2018-19: PRESTFELDE QUALIFY UNDEFEATED
The first of the 2018-19 ISFA U11 Sevens was the Midlands (Autumn) which was once again hosted at Repton School. This year saw ten schools participate: Hallfield, Prestfelde, Formarke Hall, The Old Hall, The Shrubbery Sch., Packwood Haugh, Altrincham Prep, S.Anselm’s, Terra Nova and West House. Despite the strong gales present throughout the day this did not dampen the boys spirts and some fantastic football was witnessed.
The schools played in two groups of five with the top four in each group progressing to the knockout stages. In group A Prestfelde opened their campaign beating last season’s National Champions Altrincham and maintained their form to finish the group undefeated. Altrincham progressed in second place, whilst Hallfield went through in third and Packwood Haugh in fourth after being narrowly separated on goal difference. In group B Terra Nova impressed winning three out of their four games to progress as group winners. The Old Hall came a close second with 8 points. Formarke Hall qualified in third place whilst West House went through in fourth.
In the quarter-finals Prestfelde maintained their dominance beating West House 4-0. The three other quarter-finals had to be decided on penalties: Altrincham Prep overcame Formarke, The Old Hall defeated Hallfield, and Terra Nova knockout Packwood Haugh. In the semi-finals Prestfelde worked hard to narrowly defeated The Old Hall 2-1 and secure their place in the final. Altrincham Prep narrowly missed out after Terra Nova defeated them on penalties.
The final saw the two group winners come up against each other. Terra Nova put up a good fight but Prestfelde, who where undefeated all day, showed their skill to run out comfortable 3-0 winners. The winners can now look forward to the National Finals at St. George’s Park in May.
