On a beautiful spring day Hymers College came out on top in a close and competitive North East U11 Sevens at The Grammar School at Leeds. The tournament saw seven schools participate: The Grammar School at Leeds, Hymers College, RGS Newcastle, Newcastle School for Boys, Lady Lane Park, Dame Allan's and Birkdale. The schools played each other once in a league format. After three rounds Hymers and Dame Allan’s both had seven points after two wins and one draw, whilst the hosts where also looking impressive on six points. Hymers, Dame Allen’s and The Grammar School at Leeds all went on to win their fourth fixture keeping the title open for grabs as all three schools still had each other to play. Dame Allan’s drew 2-2 with the hosts, whilst Hymers went on to win their fifth game. This brought the championship decider down to the final round of fixtures where Dame Allan’s faced Hymers. Dame Allan’s needed to win whilst Hymers only needed the draw. Despite a great effort from Dame Allan’s Hymers maintained their unbeaten form to secure a 3-1 win and claim the 2018-19 North East U11 7v7 title. Hymers can now look forward to the National Finals at St George’s Park in May.
