Netball is back big time. Forget footy – the all-time favourite girls’ school sport was given a boost last week by Blake Lapthorn Linnell, which won what it called “an important regional tournament”.
Blake Lapthorn’s team, sporting the suitably retro tag Blake’s Seven, emerged victorious from its battles against several other local firms. The team was a bit low on lawyers, though, with Sarah Lucas the only solicitor turning out and legal exec Sharon Hewlett the only other Blake Lapthorn staffer to don a bib. Not to worry. Tulkinghorn prides himself on his ability to spot a trend. He predicts a long, hot summer of wing attacks, goal shooters and rigorous goal defence.
