It was soon clear that King’s School, Chester, appeared the dominant force in Group A but second position was always a tight affair and eventually Bury Grammar School came with a late run, having lost two of their first three games, to clinch a semi-final place.
Group B was also tight with all school dropping points in the early stages. An undefeated Manchester Grammar School came out on top with 4 wins and 2 draws and Moorland overcame a slow start to win their final three matches and qualify.
In the semi-finals, the two group winners were triumphant, MGS enjoyed a convincing 5-0 win over Bury and King’s Chester defeating Moorland, to set up a Final between the day’s two dominant teams. MGS took an early lead but King’s pulled level and there was very little to choose the teams. Eventually a push in the penalty area led to a penalty to MGS which was thumped home emphatically and MGS lifted the trophy. However, both finalists qualify for the National Finals.
