Under 11 2018

This will be remembered as one of the most closely contested finals since the ECF Schools Under 11 was initiated. The final result remained unclear  until the final match was completed and the winners – Hallfield School – won on tie-break from Kings College School. This despite the fact that an excellent Heathside School had lead the field for much of the tournament [more]
