The eleven other boroughs were split into three Gourps as follows:

Grp A – Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham & Southwark

Grp B – Croydon, Enfield & Wandsworth

Grp D – Bromley, Ealing & Harringey

The top four teams in each group would progress into the semi-finals & the four teams to make the semi-finals alongside Barnet were Southwark, Croydon & Bromley.

Barnet made the final after beating Croydon in the semi-finals but faced Southwark who had won their three group games scoring 44 goals without conceding.

In a tense final Barnet just came up short and finished with Silver, it was a great effort by all players & coach Aram Eidipour.
