2016 TOURNAMENT: FIRST WIN FOR ROYAL RUSSELL

The 2016 Complete Sports Solutions ISFA Sixes took place on a beautiful, sunny September afternoon at Bolton School. 

The day saw produced not only a great deal of excellent football but also the customary high standards of sportsmanship that has long been associated with this event and ISFA football in general.

24 schools were divided into 4 groups of six teams with the top two teams qualifying for cup and the 3rd and 4th place teams progressing to the Plate tournament.  Most of the groups proved extremely competitive with the final qualifiers undecided until the final matches.  A special mention to St. John’s, from Enfield, who were making their first appearance in the competition

All six teams in Group A lost matches before Bradfield and City of London finally won through,  Similarly, in Group D, Shrewsbury won their first two matches but faded to finish fourth, behind Ardingly who managed only one point from their first tow games in a group where Charterhouse and Forest won through to the Cup.

The winners of the other two groups were more clearcut., Repton and Bede’s clearly ahead of the Manchester duo of MGS and St. Bede’s, whllst Royal Russell looked ominous in Groups C, winning all their matches, ahead of Hampton who were also comfortable qualifiers.

On such a hot day, it was inevitable that fatigue became a major factor in the knock-out stages and the teams that had kept the ball and conserved their energy during the group stages enjoyed a great advantage.  Hampton enjoyed very narrow victories over Repton (by a single goal) and Bradfield (on penalties) to reach the Final, where they met all-conquering Royal Russell who had eased past Bede’s and Charterhouse by two goals in each case.

Royal Russell played the possession game with skill throughout the tournament and, once they took the lead in the Final, they never looked like surrendering their advantage, again winning 2-0 to win the Cup for the first time ever.

Manchester GS and Ardingly reached the Plate Final.  1-1 at full time and after extra-time, the game went to penalties before MGS won the shoot-out to win the Plate for the second season in succession.
