St Albans Primary lifted the Newcastle Hoops4Health crown on Friday 17th January. Four Newcastle schools were hoping it would be them on the night.

Next came the Gosforth battle with Gosforth Central facing Gosforth Junior. It looked like it might be Central’s night as they seemed to not be able to miss and secured an 8 – 2 win and their place in the final. In the finals St Albans opened the scoring before Central leveled the score.
The east end school managed one more basket securing them the Newcastle crown. St Albans 4 – Gosforth Central 2.
