Schools from Surrey, Bristol, Essex and Buckinghamshire took home the honours at the England Handball National Schools finals.


But all four finals had spectators at Derby Arena on the edge of their seats with little between the teams as most of the matches went to the final whistle.

Their final opponents Bower Park School, from Romford, pipped Priory Belvoir in extra time in the last four but came up short in the crucial decider as Guildford edged it 4-3.
