Oaks Park under-16s were crowned Redbridge netball champions after a thrilling final with Caterham.

There was little between the two sides at Redbridge Sports Centre and the score was deadlocked at 3-3 at the end of normal time.

Extra time proved very tense, with neither side able to gain the upper hand.

And the scores remained level at 4-4 at the end of the additional period, meaning the final went to a golden goal session.

Oaks Park had the initiative as they had the centre pass, but they lost possession to give Caterham a chance.

Determined midfield play saw Oaks Park regain control of the ball, though, to feed Ella Sheridan in the circle and she scored the winning goal to clinch the silverware.
