A total of 12 schools took part and after playing 5 games, of which they won 3, drew 1 and lost 1, they came second in their group. This enabled them to play in the semi-final for the cup competition. Unfortunately they lost this game and came 4th overall, which was an amazing achievement as they have only been playing together for 5 weeks. They all played extremely well and enjoyed the experience. We hope they can now take this skill and use it when the league starts in November.
