Mersea Island School fielded two teams with reserves in the year 6 Lexden Cup held at Lexden Squash and Rackets Club.
Grace, Zara, Lucy, Emma, Phoebe, Sonny, Hugh, Oli, Chase, Oscar, Evan and Charlie making up the two teams.

Mersea A and Mersea B were up first against each other, Mersea A taking the win 60-34, Grace coming the closest in the B team to toppling a Mersea A player just missing out by one point 14-15.

Mersea A then faced Tiptree Heath and then Stanway Primary School taking both wins 60-32 and 60-10 respectfully to remain unbeaten (Hugh, Sonny, Lucy and Emma) throughout the tournament.

Mersea B took on the teams in reverse order winning 60-9 against Stanway and narrowly missing out against Tiptree 40-48 Grace being the only Mersea B player to win a match against Tiptree.

The final scores were:

1st Mersea A    180
2nd Tiptree        140
3rd Mersea B    134
4th Stanway        23

What makes this finish so good is Mersea School were fielding the future as well as the present, 1 x year 3 player; 6 x year 5 players and only 5 x year 6 players and they were only 6 points off runner up spot too, showing our strength beyond year 6.

A huge thank you to Mrs Andrews, Mrs Peachey and Mrs Mussett for driving to and from the event, we are unable to compete in events like this without parent support.

Mersea have now qualified a year 5 and year 6 team at the Essex School Games in association with Active Essex at the Corporal Budd Gymnasium in January 2020.
