Going for Gold!

The Stevenage team had their last event of the season, and it was a major tournament that began last October with 21 teams competing in regional hub events all over England and Wales. The climax was a finals tournament on Saturday 26th June down in Surrey where the final eight teams would play off to determine the champions.

The Stevenage side began the day in great form, and won their first two games against Wokingham and Swansea, and a draw with Gloucester meant that they would progress to the semi-final stage. They then faced another, really tough, team from Swansea and managed to beat them 2-1 to earn a place in the final. The final itself was a cagey affair, two teams working hard to try and score, but both defences in good form. The game finished all square at 0-0, but the organisers decided to give Stevenage the gold winners medals as they had beaten Wokingham earlier in the group stages.

This is a huge achievement, and we are incredibly proud of the boys but more specifically, Tom in year 6 who was part of the winning side — congratulations Tom!
