Coach Richard Walker said ‘What the team achieved this year is unbelievable, we the coaches could not be prouder of them. Their hard work and commitment is what made this result possible, we will now look forward to next year and being in the 1st Division competing with some of the biggest clubs in Hertfordshire. I am sure with the talent that we have in the club we will do well. I would also like to thank the parents for their support and dedication, without them transporting the kids to training and galas we would not have been able to pull this amazing result off.’
