CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITH High School’s year nine netball team performed superbly to finish runners-up in the Derbyshire Championships last week.

Inspired by the success of the school’s year 11 team, they won a fiercely fought semi-final to knock out one of the favourites, before losing to Trent College in the final.

They will now go on to represent Derbyshire in the regional finals in Northampton in January.

Captained by Grace Tinkler, the team has gone from strength to strength since year seven and is undefeated in the High Peak area for the past two years.
