Shooting for the stars, Gisburn Primary School were successful once again at the Lancashire Youth Games netball competition.

The first competition was held at Bowland High School in March, and Gisburn won all their games to see off Grindleton, Bolton by Bowland and Slaidburn and progress to the next round at Hyndburn and Ribble Valley Sports Club in April. The team won two out of their four games and were put through to represent Ribble Valley small schools at the Lancashire Youth Games.

The team arrived at Stanley Park in Blackpool for the Games in May.

Although the weather was not ideal, the players soldiered on through wind and rain, playing many games.

The team won many of their matches, however they did not quite manage to get through to the semi-finals and settled for fifth place, winning a plate in the presentation ceremony.
