The U14A and B teams travelled to play in the annual Birley’s tournament hosted by King’s, determined to replicate the success of the U19 teams, who had won both events a fortnight ago.
The B team played well in the A team competition but lost out in the semi-final of the Plate.
The A team went the whole way, beating Sevenoaks 15-13 in a very tense semi-final before facing a strong Brighton College side in the finals. With an 8-8 score at the end of play, the match went into extra time, and with Brighton having the advantage of the first centre pass, they just held on to clinch the trophy. Well done to the team for their tenacity and excellent play on the court; 2017 Birley’s Runner-Up is a great achievement!
