Netball Match Report
School 28 v OCs 27
Old Cats afternoon saw some of the biggest names in Caterham Netball history return to take on the current 1st VII. It was an absolute delight to see these girls return, as they were amongst the most talented, most hardworking, and generally all-around absolute superstars that we have had the privilege to work with over the years.
The match was of a fantastic standard, with the Old Cats showing that they have lost none of their netballing talend, as they fell right back into their old combinations enabling them to show their skill and their flare. It was a goal for goal game, with the 1st VII just sneaking it right at the last moment to win the game 28-27.
As expected, this combination of girls – both current 1st VII and Old Cats – played the match in exactly the right spirit, as they were competitive, determined to put out their best performance, but most of all they were just happy to be taking part in this celebration of Caterham Netball. Well done to everyone who played, and thank you very much to the Old Cats for making the effort to return – it was just brilliant to see you all.
Old Cats: Hannah Owern, Olivia Tikare, Maya Pardew, Elise Knowles-Cutler, Abbie Barrett, Emily thompson, Natalie Bishop, Katie Lloyd

OCs 2 v School 1
The latest instalment of the Old Cats reunion competition resulted in a close, well-contested hockey game, with the Old Cats coming away with a 2-1 win.
In front of the largest crowd of the season the 1st XI played their most composed game so far, moving the ball quickly and shutting down their opposition’s space. Strong performances from Kensey in goal, Criscuolo in the forward line and a goal for Salem on his 1st XI debut were, in the end, not enough. The Old Cats’ determination to win and some excellent skills from playmaker Terry saw them over the line for the victory. Thank you to Mr Quinton and Mr Todd for umpiring what was a great game of hockey. The 1st XI are already looking forward to next year’s match.
Old Cats: Matt Terry, Isaac Quinton, Louis Brown, Theo Boutell, Ben Prego, James Dyke, Oli Young, Mark Chatfield, Sam Saunders, Sam Thorpe, Oscar Ingrassia
