Following the successful inaugural tournament in 2011 won by Eton College in a thrilling final against St Paul's School, this years event has grown in size thanks to the addition of a Scottish qualifier event hosted by Fettes College, Edinburgh.   We congratulate the winners of the Scottish event, Loretto School, who took the coveted title over a freezing February weekend.
