Up against 27 Havering schools in the football, they won five of their six group matches as they took on Crowlands, Langtons, Ardleigh Green, Mead, Brady and Clockhouse.

In the quarter-finals they had to go through a nail-biting penalty shoot-out before getting past St Marys, while Harrow Lodge were beaten 2-0 in the semis.
