10th April Netball Match Report

Last night, in a display of sheer dominance, the SelBorne To Play team triumphed with an astonishing *20-goal haul, leaving WFW in their wake with a regrettable zero on the scoreboard. It seems senior clerk Darren Madle‘s rousing call to arms, to “Losing is not an option”, set the tone for an evening of unyielding determination and triumph at any cost.

A quick warm-up, tactical discussion and encouragement from Charlie Leppington, our Head of Marketing and Business Development & Cheersquad, put us in good stead for an excellent game. This week, Matthew Thompson gave another notable performance, transitioning seamlessly from pupil to netball virtuoso (and now practising pupil who welcomes instruction across the full spectrum of Chambers’ practice areas, including: title disputes; business tenancies; possession proceedings; the Electronic Communications Code; freehold covenants; easements and profits; escheat and bona vacantia). Unanimously selected to take on the pivotal Center position, Thompson’s rapid mastery of the sport stands as a testament to his unwavering dedication to the team.

In attack, Brandy Forrester, our indefatigable fees manager and pocket rocket, blazed a trail across the center court, seamlessly evading defenders and orchestrating plays with remarkable effectiveness. Rosamund Baker, the chalk to Brandy’s cheese, was effortlessly composed in her role as Wing Attack and navigated the chaos of the court with unruffled ease.

Meanwhile in defence, Ellie Vickery made her debut appearance for SelBorne To Play. Our newest junior tenant proved to be a stalwart presence under the net as Goal Keeper, consistently securing rebounds and taking the backline passes like a seasoned professional. Her unwavering effort and brilliant performance will certainly guarantee a return invitation. She was joined by Marie Saunders and Jess Verrall, representing Teacher Stern at its best, who formed an unbreakable defensive duo. Their synchronisation around the opposing team’s net was critical in thwarting the opposition’s advances and propelling Selborne To Play to certain victory.

As the game came to a close, breaking with tradition, Hannah Pinkney took on the role of coach during the final quarter. Shouting sage and strategic guidance from the sidelines revealed a new facet to her typically polite demeanor at work. With the team’s prime goal-scorer out of action, Gemma Cselko seized the opportunity to make her mark and rose to the occasion with a legendary goal, leaving the team euphoric with shock. With such a dazzling performance as this, Pinkney might want to keep a watchful eye on her position as shooter, lest Cselko make a bid for the spotlight.

Once the final whistle had been blown, the team found it hard to contain their joy as they gave WFW and the umpires three cheers for their assistance in SelBorne To Play victory. Leppington led the now netball champions to the local establishment, plying the team with compliments and diet coke. It is fair to say that SelBorne To Play’s legendary performance last night will be etched in our memories forever.

To those daring enough to challenge us, fear not – we promise to temper our recent victory with grace. Whether you wish to join our ranks or assemble a team to face off against us, please contact gemma.cselko@selbornechambers.co.uk to arrange the next match.

*WFW, an energy and transport firm of solicitors, alas, lost 6 out of their 7 team members to a nasty cold, resulting in a regrettable forfeit and a generous 20-goal advantage for SelBorne To Play. Nevertheless, for all intents and (marketing) purposes, SelBorne To Play emerged triumphant in their ‘friendly’ match.
