Foster Cup Year 5 and 6 Tchoukball

 Eight teams from seven local primary  schools took part in the recent competition - Red Lane, BSCA A and BSCA B, Blackshaw, Moorgate (the current cup holders), Tonge Moor, St Stephens and All Martyrs and Ss Osmund and Andrews.

For the first round the teams were split into two groups of four playing 5 minute matches


Group A – Red Lane, BSCA A, Blackshaw, Tonge Moor

Group B - Ss Osmund and Andrew, St Stephen and All Martyrs, BSCA B, Moorgate

 Tonge Moor and St Stephen and All Martyrs topped their respective groups with two wins and a draw.


Tonge Moor met their local rivals and current cup holders Moorgate and edged into the final with a narrow 6-4 win

The other semi-final was less close with St Stephens storming into the final with a 10-5 victory !

 The third and fourth place – produced rather a surprise with BSCA A beating a very disappointed Moorgate by 6-4.

The Final

This was an extremely close fought contest with neither side dominating but in the end it was the power shooting of Tonge Moor (containing 4 members of last years’ Year 4 winning team) who came through with a 9-7 win.
