THE Clan Netball Club National Premier side hosted their first home fixture and were pleased to welcome Bromley-based Eclipse.

The newly-promoted side had started the season strongly and arrived at High Wycombe unbeaten.

A great match ensued with Clan making an excellent start and winning the first two quarters.

Eclipse re-grouped and started making inroads into the lead through the third and the start of the fourth quarter.

Clan did not panic, steadied themselves and started to get back on top to pull away again and win with a 10-goal margin 59-49.

It has been a great start to the season which means that at this early stage, Clan stands top of the league.

The Under 16s and 14s Regional sides welcomed Swan Netball club from Eastleigh in Hampshire.

The U16s got off to a shaky start, experiencing two injuries in the first quarter, which resulted in people playing out of position.

Swan were a strong physical side and they built a commanding lead, but Clan side did not give up and came back strongly to win the final quarter, eventually losing 35-45.

The U14s game was a fantastic one to watch with both teams very evenly matched.

Swan came out the blocks quickly and, despite most the quarter being goal for goal, a few vital turnovers gave then an early lead 12-18.

Clan re-grouped and really took the game to Swan and fought back to finish the second quarter 25-24 up.

The third quarter saw both teams playing some exceptionally competitive netball and they finished tied on 36-36.

With all to play for in the final quarter and with both teams fighting exceptionally hard, Clan managed to get two vital turnovers at crucial moments to finally win through 47-43.

It was a truly amazing game which had everyone on the edge of their seats.

The U13s Regional side welcomed Berkshire rivals Woodley. Both teams where unbeaten and another very close match commenced.

Clan made an excellent start with exceptional work in defence to win the first quarter 12-7.

A strong team talk from the Woodley coach saw them come out much stronger in the second half to win the quarter and pull back the score to 19-19 all.

Clan came out firing in the third quarter and stamped their authority back on the match to go into the fourth quarter 27-24 ahead.

Unfortunately nerves and a lack of composure, combined with immense Woodley, pressure meant the team lost their way and lost the match 31-34.

Whilst disappointed to lose, the U13’s had shown some excellent play to take forward to their next match.

The Clan Tartan U13s side maintained their winning ways to beat Marlow Kites Spitfires 19-11.
