The ties are to be played by 29 March

Dean Close v Repton
Norwich v Oakham
Warwick v Reeds
Whitgift v Canford

The eight quarter finalists have qualified based on their final standings in the Tier 1 League that has run over the Autumn and Spring terms. 21 teams entered the league which is new for 2018-19. It was developed based the insight gained from the Junior Competitions Review where high performing schools were seeking more regular high level competition.  

The League saw teams put into three Area Leagues of seven teams, so each teams has had three home and three away matches. It has been very successful with very positive and constructive feedback from schools engaging with England Hockey. It will run again in 2019-20 along with a parallel Girls’ league.

The eight quarter finalists are the top two teams in each of three Area Leagues plus the two third placed teams with the best playing record.  League winners, Whitgift (East), Dean Close (West) and Warwick (North) were guaranteed a home draw. 

The four winning quarter finalists will participate in the semi finals at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on Wednesday 1st May with the final the following day.
