Somerset Schools Handball Competition

The boys did tremendously (no exaggeration, they really exceeded my expectations with their performances)

They finished second in their pool (Behind Crispin A who have 7 county and 3 regional players) and we were the only team to score against them during the pool stage.

They then made the final 4 teams in the playoffs. Matt, Louis and Isaac played brilliantly. Barton was very good in goal with Oli and Ben defending assertively. Despite Harry Turnell being one of the smallest in the whole competition (7 other schools) he really stepped up and showed a lot of courage putting himself in the way to stop much bigger opponents from having an easy ride.

They impressed a lot of other schools too!
