Newtownards Cup:

The 2011 -2012 season will see the second running of a championship style competition during our men’s club lacrosse season, which will be a completely separate competition to the league. This competition will be called the ‘Newtownards’ Cup.

Teams that may not compete on their own in the ILL (e.g. Trinity, Belfast, Cork, a UCD 2nd team) will have the opportunity to compete as their own team in the Newtownards Cup. All clubs will be contacted from late December – mid January to confirm their interest in competing for the Newtownards Cup.

The Cup will operate on a quarter final / semi-final / final basis, depending on the amount of competing teams. There will be an open draw to determine the drawings for each game (held in mid-January).
