The Football Services team ensures the smooth operation of the 19 County Cup Competitions each season. These range from under 12’s through to open age competitions and our Senior Cup. All the Cup Finals are held at The County Ground, culminating in a prestigious event that celebrates the immense success of the finalists.
I am delighted to be the Executive Lead for our ‘County Cup’ Football Advisory Board, which brings together those from our footballing community who want to be directly involved with the Cup Competitions, ensuring excellence in how they are run, and looking at ways we can improve them, each year, to safeguard their future and create the best environment for them to prosper and grow.
