ST MARY'S Primary School won the Langtree Re-Unites High 5 netball tournament.

The Blues team from the Bideford school clinched the cup without conceding a goal.

Hosted by Re-Unites at Bideford College, the competition attracted 13 teams from primary schools in the Torridge area. All teams played their part in a competitive tournament with Abbotsham Blues, the runners-up, only losing one game, to St Mary's.

Abbotsham Yellows, with eight wins and a draw, clinched the plate while Langtree Primary School were second.The umpires were provided by Langtree Re-Unites and they judged Hartland worthy winners of the fair play trophy.

Organisers thanked Bideford Bridge Trust for funding and St John Ambulance for first aid cover.

Langtree Re-Unites encourage grassroots netball and are keen to recruit some of the players who took part. Players in Year 6 can join the junior section, training on Wednesdays from 7 to 8pm. Those in Years 3, 4 and 5 can join the High 5 section from 6 to 7pm on Wednesdays up to and including July 17.

All abilities are welcome. Training takes place at Great Torrington School. For more information see the website, www.langtreereunites.hitsnetball.co.uk.
