OR vs the School Netball 2024

OR and students netballers hit the court for an exciting and nail-biting match.

On Saturday 20th April, we welcomed ORs and their guests to Roedean for the annual ORs vs the School Netball match. The day wasn't tropical - one might say "crisp", but the sun was shining and the wind not too bad.

We spoke to Head of Games and Netball, Amelia Hammond, who gave us a great match report. 

It was a lovely morning for our Old Roedeanians to come back and visit us. It was a very tightly contested first quarter with the OR team taking a 3-goal lead straight away. The current 1st team then stepped up a gear and managed to pull ahead to win the first quarter 7-4. The OR team played with great spirit and determination, linking up well despite being a squad  from many different past year groups! The final score was 39-17 to our current 1st team. Well done to all who played, it was a fantastic occasion and we hope to see all  the ORs back next year!

It was lovely to meet a number of parents who came to watch, as well as friends and family of ORs. The Headmistress, Niamh Green, also joined us, having finished her stint on the MNDA fundraising walk with Year 8. As ever the School provided a super match tea, which was held in "Horizons" in Keswick House (formerly Junior House).

The OR Team this year was:

  • Amelia Balthazor (No. 1, 2011-18) - Captain
  • Harriet Clifton-Sprigg (No. 2, 2009-17)
  • Lea Donovan (No, 3, 2014-16 & Current Staff)
  • Ashlin Humphreys (No. 1, 2000-06)
  • Zarbanu Malekshahi (No. 2, 2012-19)
  • Emma Rice (No. 3, 2021-23)
  • Lara Sellins (No. 1, 2015-22)

Thank you all for playing - and we are looking forward to next year!
