Elsewhere, Iggy represented the U13 Boys and Annabel, Mali, Daisy, Lilian, Emily, and Liliya represented the U13 Girls in the recent divisional tournament in Nottingham. The Knole Park juniors were selected from clubs across the South East of England to represent the South at the tournament in which was an outstanding achievement for all the young players.
