The King’s School hosted one of the AJIS Cup Qualifying Tournaments for the second consecutive year on Friday 21st September. The qualifying tournaments are held at five different venues across the North West of England and are used as a stepping stone into the knockout phases of the prestigious U11 AJIS Cup.
King’s played host to Stockport Grammar Junior School, St Bede’s College Prep School from Manchester and Newcastle School from Stoke on Trent. The tournament is played on a ’round robin’ basis where the leading two schools progress to the Cup stage.
It proved a very enjoyable and successful day for King’s U11 footballers where they beat St Bedes 5 -0 in their opening game followed by another tremendous display beating Stockport 3-0 and finished off the day with a 2-2 draw versus Newcastle. King’s finished top of the league with 5 points, followed by Stockport on 4 and Newcastle in third place with 3 points.
The draw for the knockout stages will be made early in October.
