Netballers from Garstang Community Academy took to the courts and stormed to the finals of the annual Wyre and Fylde District Netball tournament.

The Year 9 squad scored back-to-back victories in the round-robin event to earn their place against Arnold KEQMS in a nailbiting final, the AKS narrowly taking the title after winning 6-4.

Players representing 14 schools across the district descended on Blackpool’s Stanley Park for the competition

Team player Lauren Hull said: “Coming runners up is such an amazing achievement for a small school and on behalf of the team we would like to thank Miss Rainbow for her dedication and hard work in training us.’’
