Division D of the Horsham District Primary Schools Netball League kicked off last week and provided the most closely contested meeting to date. Four teams – Northolmes, Castlewood A, St John’s and Leechpool - finished on eight points as a result of achieving a win and a draw on the night, although St John’s and Leechpool gained their wins by default as a consequence of St Robert Southwell’s late drop out.

St Andrew's School, Nuthurst made a confident start to their C Division campaign in the Horsham District Primary Schools Netball League.

All other teams bar Kingslea will have been pleased to have scored their first win on the night.
