As some of you may know, this competition has been run over the past number of years as a 10 a side blitz format which has proved very successful with over 6 clubs taking part in last year’s competition. This year we aim to extend the competition to 10 clubs and make it a fun family day out as an end of season competition. Opting for the 10 a side format makes it a lot easier for clubs to arrange a full side so no excuses!

Rules are as follows:

10 players a side: 5 forwards, 5 backs.
7 Minutes each half.
Roll-on/Roll-off unlimited substitutions.
Kicking allowed anywhere on pitch.
Lifting allowed in line-outs.
Penalty kicks and drop-goals allowed.
Try scoring team must restart from half way.
All other normal rules apply.


We aim to go for a 12pm start and hope to finish up around 3pm on Saturday 20th May. Once we have confirmation from all teams taking part we will run 2 pools on the day with the top 2 in each pool playing off in the final for The Fox Cup and the runners up in each pool playing off in the plate final for The Kiely’s Cup.

Family day out:

We also want the day to be family friendly so we have also arranged some bouncy castles and face painting for the children as well as a BBQ
