Approximately seventy children representing six schools from across Merseyside (Woodchurch High School, Knotty Ash School, Knowsley Central School, West Kirby Residential School, Cavendish High School and Lansbury Bridge School) took part in the Merseyside Pan Disability Boccia Tournament at Greenbank Sports Academy on 7th November.

At stake was a place for both competition finalists to represent Merseyside in the Lord’s Taverners Regional Pan Disability competition next February. This honour went to Cavendish High School (C) and Knowsley Central (D).

The overall tournament winner was Cavendish High School (C) who beat Knowsley Central 7 v 3.

Tournament organiser Steve Sullivan said:

“Congratulations to all of the players who took part in the tournament for their high standard of play and performance.

Thanks to Boccia England and Lord’s Taverners for supporting the event and to the volunteers and referees who did an excellent job in ensuring the smooth running of the event.”
