Invicta's Elite Mixed Team Earn Promotion to Division One

10 June 2024

Invicta finished as Division Two runners-up at the first round of the mixed National Touch Series in Burton-on-Trent at the weekend, earning promotion to Division One in the process.

With five debutants the team exceeded expectations, winning two out of three pool games to earn a place in the cup quarter-finals. A comfortable win over London Scorpions’ third team was followed by a narrow victory over Cheltenham Tigers in the semi-final, which set-up a final rematch against London Vipers, whom we had defeated by a single score earlier in the day.

The Vipers got their revenge with a 5-2 win but both sides earned promotion to Division Two for the next round back in Burton in two weeks’ time, where they will compete among the top 16 mixed teams in the country.
