They have requested responses by 2nd May.

London and Harrow teams in action in the junior inter-area event

Both London and Harrow were represented at the junior inter-area event held at Harrow Leisure Centre on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th January.

On the Saturday, the under 13s and under 17s were in action. The London team finished 5th in the under 13 competition with the Harrow sides finishing 7th and 10th. In the under 17 competition, the London side finished 4th.

On the Sunday, it was the turn of the under 11s and the under 15s. The London under 11s were seconds away from winning the tournament until a very late goal by Norfolk in the final game meant that the London side had to settle for third place. The Harrow under 11 team finished ninth.

In the under 15s, the London side were fourth while the Harrow team finished seventh.

The LKA would like to thank all the players, coaches, referees and organisers!
