  • Notts U16 Boys suffer narrow defeat in National ESFA Inter County Final against Hampshire at Stoke City's ground - see Main Menu

Reprotec Small Schools 7-a-side

Very disappointingly, with teams dropping out at the last minute, there were only two sides to contest the Nottinghamshire Schools’ FA Small Schools 7-a-side County Shield – Linby cum Papplewick and Keyworth.

Having won the title for the last three seasons, Linby came to the game as overwhelming favourites and so it proved as they were much too skilful and powerful for Keyworth who battled bravely, never letting their heads drop and came very close to scoring on several occasions but each time found the Linby defence in good form.

The mementoes were presented to both sides by Bob Young, Chairman of the Notts Schools’ FA. Linby now go on to compete in the Midland Regional Finals in Nottingham on 28th April and on this display should have a good chance of doing well in that competition and trying to earn themselves a place in the national finals.
