Newark U15 Girls headed to Chesterfield yesterday to take on Burnley West Park and Castleford in a three way semi final for a place in the National Final at Lichfield later this month.
First up for the Girls they took on Burnley West Park and as expected it was a close and tough encounter but Newark finished strongly with an additional score in the last minute to record the win 15 points to 5.
With a short rest between games, Castleford, the reigning National Champions stood between the Newark Girls and a place in the National Final. Again as last year a very physical side from Yorkshire came at the Newark girls, but came up against a side who weren’t willing to give an inch. Newark eventually came out on top again 17-7 becoming Northern Champions for the first time.
National Semi Final and Northern Final – the girls from Newark stepped up their effort, commitment and determination to overcome their disappointment of twelve months ago. It is a fantastic achievement and we wish them the very best of luck in the Final later this month!
