2018-19: DULWICH PREP VICTORIOUS
Alleyns School hosted a tightly contested London region U11 7v7 tournament which saw Dulwich Prep claim the title. Group A saw Thomas's Clapham start quickly notching up three straight victories on their way to toping the group, with Newton Prep, Hornsby House and Arnold House closely matched in the race to join them in the knock out stages. A late equaliser for Newton Prep against Arnold House saw them claim second spot at their opponents loss, whilst a convincing victory for Hornsby House saw them finish third and also make it through to the quarter finals.
Group B was even more competitive with every team recording at least one victory. Dulwich College started slowly but soon recovered from an opening loss to win four straight matches to top the group. Fulham Prep made an excellent start with back to back victories but they needed a last match victory to ensure themselves second spot which they claimed. Eaton House The Manor also started well but only one point from their last two matches saw them drop into third place and narrowly miss out on a quarter final spot.
Group C saw Kings College Junior and Alleyns record comprehensive opening match victories, however it was only Kings College Junior who could maintain it as they went unbeaten to top the group. Dulwich Prep recovered from an opening match defeat to notch up three straight wins to take second, whilst Thomas's Battersea claimed the final quarter final place finishing third.
Thomas's Clapham overcame Thomas's Battersea in the first quarter final nothing five goals in a seven goal thriller, whilst Newton prep and Hornsby House both needed a penalty shoot-out to make it through. Dulwich Prep defeated Fulham Prep to claim the last semi-final spot. In the semi-finals it was clear that Dulwich Prep were improving all the time as they produced a sparkling performance to defeat Newton Prep 3-0 to make it to the final, where they would face Thomas's Clapham who edged past Kings College Junior in a hugely competitive match. In the final an early goal was enough as Dulwich Prep defended well to win the match and claim the London region U11 7v7 title and qualify for the National Finals Day at St Georges Park.
