ISFA was extremely grateful to Bolton School for organising an excellent North-West Tournament which produced a very high standard of football on 27th February.

Two groups of six teams played five games per team to yield four semi-finalists.  In Group A, Lady Barn House proved the surprise package of the day, topping the group with three wins and two draws, narrowly pipping St. Bede’s College only on goal difference.  Meanwhile, in Group B, a very impressive Bury Grammar School won four and drew one of their matches to finish ahead of the hosts, Bolton, who also won four but lost their other game.

Bury Grammar School defeated St. Bede’s 4-0 in one semi-fial but this was an extremely good game in which the scoreline did not do justice to St. Bede’s.  In the other semi-final Bolton defeated Lady Barn House 1-0.

A single goal in the Final gave Bury victory over last season’s North-West champions, Bolton.  However, this year both finalists qualified for the National Finals and, on this evidence, there is every reason to expect that both the North-West representatives will challenge at St. George’s Park.
