In their first group match they played King Edward’s School, Bath who they beat 5-1 after a slow start to the match. The second match was won 2-1 against a well drilled King’s, Bruton Side and in the third match the team beat Torquay Grammar School 5- 1. The team continued their run of success  winning the final match against Canford School 2-1, to qualify for the Semi Finals. The Semi Final game was against a very strong South Dartmoor side but Dean Close dominated from the start  with goals from Jacob Payton ,Elliot Bancroft and Oscar Newcombe to qualify for the National U18 Indoor Hockey Finals. The Final was a tight match against Millfield, with both teams already qualified but they still played out an outstanding end to end match. Millfield scored first before a superb short corner strike from Jacob Payton just before half time levelled the score. Oli Smart made some superb saves in the second half, keeping the score even and Dean Close made some excellent attempts at goal hitting the post and crossbar! Millfield scored and came away with the win from an excellent match.
