The Durham team competes for the first time as the Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation, which was formed from the merger of Durham School and The Chorister School.

Mark Bedworth, Master of Sport, said: “It is the cream of school netball coming together to compete for the top prize in this highly competitive sport.

“Our girls are up against much bigger schools in the south.

“They are a hardworking and determined team and we know they will represent the North East to the best of their abilities.”
