Invicta Men Confirm Elite Status With MWNTS Top 5 Finish

19 May 2024

Invicta Touch’s elite men’s team confirmed their status as one of the top teams in England with a 5th-place finish in this season’s Men’s & Women’s National Touch Series at the final round in Leamington Spa on Saturday.

For the first game of the day the stallions were handed the toughest possible quarter-final draw against number one seeds London Scorpions. Playing three players short of a full 14-man squad, Invicta lost 11-3 to the eventual champions.

After that early set-back, Invicta bounced back to defeat Manchester Foxes 8-5 to confirm Division One status for next year before finishing the day with a narrow 8-7 victory over Cambridge to finish the men’s and women’s season ranked as the 5th best men’s team in the country. Attention now turns to the elite mixed series, which begins in Burton-on-Trent on 8th June.

Team: Ryan Attwood, Matthew Bate, James Firth, Gus Lister, JJ Lister, Toby Lister, Charlie Meredith, Stuart Meredith, Vaughn Meredith, Christian Scott, Ryan Winter
