Stage set for School Challenge Cup this Sunday


The inaugural School Challenge Cup is all set to take place at Aldershot Garrison Sports Complex on Sunday 18 November.

Six schools, invited from the Top 16 at last year’s National Schools, will compete in a new knockout competition across 40-minute matches using the new FIL rules for the first time at school level; including 10-a-side, self-start, and reduced numbers at the draw.

The School Challenge Cup will give the top performing schools in the country the opportunity to test themselves over longer matches than at the National Schools Championships and showcase school lacrosse at the highest level.
