Reprotec School Teams 7-a-side

For the second week in a row an U11 Nottinghamshire County Finals 7-a-side title was decided by the result of the last game of the tournament. Disappointingly there were only five Districts present to contest the School Teams competition which can lead to national finals with Eastwood’s, Mansfield’s and Nottingham’s representatives having dropped out

This left five very good sides who produced a string of tight games and with the exception of one ‘rogue’ result no, more than one goal was scored by any team in any game.

Newark’s representatives, Lowes Wong, recorded a 1-0 win over Kirkby & District side, Holy Cross, in the first game on Pitch 1 while two more strong sides met on Pitch 2 with Gedling’s Arno Vale School squeezing past Bassetlaw’s Sir Edmund Hillary 1-0. Holy Cross suffered the most surprising score line of the morning, losing 4-0 to St Edmund Campion from Rushcliffe but then went on to draw their next game 1-1 against a strong Arno Vale side, dominating most of the play in the process. Before this game, Arno Vale had figured in one of the only two 0-0 draws of the morning, this one against Lowes Wong.

Following their goal spree against Holy Cross, St Edmund Campion could then only manage three draws in their last three games which eventually cost them the title. In the penultimate round of games, they drew with Arno Vale whilst Lowes Wong beat Sir Edmund Hillary 1-0. This meant, that going into the final game, a draw or win for Lowes Wong would put them top of the league. A first half goal for St Edmund Campion began to look as though they would snatch the win but a spectacular long-range free kick from Lowes Wong left the final score at 1-1 and handed the title to Lowes Wong.

Mementoes were given to the players of Lowes Wong and runners up St Edmund Campion by Bob Young, Chairman of Nottinghamshire Schools’ FA and now Lowes Wong will go on to represent Nottinghamshire in the ESFA / Danone Midland Regional Finals in Nottingham on Saturday 30 March 2019.

LOWES WONG 4 3 1 +2 8
ARNO VALE 4 2 1 +1 6
HOLY CROSS 4 1 7 -6 1
