NLD Girls Conference Cup

Siobhan Peeling introduces the new NLD Girls’ Conference Cup competitions…

The NLD Girls Conference Cup has been introduced for the 2023/24 season to provide girls in the u14s, u16s, and u18s age groups with competitive playing opportunities. The aim is to bridge the gap between our popular development Pitch Up & Play events (“PUaPs”) and National Cup or representative rugby and to improve the playing experience for girls across NLD.

Participation in the Cup was opened to girls in full teams and in clusters and we are pleased to have nine teams/clusters from across our counties entered at u14s and u16s and four at u18s.

The priority of the Cup is safe participation for as many girls as possible in some version of competitive rugby. All games will be played in line with England Rugby’s Core Values and the ‘Game On’ principle. The format is a waterfall format so all teams will participate in a finals day on 28th April to round off an exciting season in girls’ rugby across NLD.
