Girls Cup Competitions Entry Process & Round Dates 2019/20

After successful competitions last season at both Under 18 and Under 15, I am happy to announce that entries are now open for both competitions here. If you intend to enter at both age groups, then you will need to complete the survey twice. Please ensure that the survey is completed in its entirety.

Please be aware that there will not be a confirmation email upon completion.

In an effort to improve the competition, we have amended the early stages of the competition so that clubs will now compete across 4 regions as opposed to 6 areas. This removes the need for triangular semi-finals at both an area and national level, allowing for teams to play full matches throughout the entire competition. Teams will still be grouped locally in the pool stages in an attempt to minimise travel distance and times. There will now also be a regional quarter final round added in January as part of the new competition structure.

 

Please see below for the round dates:

 

Round 1                                        29th September 2019

Round 2                                        10th November 2019

Round 3                                        15th December 2019

Regional Quarter Finals          12th January 2020

Regional Semi-Finals               9th February 2020

Regional Final                             15th March 2020

National Semi-Final                  5th April 2020

Final                                               3rd May 2020

 

The deadline for entries is Friday 19th July at 5PM.

National Under 18 Cup Entry Process & Dates

Entries for the 2019/20 National Under 18 Cup competition are now open. To enter, please complete this survey in its entirety.

 

Please be aware that there will not be a confirmation email upon completion.

 

Entries are once again capped at 128 teams and priority will be given to the first 128 entries, but consideration will also be given to geographic spread, history in the competition and suitability for the competition.

 

Before you complete the entry form, please look at the dates below and confirm you will be able to fulfil fixtures on these dates. They are the dates set in the National Competition Calendar and there will be very little flexibility on when fixtures can be played. If your local competition organiser has scheduled fixtures for a round date, please raise with them. National Cup fixtures will need to take priority.

 

Round 1                                        19th/20th October 2019

Round 2                                        16th/17th November 2019

The deadline for entries is Friday 19th July at 5pm.

 

Please be aware that in this competition we will be making use of Electronic Match Cards (EMCs), please ensure that someone involved with the U18s team is a Match Card Administrator on GMS so that they can fill in the EMCs. Support materials on EMC can be found here at the bottom of the page.
