On the 30th May the squad headed off to the finals to play the Army in the Semi-Finals. A win in that game would confirm promotion to the B division and then a "Final" for the C division championship.

MensCC WebThe Semi-final against the Army ended in a 5-0 win for Surrey and promotion to the B division secured. Goal scorers were Sean Pearcy (2), Mo Rahman, Simon Bond & Tom Pickersgill

This set up a final against Nottinghamshire, who had won the other "C" pool and had just beaten Herefordshire 6-2 in their semi-final.

The hardest game of the whole campaign, which you would expect, saw Surrey in a 3-0 losing position at half time. Some inspired coaching points from Steve Hardy (Head Coach) at half time saw Surrey come out of the blocks fast and getting back to 3-2 within a matter on 2 minutes, and eventually going on to win the game 6-4 and being promoted as Champions. Goals from Simon Bond (2), Joe Wainright, Tom Pickersgill, Andy Pett & Mike Trim
