The boys played 4 games against other district champions.
Our team drew 3 and won 1 game, leaving them as the only unbeaten team in the tournament.
Unfortunately, with 3 points for a win, the team did not retain the trophy that the school won last year.
The 3 drawn games could all have been victories with a bit more luck. Shots kept hitting posts or flying over the cross bar. One more win would have been enough.
At least the team was unbeaten - they have not lost a school match for over 2 years.
Girls team with Mr Harrison and Mr Pope.
The girls were also hoping to retain the county title won last year.
They won 1, drew 2 and lost 1 of their 4 matches.
Their only defeat was to a very good Oaks team from Ipswich - who won all their games to be deserved champions.

We are delighted that the launch of our New Curriculum Kitchen was a great success today. Invited members of the local press, Governors, Diocese (who funded the project) and the Hitcham’s Trust (who are funding ingredients for this year’s Food Technology lessons), watched as the brilliant local chef Peter Harrison did a fabulous cookery demonstration with a small group of pupils – making homemade ravioli & sauce and pizzas. The children had a wonderful time, and all learnt a lot of new skills.
This was followed by the formal opening of the recently covered lunchtime courtyard, where the children and guests finished off all the delicious food!
Please keep an eye on the local press, including the Suffolk Magazine and the Today Magazine for articles that they should be publishing.
