Durham netball march on with win over Edinburgh



Durham Netball


Durham’s netballers performed well in a comfortable victory against Edinburgh’s 2nd team. The 56-36 triumph will see Durham move into the next round of the cup competition where they will take on Liverpool John Moores University.

The scoreline could have been much closer had it not been for the excellent work of Anna Simmons who performed admirably at the back, tipping various efforts away expertly to safeguard Durham’s lead.

Maddie Russell, in front of Simmons, intercepted well to aid those behind her, but it was Ollie Blackburn who stole the show with the accuracy of her shooting, creating the twenty-point difference between the sides.
