Thursday 9 February 2012

Seb Cooley and Tom Dunbar at the EFA Northern Championships 2012Seb Cooley (Physics and Maths Master) won the EFA Northern Championship with his partner Tom Dunbar, without dropping a single game. 

This is the second year running that the pair have won this title, and as holders of all three of the major titles - the Kinnaird Cup (National Championship), the London and the Northern Championships - Seb and Tom are the top pair in the country.

Seb came up against his old schoolfriends James Toop and Matt Wiseman in the Final of the Northern Championship, held at Shrewsbury School over the weekend of 4th / 5th February.

A full report of this final, as well as the tournament and the festival (in which Samson Yick and Jamie Humes made it to the final, but were defeated 1-2 by players with more than 10 years of experience than they have) can be found on the Eton Fives website: www.fivesonline.net/etonfives/438-north-stars-cooley-and-dunbar-retain-the-northern.html.
