scoring a total of 133 goals while their opponents netted only 62 in total.

"They have had a fantastic season," said their coach Amanda Maton, head of King's Junior School girls' games.

It follows an unbeaten 2005 season when King's under-12s won six matches and drew one.

"In total, over the past two years our shooters have scored a total of 312 goals and our opponents have scored only 97," said Mrs Maton.
