Congratulations to all those that have made it to the postseason!
The Under 17 finals, both Britbowl and National Plate, take place on 12 August 2017 at Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park, Bawtry Rd, Sheffield, S9 1UA
The the Under 19’s game wrapped up this past Sunday with just the one fixture left unresolved across the league – Lincolnshire Bombers vs Chorley Buccaneers looks set to go down as a voided 0-0 tie as the two sides couldn’t find a date to replay the postponed match up.
That gives us the following teams heading to the Championship/Plate playoffs and regional Trophy Finals.
East Kilbride Pirates* (1.000, 6.0 PAPG) vs Nottingham Caesars* (1.000, 6.33 PAPG)
Birmingham Lions (1.000, 9.17 PAPG) vs London Blitz (0.833, 7.33 PAPG)
With both teams boasting enough single-eligibility players not to be too concerned by the overlap with the Under 17 finals this coming weekend, this crucial match up goes ahead this Saturday at Metchley 3G Pitches, Birmingham University, kicking off at 1300.
Regional Trophy Finals:
Manchester Titans (0.833, 5.6 PAPG) vs Highland Wildcats (0.666, 19 PAPG)
Solent Seahawks (.500, 17.5 PAPG) vs Farnham Knights (0.500, 21.67 PAPG)
