On Saturday 4 March, the King Edward’s squad of 11 boys participated in the U14 Ultimate Frisbee Nationals in Wolverhampton.

The first game against Flux 1 was a tough start, ending in an 8-1 loss. However, the team quickly learned from their mistakes and went on to beat Air Badgers4 6-5 in their second game. They then drew 3-3 against Ocelots, demonstrating continued improvement throughout the tournment. 

Unfortunately, the fourth game resulted in a loss against Didsbury Flyers due to unforced errors. However, in the fifth game, the team gave an outstanding performance against Air Badgers 2, one of the best U-14 teams in the country. Despite competing hard and making life difficult for the opposition, the tactical flexibility and quality of the Air Badgers team proved too much, resulting in a final score of 8-2. 

The final game against SPJ Ultimate was an impressive 7-2 win. The boys put in a lot of effort and switched on defence, showing significant improvement from the previous year. 

Muhammad Ayub was awarded the Most Valuable Player for his tenacious defence and excellent decision making, while Seve Bhogal captained the team brilliantly, setting a good example of sportsmanship and hard work. Overall, a fantastic effort by the team – well done!
