ESFA DANONE NATIONS' CUP: NORTH REGION FINALS

ESFA IMPACT TROPHIES U12 5-A-SIDE REGION A FINALS

Durham Johnston School will be representing DCSFA in both the boys' and girls' competitions.

Boys: Durham Johnston got of to a good start by winning their first 2 games. However, a draw and a defeat in their next 2 games dented their chance of reaching the National Finals. A convincing win in their final game was not enough for the team to progress. The winning team was Archbishop Holgate's School, York (North Yorkshire CSFA). Durham Johnston finished third in the group.

Girls: Durham Johnston made an excellent start by winning three games in a row by comfortable margins. The team then suffered 2 defeats and were overtaken by eventual winners, St Benedict's Catholic High School, Whitehaven (Cumbria CSFA). Durham Johnston finished in second place.
