Report

After a number of seasons as a Northern and Southern Junior Two-Touch League, the Junior Gridiron League became a National Flag Footbal League in 1995 with two sections: Youth (9-15 year olds) and Junior (14-18 year olds). This followed from the successful introduction of Flag Football to the JGL Junior League in 1994.

The Junior Flag Football League was won by the Doncaster Wildcats, who shocked the Brighton B-52s in the National JGL Bowl 20-0. The B-52s managed to shut out the Wildcats in a spirited second-half display, but the damage was done in the first half, when Doncaster scored three touchdowns without reply.

Doncaster ran in a 42 yard TD to open the scoring in the first quarter, and then added two converted touchdowns to lead 20-0 at the half, which was how it stayed until the end of the game.
