The netball teams from Lydiard Park Academy (LPA) and Isambard School met each other in the Swindon school’s tournament final early in the school year where LPA prevailed.
Both teams went on to the Wiltshire tournament where they won their pool matches to meet each other in the final.
Lydiard Park Academy again won and will compete in the South West regional final on 25 January.
But, whilst the girls play in smart blue and gold netball dresses, off court they don’t win any prizes for style.
Captain Shona O’Dwyer: “We have a really strong team but when we come off court we have to put on our own track suit tops.
“We felt like the poor relations at the county finals when we played teams from private schools like Marlborough College and Dauntsey’s who had all the kit.
“We really need matching training tops. It would be really great if we could display a sponsor’s name and make a good impression for Swindon.
“It would give us a lot of confidence if we could go into the tournament looking good.”
The team will be travelling to Bournemouth the day before the matches and the school is looking for help to fund accommodation.
