10:30: Women’s Semi-Final 1 – Bowdon Hightown v Buckingham
THE STORY OF QUALIFICATIONReigning champions Bowdon Highton continued their remarkable run of making each indoor finals day since the six-a-side format was re-introduced in 2015/16, finishing top of the Women’s Premier Division with Sally Walton as the league’s top goalscorer, bagging an impressive 18 goals.
East Grinstead and Slough – the 2016 and 2017 winners respectively – were hot on Bowdon’s heels, both finishing just one point behind, while Buckingham snatched the final spot from Clifton Robinsons on goal difference.
In the Men’s Premier Division it wasn’t so easy for last year’s champions East Grinstead but they still made it through to the finals in fourth placeand will certainly be up for the fight as they aim to win a record 14th title.
They will face a Hampstead & Westminster side who have continued their remarkable indoor rise as they topped the table despite only being promoted last season, winning each of their games and finishing with a goal difference of +40.
The other semi-finals sees 2017 champions Surbiton come up against Sevenoaks – appearing in their first Finals day in recent memory – in what should be an exciting game, with the latter emerging as 5-4 winners during qualification.
