DEESIDE U12s booked their place at the national Inter Clubs tournament in Bangor, in May, after sweeping to success at the regional qualifier in the city on the weekend.

The Deeside youngsters were unbeaten throughout the competition, demolishing Walis Seconds 21-0 before also beating their first team 6-2 in the early rounds.

They then powered to a 21-0 win over North Dragon Flares before edging past Holywell with a 9-5 scoreline to set up a semi-final clash with Mold.

An 11-2 win over their Flintshire rivals confirmed Deeside U12’s place in the final where they secured an excellent 16-3 victory against Rhosnesni.

Back at home in the Aura Junior Netball League, a spirited Deeside Dimples U9s side weren’t quite able to match the success of their older counterparts as they were overcome 6-2 by Mold Ravens.

Deeside Dice, meanwhile, picked up their first win since mid-December after Nieve McCulloch helped her U10s team to a stunning 10-1 triumph against Ellesmere Port Storm.

In the U12s league, third placed Deeside Dragonflies ran out convincing 20-2 winners against North Dragon Flares with Sophie Woosey picking up her second consecutive player of the match award to keep her team within touching distance of the top two.

The Deeside Doves and Dixies teams were both unfortunate to lose out in their U13s games against Rhosnesni Rooks and Rators respectively.

Despite leading 6-4 at half-time, a storming Rooks comeback condemned the Doves to a 12-9 defeat, while the Raptors eventually edged to a 13-8 win against Deeside Dixies after a tight game.

Charlotte Sellings starred in U14s Group A action as she picked up an unprecedented two player of the match awards, for both the Deeside DJs and Dominoes teams.

The youngster helped push the DJs closer to claiming the U14 league title as they battled to a hard-fought 16-12 triumph over a stubborn Rhosnesni Raiders team. She excelled again for the Deeside Dominoes who raced to a stunning 36-14 success against Holywell Halos to stay second.

In Group B, meanwhile, Deeside Darts recovered from a slow start against the Ellesmere Port Blades to record a 16-10 win, with Courtney Sullivan claiming player of the match.
