St John Fisher School teams had a successful weekend in Billingham.
Representing North Yorkshire--
The Under 13 team defeated the Cumbria and Tyne and Wear Champions each 7-1, but lost to Hull 0-8 and Cleveland 1-7 to miss out to progress to the National Semi-Finals.
Theo Kelly and Luke Furlong were joined by newcomers—Tom Barlow, Gabriel Mead and Brook Sutton, and with only Luke too old next year, should do well next time.
The Under 16 team of Sammy Kelly, Matthew Lynch, George Asbury and Tom Hudson, all players in the leagues, defeated Tyne and Wear 6-2, Hull 5-3 (going to a 5th game in the final match) and Cleveland 7-1, but just lost 3-5 to Cumbria.
So Cumbria go to Blackburn in March and St J F go to Grantham to try to qualify for the All England Finals----only 4 teams will go through.
But St J F are in the last 16 Schools nationally
