Libra Lea through to West Midlands Regional League Division 2

Libra Lea unbeaten through qualifying and final play offs to secure their place in West Midlands Senior Regional League division 2 for next season.

Libra LeaAfter what seemed like a very long 3 month campaign, our regional squad girls qualified for the final play offs by winning all 5 of their qualifying league group matches. A tough and nervy day then lay ahead on Sunday 28.06.15, playing 2 full matches against tough opposition. In a very tense first game, and going into the final quarter just one goal up, the Libra girls finally came out on top against Elmdon 42-31, having been behind for most of the first half. A second game to follow, against Bran Nu, was never going to be easy and the game remained tight all the way through. With the scores at 34-28 going into quarter 4, the game was still on a knife edge, but once again the girls dug deep and with some fantastic accurate shooting from Lucy Percival and Emily Priest, were finally able to pull away to secure a 50-37 victory and clinch their place in the regional league for the first time and at the first attempt. A very special day for all the players, club members and supporters of Libra Lea NC.  A wonderful achievement for a club that was only formed in the autumn of 2010, with just a single team of youngsters and a couple of more experienced oldies playing in the Walsall Midweek League.  On behalf of everyone at Libra Lea, we would like to thank everyone for their kind messages of congratulations and good wishes.
