Preview: SEMLA 6’s Tournament, Sat 25th April in Reading

Milton Keynes will again be attending the annual Southern League 6-a-side tournament, held in Reading, on Saturday 25th April.

This year sees the tournament run with a new format. Out goes teams organised in 3 pre-defined divisions, based on their standard of play, replaced with pools of randomly selected teams, followed by a series of games to determine overall tournament placings. This new format will be great for the mostly novice MK team as we’ll play against teams from the higher southern league divisions. Yes, we may be beaten badly against some, but as a learning experience it can’t be beaten. After the pool games, we’ll probably be matched up against novice teams so hope to finish the day with some victories under our belts.
