It was a great pleasure to welcome 24 teams and over 250 Year 5 players to this year’s tournament, held at Dulwich College on 3 October.
It was a spectacular occasion with the Barry buildings providing the perfect backdrop. The players came from both Primary and Prep schools, some local and others from much further afield. All gave a great account of themselves on the field but, most importantly, displayed a wonderfully positive and sporting spirit.
A highly competitive event and congratulations to the four Cup Semi-Finalists: Oakfield, Dulwich Prep London, Rosendale and Thomas’ Clapham. Both Semi-finals were won on penalties, a trend that extended to the final, where Rosendale won a very tight match against Oakfield (coached by OA Joshua Lawrence). The Plate competition was equally competitive and congratulations to the four teams that qualified for the later stages: Dulwich College, Wetherby Prep, Cothill and St Cyprian’s. Again, the standard was impressive and congratulations to Wetherby Prep who were victorious.
Of course we must congratulate the winners but it really should be emphasised just how fantastic all the players and teams were. A thoroughly enjoyable day and our thanks to everyone involved!
