The girls’ team consisting of Kira Reuter (L5), Abby Taylor (L5), Nerea Arraras (U5) and Carolin Minners (U5) played superbly all day defeating Malais School, Horsham 6-0 in the semi-final and Cheam High School, London 5-1 in the final, securing the South-East Regional Title for Culford. This was a hard act to follow, but the boys’ team of Oscar Cutting (U5), Charlie James (U5), Karim Najia (L5), Ed Pomeroy (U5) and Clemens Rathmanner (U5) fully justified their number one seeding. With a 4-0 victory in the semi-final against Abingdon School, Oxford and a highly impressive 4-0 win against Cheam High School in the final, they also qualified for the National Championships with their Regional Title. The Year 8 boys’ team of Derrick Chen (U3), Matthew Gedney (U3),Luke Watson (U3), Seb Koci-Edwards (U3) and James Naseby (U3) defeated Coopers Company and Coborn School, Upminster, Essex 4-2 in the semi-final but came up against a strong team from Reeds School in the final, losing 4-0.
