9 Teams from across Leicestershire, Leicester City & Rutland, took part in the first Team Leicestershire Final on 16/11/2015.
'Team Leicestershire' is the new umbrella Association for all traditional competitive school sport in secondary schools across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.
The main aim of Team Leicestershire is to ensure that as many young people as possible are able to represent their school and compete in a variety of sports / competitions, both at a local level against neighbouring schools, but then with the opportunity to progress through to county finals.
Team Leicestershire also aims to re-ignite, support and profile our County Representative Sides, so that our most talented young people have the opportunity to represent their County with pride on a regional and national stage.
In a closely fought contest which saw all 9 schools show some great talent, it was English Martyrs (West Leicester) that took home the gold medals. Hastings High School (Hinckley & Bosworth) came second, with The Uppingham School (Rutland) finishing in third position.
