Southend Sabres pulled off a big shock in the British Youth American Football Association Youth Kitted League Final in 1992 with a 28-8 victory over Glasgow Lions in the Final. MVP Brian Sargent and Simon Jones scored two touchdowns each for the victors and Paul Bushell added the two-point conversion as the underdog Sabres rattled the Glasgow Lions with their running game. Craig McCewan scored the Scots only touchdown with a TD reception from QB Jason Hey. Willie Brown added their conversion. The Sabres had finished runners-up to Ipswich Cardinals in the Southern Conference but then went on an amazing playoff run that saw them defeat Eastleigh Devils, Ipswich Cardinals and London Capitals all away from home. The other Conference Champions were Birmingham Bulls (West); Farnham Knights (Capital): Bournemouth Renegades (Coastal); Norwich Devils (Anglian); and Glasgow Lions (Northern).
