Twenty teams from around the UK, took part in the event which saw Nottingham JSoc win the men’s competition and Birmingham JSoc’s girls claimed the women’s prize.

Birmingham captain Gabby Kingsley said: “I’m absolutely elated. I didn’t think we’d win. We came for a good day out and it’s been a great day out!”

The event also saw the UJS men’s team won its first game in JUEFA’s seven-year history.
