First steps towards internatonal stage

Two of the Island's national netball teams are going head to head with UK based Panthers team today.

The U17 and U21 national squads will face up against the Panthers this morning at the NSC in a round robin of matches.

The U17's squad will be making their international tournament debut in Dublin this October whilst the U21's have their first test match in November against Gibraltar.  

The U21's take on the Panthers first today at 11:45.

Then U17's will step up to the plate at 3:30.
