Sunday 5th March saw a slightly revised U17 team travel to the Concord Sports Centre in Sheffield to participate in the 2nd leg of the North Midway League. With the team lying in the gold medal position after the 1st leg, hopes were high that we could hold on for the overall win!
Leicestershire 4 Northumberland 6
Leicestershire 8 Yorkshire (2) 2
Leicestershire 3 Cheshire 7
Leicestershire 7 Yorkshire (1) 3
Leicestershire 7 Warwickshire 3
As always seems to happen with Leicestershire, it all came down to the last match; the team had to win to come away with gold…..and they pulled it off! Winning the last match to come 3rd on the day and taking the overall gold medal over the 2 legs!
Congratulations to the whole squad of 14 players who contributed to a fantastic achievement for Team Leics!
