U15 North Midway League

On Sunday 22nd October the U15 Team travelled to Sheffield for the first of 2 legs of the annual North Midway League. With many Leicestershire schools on half term, the team blended many faces from last season’s U14 Shires League winners with a new generation of younger and less experienced players…..

The Team

Evie, Carly, Emma & Fallon

Owen, Ayush, Lewis, Elliott & Tom

 There were 9 teams that entered:

Leicestershire

Warwickshire

Yorkshire 1

Yorkshire 2

Northumberland

Derbyshire

Lancashire

Nottinghamshire

Cheshire

All teams were put in groups of 3 and Leicestershire drew Yorkshire 1 & Derbyshire in their group. We played Derbyshire first and won 10-0. Up next was Yorkshire 1 – after some very close games that went in Leicestershire’s favour, we took the rubber 6-4 to win the group overall.

Up next was the winners of the other 2 groups Warwickshire & Lancashire. We played well against the 2 very strong teams & lost to both teams 9-1 with some very close games.

Leicestershire go into the second leg of the Midway in 3rd place.
