Reprotec School Teams 7-a-side


The Nottinghamshire Schools’ FA 7-a-side School Teams Finals tournament took place at Sutton Lawn on Saturday 26 February. The weather was perfect and all the teams took advantage of the benign conditions to produce some excellent football, close results and a very exciting finish where any one of four teams could have won the title.

Unfortunately only five of the nine Districts of the County took part as the other areas have not yet restarted regular football competitions. This, however, did not detract from the quality of the competition although the first two matches, one between Middleton from Nottingham and Arnold View representing the Gedling District and the other between Barnby Road from Newark and Carnarvon School from Bingham both ended in 0-0 draws.

The next two games saw Greasley Beauvale from Eastwood beat Middleton 2-0 and Barnby Road record a win by the same score over Arnold View. Greasley gained a second successive win in their next game beating Carnarvon 1-0. Middleton then took three points in a win against Barnby Road. The fourth round of games saw Carnarvon recover to beat Middleton 1-0 and Arnold View defeat the eventual winners Greasley 2-0 demonstrating how evenly matched the teams were.

This left the four teams in the final round of matches each with a chance to win the tournament. A 0-0 draw between Carnarvon and Arnold View was enough to give the Gedling side 3rd place in the final table and in the other game a 0-0 draw for Greasley against Barnby Road earned the Eastwood side the point they needed to win the title with Barnby Road finishing in 2nd place.

Medals were presented to Greasley, Barnby Road and Arnold Hill by Bob Young, Chairman of the Notts Schools’ FA and the Eastwood side will go on to represent Nottinghamshire in the Regional Tournament at the end of March/early April.

BARNBY ROAD 4 2 1 +1 5
ARNOLD VIEW 4 2 2 = 5
CARNARVON 4 1 1 = 5
MIDDLETON 4 1 3 -2 4
