JUNIOR netball teams from Deeside enjoyed a happy ending to their 2019 seasons, with one side lasting an entire campaign without being beaten.

Deeside DJs rounded off a remarkable unbeaten season with Charlotte Sellings helping her team to a 29-8 victory over North Dragon Burners.

The result means that the DJs finish their domestic campaign with an extraordinary record of 20 wins, 1 draw and a goal difference of +406.

Following close behind the DJs, in second-place, were the Deeside Dominoes who concluded their season with a 38-6 rout against Mold – a scoreline which brings their total number of league goals scored to a phenomenal 638, a league high.

With the DJs and Dominoes recording a fantastic first and second place finish for Deeside in the U14 league, it is now hoped that they will recreate their form at the inter club finals in May.

In Under-13s action, third-placed Deeside Diamonds battled a Holywell Hedgehogs side who were targeting a victory to give them the title of league winners.

The Diamonds fought valiantly but ultimately succumbed to a narrow 17-13 defeat, which left them with a point to secure third place.

Deeside Doves finished just a point behind the Diamonds in the U13 league after beating Rhosnesni Raptors 26-13 in their final game, with Charlotte Jones putting in a particularly impressive performance.

Freya Thomas was handed the player of the match award in the Dots’ 8-0 win over Wrexham U11s to continue the good streak of results for teams from Deeside.

Deeside Dice U10s faced a fixture double-header which got off to the worst start after a 10-0 loss against Rhosnesni. But the side regrouped, and came out 17-1 winners in their second match, against Holywell.

The Dimples narrowly missed out on an Under-9s win over Ellesmere Port, with the North Wales team slipping to an agonising 4-3 defeat.

Meanwhile, in the Greater Manchester Junior League, Deeside U14s were left heartbroken by defeat to Rivington in a league deciding clash between the two unbeaten sides.

After a tight game, Rivington eventually claimed a 55-48 win to claim the Division 2 title, and to leave Deeside in second.

A determined Deeside U13s team played their penultimate League 2 fixture against YWCA Bury B but couldn’t prevent a 49-31 defeat. The team now face league leaders North Dragons on April 7.

Deeside picked up a valuable and comfortable 40-7 win over Denton in their Under-12s clash, with their final game against Trafford B also coming this weekend.
