Maids had made it through to the finals of both the Main Competition and Development Cup following weeks of matches and some impressive displays.

The squad included: W Paveley, O Macmillan, B Pidgeon, H Sinclair, M Cochran, S Lee, C Myall (C) , W Keylock, O Hodgson, C Gould , S Richards, H Hall, B Morgan, M Cooley, Rapha, Dawud M, A Bristow.

The squad included: A Norman, Ellis O, C Lawrence, J Calvert, W McKay, W Chandler (C) , G Dennis, J Child, J Barry, T Andrew, C Bellamy , H Mun, K Hern-Smith, Finlay C, Hugo H.
