2017 LEAGUE TABLE
HISTORY AND INFORMATION
The Midlands league was established in the 2012/13 season and has proved a competitive and high quality tournament in every season since. The league officially runs from January to March in the Lent term although some schools do play fixtures outside of this window, should they both agree.
At present there are six members in Repton School, Oakham School, Stamford School, Uppingham School, Welbeck Defence College and Rugby and we look forward to welcoming Loughborough High School in the 2017/18 season. We would also welcome any new additions to the league who are willing to commit to playing each school during the Lent term.
The Midlands region is proving to be very strong as a whole with the regional team winning the ISFA Regional Representative Tournament at Harrow School back to back in 2014/15 and again in 2015/16.
2017 TOURNAMENT: REPTON ARE CHAMPIONS!
Repton retained the Midlands league for the third time as a talented group of players came to the end of their upper sixth year and signed of in style. The league went down to the last game Repton vs Oakham, with Oakham needing a draw or win and Repton a win to take the title. With the game goalless midway through the second half, it looked as if Oakham were going to take the title but Repton scored twice in the closing stages to secure a 2-0 victory. Some fine wing play from Izzy Emmett created space and the overlapping Lydia Morris whipped in a cross that Fenella Scutt tapped in from close range. For the second, Fenella turned provider, crossing this time from the left for Anna Jowle to lash home from the penalty spot.
