The annual 3-day U13 Regional Representative Festival took place at Shrewsbury School between 6th-8th April 2019 with 8 regions attending and produced some excellent football. As always, this was a Festival with the aim of providing plenty of football for all the boys in attendance, rather than a tournament with results and league tables recorded. However, after all the regions had played 7 matches against each other, no team won every match and not team lost every match.
Once again the facilities provided by Shrewsbury School were excellent, particularly considering that all the pitches had endured a long season of football on them. Similarly the parents and supporters all greatly appreciated the hospitality on offer between matches.
140 players attended the Festival and the next stage will be the announcement of 16-18 players to take on Welsh Schools on 19th May at Bisham Abbey and then a Squad of 50 players to attend events to be held during the Summer Holidays.
