Netball Team Wins Urdd Plate

Published: 20.01.2023 ( a year ago )

Our very talented Year 7 and Year 8 Netball Team have won the prestigious Urdd Eryri Plate at the Urdd Under 13 Netball Tournament, beating a raft of North Wales schools for the accolade.

Urdd Gobaith Cymru is a National Voluntary Youth Organisation with over 55,000 members between the ages of eight to 25.

The tournament that took place in Bangor didn’t start so well as the team lost against Ysgol Friars, but then were victorious in all of their other games against Ysgol Ogwen, Ysgol Nantlle, Ysgol David Hughes and they won by one goal against Ysgol Y Creuddyn!

“It was neck and neck against Ysgol Y Creuddyn, they took the lead at one stage but then our team managed to claw it back,” said a delighted Elle Jones, Head of Year 8 and Year 9 and PE teacher.

“I’m very proud of them as a team they work so well together, and also recently won the Urdd Basketball plate, and are about to take part in a Rugby 7’s tournament in Rosslyn Park, London.”

Well done ladies! St David’s College is very proud of you and we are looking forward to seeing what you get up to next.
