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.
