Recap

Irish-named players Joe Cafferty and Eric Murphy played a starring role in the Örebro Black Knights run to the Swedish American Football Championship game in 2015. There linebacker Eric Murphy intercepted Carlstad Crusaders’ Quarterback A Hermandsson’s pass in the second quarter, setting up Kicker Joe Cafferty’s Field Goal which put the Black Knights 10-7 up.

It was to be the highpoint for the Örebro team, however, as Carlstad Crusaders scored five touchdown’s in a row before the Black Knights added a late consolation Touchdown to leave the score 42-17 at the final whistle to Carlstad Crusaders, who won their sixth Swedish title in a row, and would go on to win the Champions League Final versus Serbia’s Vukovi Belgrade later in the season [see References 2-3]. The Game was the Crusaders 13th SM-Final appearance in 14 years as the dominant team in Swedish American Football showed no signs of letting up.

The League was reduced by two teams for 2016 after some big mis-matches involving the games between teams in the top and bottom half of the standings, with Kristianstad Predators and Västerås Roedeers made the drop to Division 1.

Recap

Almost all games went to form in the National Division Management Association Youth League in 1989. The top League of Youth Kitted American Football in Britain in 1989 was won by Leicester Panthers 2-0 thanks to a safety versus London Olympians in atrocious weather in November. The Panthers were deserving winners having won all six regular season games and then defeated Fylde Falcons of Blackpool, Lancashire, 50-0 in the Semi-Finals.

Fylde had been lucky to get into the playoffs with their 2-4 record, the same as Northampton Stormbringers and Manchester Spartans, but the Stormbringers appeared to have been excluded from the playoffs due to forfeiting their Week 7 game against Birmingham Bulls, and the Falcons thus won the Head-to-Head tie-breaker with Manchester Spartans whose shock 26-8 victory over the Stormbringers on the Final Week necessitated the three-way tie-breaker. London Olympians (5-1) had defeated Birmingham Bulls (4-2) by a two touchdowns (13-0) in the other Semi-Final. Manchester Allstars finished last although did not discgrace themselves with close losses to Northampton (29-36) and the Spartans (8-16).

About the NDMA Youth League 1989

The National Division Management Association Youth League was the highest level of Youth Kitted Football in Britain in 1989. The NDMA Youth League featured seven Youth teams of NDMA Senior Teams with the top four reaching the playoffs.

Recap

Rhein-Main Rockets won the 1989 United States Air Force in Europe Football Championship with a 37-18 victory over Lakenheath Eagles in the USAFE Championship Game. The Rockets had won the Eifel Division of the Continental Sports Conference by going 8-2, their only defeat coming in Week 3 with a 13-0 loss to Spangdahlen Sabres and Week 5 to Ramstein Rams (17-40). The Rockets then proceeded to win the CSC Semi-Finals 10-7 in overtime versus Sembach Tigers and then upset the Ramstein Rams 26-0 in the CSC Final.

The United Kingdom Sports Conference was a single league in 1989, playing 7 games as opposed to 10 in 1988 and in the Continental Sports Conference in 1989. The Regular season Championship was won by Upper Heyford Skykings with a 7-0 record, but the Lakenheath Eagles, who started 0-3 just got better and better as the season went on, winning their last four Conference Games before defeating Upper Heyford 13-7 in the UKSC Semi-Finals and then the Alconbury Spartans 12-3 in the UKSC Final. They could not however continue the run all the way to the USAFE Championship Game.

Lakenheath Eagles later played an Irish All-Star team in 1991 and Alconbury Spartans and Ramstein Rams had played games in Ireland in the 1950s and 1960s.

Recap

With the season cancelled in 2020 and curtailed in 2021 due to COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions, the Craigavon Cowboys played four games – two against Northern Ireland rivals Belfast Knights, losing both (30-13 and 28-13) and two against the other Belfast Premier Division team the Trojans, losing 21-20 in a game they came back from 21-0 down at halftime in, giving them hope they could win the return in People’s Park, Portadown, which they did, 41-18, with a fourth quarter blast of 27 points to finish the season on 1-3. South Dublin Panthers were also due to play friendlies against the Belfast Trojans but both were cancelled due to a large number of significant injuries to the Panthers, presumably picked up in a game versus the Knights, although no evidence of such games has been found by Eirball.

Recap

The first three Maritime Bowls were won by three different teams – Halifax Shockers (Nova Scotia) in 2002, Saint John Wanderers (New Brunswick) in 2003 and Moncton Marshals (New Brunswick) in 2004. Thereafter a number of Dynasties took home the Terry McIntyre Cup – Saint John Wanderers in 2005 to 2006, Riverview Mustangs (New Brunswick) 2007 to 2009, and then Moncton Mustangs in 2010. There was no Champion in 2011 as the winner failed to pay their dues and then in 2012 Halifax Shockers won their second McIntyre Cup. Saint John Wanderers then won four straight from 2013 to 2016 before Moncton Mustangs won again in 2017. Saint John Wanderers won the Maritime Bowl back in 2018 and then Moncton Mustangs again won the Maritime Bowl for the McIntyre Cup in 2019. There was no League in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of Irish interest is the Cup awarded to the winners of the Maritime Bowl is named after Terry McIntyre, one of the founders of the New Brunswick Senior Football League. McIntyre is an Irish name. Also of Interest to those reading in Ireland is that the home of Saint John Wanderers is Shamrock Park, and it is here that the Maritime Bowl was played in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 with Saint John Wanderers the team with Home Field advantage due to being Regular Season Champions.

Shamrock Park in Saint John, New Brunswick [See Reference 10 for more Information and further reading]

About the Maritime Football League and the McIntyre Cup

Terry McIntyre, one of the founders of the New Brunswick Senior Football League donated a Trophy, named the McIntyre Cup, which has been awarded annually to the Champions of the Maritime Bowl, the Championship Game of the Maritime Football League since 2005. The Maritime Football League was formed in 2005 by former members of the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Senior Football Leagues.
