Under-16s progress to regional rounds

The Leys School produced four wins out of four to take victory in the Investec National Schools Championship – East Round.

Having won the county championships in October, the under-16 team headed to the Rushmere Sports Centre, Ipswich.

In the group stages, they beat Forest School 3-0, Haileybury 7-0 and Norwich High 7-0 to face Ipswich in the qualifying play-off match.

And a polished display saw them earn another 7-0 to book a place at the East Round Finals Day.

James Clark, The Leys director of sport, said: “This squad are a very special bunch. Their training ethic and approach to improving is first rate. They have a drive to be successful, but easily the most satisfying thing is that they do everything with a smile on their face.”
