A fan­tas­tic morn­ing at the annu­al White Rose Junior League saw our A’ & B’ teams com­plete a 1 – 2 fin­ish for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year.

The A’ team claimed 32 1st place fin­ish­es, includ­ing the canon, and progress to the North­ern Final with 370 points, hav­ing seen off the chal­lenge from City of Sheffield (160), Don­cast­er Dartes (260), and our very own B’ Team (267), who did an amaz­ing job of steal­ing points from the oth­er teams to fin­ish over­all sec­ond in the com­pe­ti­tion. Well done every­one, it was a tense and amaz­ing experience.

Final standings

  1. City of Leeds ‘A’ 370
  2. City of Leeds ‘B’ 267
  3. Doncaster Dartes 260
  4. City of Sheffield 260
  5. Bo Kirklees 241
  6. Skipton 146
  7. Harrogate 135

The next round of the Junior League is the North­ern Final which will be held on Sun­day 6th Octo­ber at John Charles Aquat­ics Cen­tre. This is our tenth year in the com­pe­ti­tion, which we won four years in a row from 2010 to 2013, and then twice more in 2017 and 2018. It would be great to storm through the next round and get the tro­phy back to Leeds again by win­ning the Nation­al Final in Cor­by on 24th November.

Thanks to David Broome and Vic­ki Spencer for offi­ci­at­ing, as well as a huge thank you to our fan­tas­tic team man­agers on the day (Kim Math­ias, Meron Gebre, Har­vey McG­reavy-Gill & 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.
