Trojans win their first English National League title

The English Korfball Association (EKA) National League Premier Division title came down to the last match of the season on April 6th, with Mitcham (London) taking on Trojans (London).


It was the final match of the season for both teams and it would decide who would lift the trophy. Trojans had won the earlier match againt Mitcham, but on recent performance it could have gone either way this time.

Mitcham were looking to show their continued dominance in the English domestic competition, whilst Trojans were looking to secure their first League title, after winning the Cup competition last season for the first time.

On the day, there was little between the teams, but there had to be one winner, and this time it was Trojans who came out on top, winning the match by a single goal, and with it, the coveted League Trophy.


Both teams play in the Cup quarter finals on April 20th, and no doubt they will both be hoping to win the Cup event as well.

At the top of the EKA First Division, Kingfisher easily won their match against second from bottom North Downs, to secure second place in the division and, perhaps more importantly, the chance to play off for a place in the Premier Division agains the 7th placed team in the current Premier Division.

At the bottom of the EKA Premier Division, despite some extremely close games, Invicta Sharks (Kent) are automatically relegated (replaced by Norwich Knights). The 7th place was fought between Nomads and Croydon (both London). Croydon had won the reverse fixture 11-6, so Nomads needed to win by at least 5 goals in order to go above Croydon in the table. Croydon played a slow and controlled game though, denying the home side the chance to get ahead by more than 2 goals at any one time. At the end of the 60 minutes the match was a draw, which means Nomads will meet Kingfisher on April 27th to decide who will be playing Premier Division Korfball next season.

And at the bottom of the EKA First Division, Supernova have finished in 8th place, which means they will have to playoff against the winner of new applicants Highbury or Tornadoes.
