“Small school, big future!” James Allerton stated after winning the cup.
In area finals 120 schools took part and the top two from each area went to county finals. Sixteen teams from all over Norfolk then competed at Easton College Tennis Centre.
Thurton qualified top of their pool and then came top of the winners' pool to be crowned county champions.
