Under 16 Girls lose to Tameside in the  National Finals in Sheffield

Ashcombe Under 16 girls lost 3-0 to Tameside at the finals of the National Competition  held in Sheffield on Sunday 22nd April. The game was played in front of a crowd of over 300 people at The English Institute of Sport. The team played well but were certainly overawed by the size of the venue and crowd and the nerves showed in their performance. The volleyball was of a very high standard and the players are all ready to train harder for next years competitions.
