Going into their final match of the season one point behind league leaders Carre’s Grammar, King’s needed a win to become champions.

Missing their highly influential captain Daniel Ross and Daniel Wilson, King’s started the match slowly. They took the lead through an incisive counter attack, though Spalding responded quickly to leave the game evenly poised at 1-1. King’s showed their class as they settled into the game, scoring two more before half time to ease their nerves.

A dominant second half performance ensured King’s ran out 5-1 winners with the goals coming from Luke Kightley, Sam Allen and Jonathan Blanchard.
