Here’s the action from the final three games.

FINAL: London Knights vs Heaton Hornets

3rd/4th PLAYOFF: East Grinstead vs Dreadlax

5th/6th PLAYOFF: Jin & Juice vs Maidstone

With the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships in September no European teams entered the Tasko Cup this year so it was a fully domestic affair. Six teams battled for honours, including three teams see their first indoor action; Maidstone, East Grinstead and Jin & Juice . Pre-tournament favourites the London Knights had many players selected for the England team for the Worlds, but other teams also had players going to Buffalo in September, with either England or Ireland.

Best Goal Keeper: Rick Bone – London Knights
