Sandwell Steelers – Adult Programme
After a big realignment in league structure for 2015, our Adult programme remained in the third tier, named the NFC2 South alongside Leicester, Lincolnshire and Peterborough from last season and faced new opponents in Humber Warhawks and Leeds Bobcats. Following a really strong off-season recruitment drive, we finished with a perfect regular season record, 10-0, averaging over 40 points a game and conceding only 10. In the playoffs, we beat divisional rivals Leicester Falcons 21-6 and then dominated the Newcastle Vikings 59-13 to reach the NFC2 Bowl at the John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds. Here we faced divisional rivals again in the shape of the Peterborough Saxons and again we came out on top, 24-7 to gain promotion to Division 1.
