Leaders from Netherhall School were truly appreciated and must be thanked for their expertise in managing the scoring table and umpiring matches.

The round robin group matches saw Cherry Hinton, St Alban’s, Arbury and Abbey Meadows go through to the semi-finals. St Alban’s were narrowly defeated Abbey Meadows in a rematch of Last years final 1-0.  In the second semi-final Arbury came out as winners in a convincing win against Cherry Hinton, beating them 5-1.

The 3rd/4th play off was a delightful match played with great passion with St Alban’s securing bronze medals by beating Cherry Hinton 3-0.

The final was a tense match. Arbury and Abbey Meadows were well matched with some excellent play from both teams. It was Abbey Meadows who went on to avenge last year’s disappointment of finishing second to become the 2016 champions!

The Spirit of the Games award was awarded to Newnham Croft B team who demonstrated great Passion throughout the tournament.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and represented their school.The standard was high and the atmosphere exciting and competitive!
