Good Week / Bad Week – BAFA NL 2018 Week Fourteen


Dishonourable mentions

  • We saw the Under 17 game wrap up at the weekend, with the finals scheduled just a fortnight hence… But we’re yet to actually learn where. #Awkward
  • The West Coast Trojans took the tough decision to close their doors following the 2018 season, announcing their withdrawal from the league this Sunday.
  • Losses for the Wembley Stallions and Colchester Gladiators effectively remove them from the postseason race in the hotly contested East.
  • And we saw a number of teams pinned in place at the bottom of their respective conferences following Sunday’s results:


Bury Saints

It was realistically the last chance for the Saints to salvage something from 2018, but the East Anglian outfit couldn’t muster much against the Knights and are now resigned to playing Division One football in 2019.


Coventry Jets 

The old powerhouse of the British game will be playing Division Two football next year as the Jets were unable to take off against the Revolution – though it looked like the game was played in good spirits.

Will they trade places with long-time rivals, the Bulls over the offseason?

Bristol Apache

They still have a fixture versus the Eagles left on their slate, but the Bristol outfit are one and done in terms of seasons in the middle tier. Their hefty loss to the Thrashers will see them returned to the SFC2West for 2019, where their opportunity to weather rookies against some of the top teams in the middle tier should really show its value.
