  • Midlands Final - U16 Boys v West Midlands 17th May 2019 at Quorn FC - 7.00pm

Reprotec Girls 7-a-side

In the tightest of finishes to the U11 Girls 7-a-side County Finals, Kirkby Woodhouse School representing the Kirkby District, squeezed past Rushcliffe’s Tollerton Primary School to win the honour of representing Nottinghamshire in the ESFA Midland Regional Finals to be held in Nottingham on 9th March next year.

Seven District champions produced a morning of excellent girls’ football in a very competitive and close tournament played in one league with each team playing six games against each of the other schools. Three of the four teams that turned out to be the strongest as the morning unfolded all featured in the first two games on Pitch Two with Kirkby Woodhouse securing a 1-0 win over Lowes Wong representing Newark & District and Tollerton from Rushcliffe beating Burton Joyce by the same scoreline,

Burton Joyce had already gained their first win on Pitch One with a 1-0 over Gilthill from the Eastwood & District Association with Berridge, the City representatives, losing a close game 1-0 to Mansfield’s Peafield Lane. Kirkby Woodhouse then went on to record three more wins against Berridge, Peafield Lane and Gilthill whilst Tollerton could only manage two against Gilthill and Peafield Lane, losing 1-0 to Lowes Wong before they met the Kirkby team with only one more game left each. Tollerton came out on top 1-0 in another close encounter, leaving both teams on 12 points but the Rushcliffe school with a better goal difference.

Kirkby faced a tough task against Burton Joyce in their last game with Tollerton having the seemingly easier game against Berridge. A 1-0 win saw Kirkby take a temporary lead in the league but in the last game of the morning Tollerton met Berridge needing a win by any margin to pip them on goal difference. Berridge however showed great spirit to hold Tollerton to a 0-0 draw and so hand Kirkby Woodhouse the title.

The top two teams were presented with their mementoes by Bob Young, the Chairman of Nottinghamshire Schools’ FA.

TOLLERTON 6 7 1 +6 13
