Results - 25th January
2016/2017 Season

Seventeen teams attended round 2 of the U10 boys county shield competition at the Shrewsbury Sports Village on Wednesday 25th January.  Eighteen teams had originally been invited but unfortunately there was a no show from Castle House Primary School.

The seventeen teams played in 6 groups of 3 with the winner of each group progressing to the knock-out stage.

In the semi-finals St. Giles notched a 1-0 victory against Greenfields and Redhill beat a gallant Market Drayton team by 2 goals to nil.
