The year seven and eight boys B team also won the East Region Final at the Redbridge Sports Centre after they managed to qualify for the event following their impressive season.

Mark Duncan, assistant head teacher, said: “The team have worked so hard all year, training hard at school ‘Compete Tennis’ session as well as at local clubs.

“The level of sportsmanship shown at the finals was exceptional as was the competitive nature of the whole team.

“All four boys (Harry Cossington, Jack Carter, Patrick McLean-Tattan and Elliot Murray) raised their game throughout the day and were dominant in each of their matches.”

They sealed an 8-4 win against Herhersett Academy before winning 12-0 against Moreton Hall.

In the final they then managed to seal a 12-0 win against St Columba’s College.

Duncan added: “A very well deserved result for the team which capped off an excellent 2018 season.

“We now wish the A team the very best as they are through to the final 16 in the National Cup and take on the Division 1 Regional Final next month, at Gosling Park.”
