Trojans retained their HSKL crown for a 4th year in a row, beating contenders Nottingham 18 - 16 in the final after previously sweeping aside Bec 23 - 10 in the semi's.
Some fantastic individual performances added to a great team ethic, ensuring the league title returned to South London for yet another year, despite Notts widely being tipped to dethrone Trojans and take their crown. The Champions showed their impoverished and superior shooting ability and coolness under pressure on the big stage and along with their vast experience, saw out the final in style.
A big congratulations to the whole of the 1st team squad, both players and coaching staff, from everyone at Trojans Korfball Club, you've made us proud once again!!
