Last year’s underdogs the Green Titans came out strongly on Friday at Rices, St Philip playing field to wrestle the title from Red House who have had a chokehold on the trophy for more than six consecutive years. In the end Green House won by a mere two points but those two were simply priceless.

Sports day was the usual affair of excitement for the first half of the morning but the Titans left nothing to chance as they went tête-à-tête with Yellow House who were also gunning to take the top spot.
