2014-15 Competitions Update

The Middlesex Schools’ FA has published the draws for the early rounds of the Secondary and Post-16 County Cups for the 2014-15 season. Each competition has a dedicated page within the Inter-Schools Competitions section of the website which can be accessed from the menu which appears towards the top of each page.

In addition, MSFA is delighted to confirm that the Harrow Schools’ FA has committed to entering the Inter-District Competitions at Under-12, Under-13 and Under-14, so the fixtures for those competitions have been revised accordingly.

Both Schools and District SFAs are reminded to note carefully the dates for their matches, which are “played by” dates for the Cup competitions and which are fixed dates for Inter-District matches. All Team Administrators should familiarise themselves with the provisions of Association Rule 2f, particularly section (ix).

Information pertaining to the League Competitions and Primary School Competitions will follow in due course.

Brent lift Compton Cup at Wembley

Following their success in winning one of the closest Compton Cup competitions in recent memory, the Brent Under-13 squad were given a unique opportunity to collect the trophy at Wembley Stadium.

Brent had steadily improved throughout the season and achieved their success through a fine run of form that took them to the top of the League after Christmas, where they stayed despite stiff competition from Hillingdon and Harrow. The squad also won the London Cup along the way.

In recognition of their achievement, The Wembley National Stadium Trust (WNST) and The FA invited the team to be presented with the Compton Cup at Wembley Stadium, in similar fashion to that when Arsenal lifted The FA Cup in the Royal Box last month.
