Yarm School’s Under-16s and Under-19s netball squads have qualified for the National Schools Netball Competition where they will represent the North


Alex Elwine, 18, a pupil at Yarm School and team captain of the U19s squad, said: “We wanted to represent the Tees Valley in the best possible way by reaching the national finals, but knew that it would be a challenge with tough competition to beat.
