The year 7 Netball Development League Finals were held at Emmanuel School on Thursday 15th March and provided a thrilling finale.
Nottingham Academy qualified to play a previously unbeaten Emmanuel in the final having previously lost to them in the league rounds, however in the final the form book was overturned with a confident display from the Academy team.
The first half was dominated by the team from Sneinton and they quickly went into a 2 - 0 lead that they held until the break. After a motivational half time team talk Emmanuel put great pressure on and dominated territory and as the game went on they pegged back the Academy lead to just 1 goal. But Nottingham Academy dug in to maintain their 1 goal advantage to win the game 4 - 3 and take the City title.
In the bronze play off Top Valley A defeated an enthusiastic Nottingham Girls Academy 6 - 1 with Top Valley B taking 5th place.
