Merseyside Regional Boccia Qualifiers

The Lord’s Taveners regional Boccia qualifiers, saw 24 teams and 98 competitors representing their counties, in order to progress to the national finals.

Broadgreen International School (Merseyside), progress after a 4-2 win against Trinity United in the final, and will join The Nelson Thomlinson School (Cumbria), to represent the North West in the Lord’s Taverners National Finals after they had a very convincing 11-0 win in the finals against Witton Academy. Good luck to both teams when they play for the National trophy; they thoroughly deserved to go forward as regional winners.

A big thank you to all the volunteers and the young sports leaders from schools across the region, students from Greenbank Sports Academy, and individuals who did an excellent job to help the tournament run as smoothly as possible.

Thank you to the Lord’s Taverners and Boccia England for their continued support for this event, which has done so much for the development of Boccia in the counties.
