2017 Skellern Cup
Last year over September 6th – 7th, Northern Suburbs Football Association (NSFA) conducted the first ever NSFA Skellern Cup, a girls football tournament for primary schools across the northern suburbs region of Sydney.
Taking place at the new North Turramurra Recreation Area (NTRA) sports fields over two days, the NSFA Skellern Cup saw over 400 players, teachers and parents from 15 schools take part in what was a wonderful event filled with fun, friendship, good sportsmanship and, most importantly, football!

Behind the Name
The Skellern Cup is named after Amanda and Kimberley Skellern, twin sisters who have played representative club football for Northern Tigers FC for over 10 years after beginning their football careers at local club West Pymble FC. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Skellern sisters over the two days who will be on hand to motivate teams, give advice and soak up the atmosphere!
