2019 Skellern Cup
Attendance records were smashed for the third edition of the NSFA Skellern Cup, held at North Turramurra Recreation Area.
The tournament, aimed at primary school girls from Years 3 to 6, featured over 700 players from 57 teams across the NSFA region, stretching from Berowra down to Neutral Bay.
Teams attain points throughout the day across a broad range of criteria including goals scored, fair play, equal playing time and cheering on their teammates, with the Skellern Cup for each day going to the team with the highest number of points.
The Junior Cup was awarded to Gordon East Public School, while the Senior Cup went to Pymble Public School.
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!
