With combinations continuing to develop and confidence growing, England maintained their impressive form with back-to-back victories on Saturday.

They came close to breaking the 100-goals mark with a 97-23 win against Scotland U17 before accelerating away after a closely contested first half against Wales U17 to record a 71-32 victory.

The young Roses then made it four from four on the final day of the competition, running out 95-15 winners against hosts Northern Ireland U17.

Congratulations to all the athletes, coaches and support staff involved and a huge thank you to all at Europe Netball and Netball NI for putting on a fantastic competition.
