BAFA National Leagues have officially announced the conferences for U17. It’s no surprise that the Highland Wildcats will be in the Scottish Conference, however with the change in qualifying for Britbowl, things could be very different. This year there will be no playoff tournament. Basically the top teams from each conference will gain a place in Britbowl. Come second, and there are no second chances!
