MSFA Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of the Middlesex Schools' FA took place on 24th June 2014 at the Middlesex FA Offices. A number of important decisions were made at the meeting, including the adoption of a new set of rules which the Executive Committee will use to manage the Association's competitions.

Under the new rules, each District Schools' FA will be required to nominate at least one representative to sit on the Executive Committee, failure to do so will result in that District - and the schools within it - being excluded from MSFA competitions.

The majority of the Officers of the Association were re-elected unopposed, while Jim Dees was elected to the Executive Committee as Primary Schools' Secretary.

The meeting also confirmed that the Kay Cup for Year 7 pupils will move to a 9v9 format and that schools would be encouraged to adhere to The FA Guide to Pitch and Goalpost Dimensions where possible.

Kent take SEESFA Title

The Under-16 Representative Team were unable to conclude a challenging season by winning the South-East England Schools’ FA Championship after suffering defeat in the LC Hill Trophy Final.

Having finished at the top of the Group 1 Table by virtue of victories over Sussex (3-2), Inner London (3-0), Surrey (3-2) and Buckinghamshire (4-3), Middlesex then defeated Group 2 runners-up Hertfordshire 5-2 at Ashford Town (Middlesex) FC to secure their place in the Final against old rivals Kent, who had enjoyed a 4-3 victory over Middlesex during the League phase of competition.

In the decider at the Watford FC Training Ground, both teams started well and there was nothing to separate the sides in the first twenty minutes. If anything, Middlesex had the slight edge in possession, yet it was Kent who took the lead through Middlesex defenders not picking players up, which led to the goalkeeper coming out to try and cover, leaving the goal open.
