Halford Hewitt Success

The team were not confident of victory over Hurstpierpoint, due to the absence of a couple of our star OG players and to beat Haileybury was certainly against the odds but the boys excelled themselves getting through to Saturday and the third round. Sadly they lost fairly comfortably to Harrow who went on to be beaten by Tonbridge.
