Kirkby High crowned champions

Kirkby High School Year 10 students represented Knowsley at the Merseyside Handball Championships in March.

They had this privilege after winning the Knowsley Tournament back in December without losing a single game.

Kirkby High started the tournament with two wins and then took their foot off the gas and lost the next two. This left them in 4th position meaning they had to play Wirral Grammar in the semi-finals as they were seeded number one.

Wirral Grammar are the current national champions so they knew it would be a really tough game.

The game ended 5-5 going into two minutes extra time ending in a very strong finale in which they won 7-6.

The boys then played Meols Cop in the final and won 9-6 to become Merseyside Champions. They now represent Merseyside in the northern games. Well done boys.
