MIDLANDS (Spring) U11 SEVEN-A-SIDE CHAMPIONSHIP

ALTRINCHAM PREP RETAIN TITLE UNDEFEATED

Fourteen schools enjoyed the Midlands Spring tournament, hosted at Repton School. Although, the pitches where heavy under foot from the recent downpour the boys did not let this stop them and it was a fantastic day to play, and witness, some football.

Altrincham Prep dominated group A winning all six games. Wellingborough Prep came a close second having only dropped points to the group winners.

In group B Elms Junior School went through as group winners having only dropped points to RGS The Grange who qualified second in the group, after two draws and four wins.

The semi-finals saw two excellent displays of football. Altrincham Prep looked to be on their way out at 2-0 down to RGS The Grange but they were resilient and pulled the game back to win 3-2 in, quite literally, the final kick of the game! In the second semi-final Elms Junior secured their final spot with a narrow 3-2 win over Wellingborough.

The final saw the two group winners come up against each other. The Elms and Altrincham looked to be evenly matched with both teams having opportunities to clinch the title. However, it was Altrincham Prep who broke deadlock and retained their title with a 1-0 win. The winners can now look forward to the National Finals at St. George’s Park in April.
