Congratulations to St. Barnabas who claimed the Warwickshire Ladies’ Football Championship in a titanic final against St. Mary’s at Páirc na hÉireann. It is the Nottingham clubs first title since 2015 and we wish them the best representing the county in the upcoming All-Britain Junior Championships.

Commiserations to St. Mary’s, although they finished runners-up the newly formed club combining players from Wolverhampton’s St. Mary’s and Leicester’s Naomh Padraig have made tremendous strides in such a small space of time.
