What a fan­tas­tic morn­ing of com­pe­ti­tion at the annu­al White Rose Junior League on Sat­ur­day morn­ing. The City of Leeds A’ team tri­umphed with 225 points, topped off by win­ning the canon, to progress to the North­ern Final.

The team earned a whop­ping 36 1st place fin­ish­es whilst see­ing off chal­lenges from City of Sheffield (145) and Bo Kirklees (128). Our B’ Team fin­ished in sec­ond place with 152 points and did an amaz­ing job of steal­ing points from the oth­er teams. This is the first time in the his­to­ry of the Junior League that the City of Leeds A’ and B’ teams have fin­ished 1st and 2nd. Well done every­one; it was a tense and amaz­ing experience.

The next round of the Junior League is the North­ern Final which will be held on Sun­day 7th Octo­ber at Pala­tine Leisure Cen­tre in Black­pool. This is our ninth year in the com­pe­ti­tion, hav­ing pre­vi­ous­ly won it four years in a row (2010 – 2013) before claim­ing the title back once again last year. It would be great to storm through to the Nation­al Final on 25th Novem­ber in Cor­by and bring the tro­phy back to Leeds once again.

Results should be avail­able on the York­shire SA web­site soon.

Thanks to David Broome and Leanne Law­son for offi­ci­at­ing, as well as a huge thank you to our fan­tas­tic team man­agers on the day: Meron Gebre, Jane Good­win, Kay Jack­son & Sam Goodison.

Also, a big shout out to all those par­ents who made the effort to wear team colours and join in the fun by wear­ing wigs and face paint. Great job! Hope­ful­ly you can top it at the North­ern Final.

Well done every­one! Keep focus­ing on great takeovers and fin­ish­es dur­ing train­ing, ready to smash the North­ern Final.
