ISFA Shield 20.03.13

Congratulations to the LHS football team who represented the school at the East Midlands regional finals in March. The team finished 2nd overall in the region and consequently won the Independent Schools Football Association’s shield. The team recorded an impressive 4-0 victory in their opening game against Oakham School and followed this with a battling 2-2 against pre tournament favourites and eventual regional champions Stamford. These results were followed by inspiring victories over Repton and Uppingham. The defence kept three clean sheets on the day and strikers Beth Johnson and Katy Litchfield showed predatory instinct to score several vital goals.
