Pre-Event Information Guide

2022 Skellern Cup

It was fantastic to see the return of the Skellern Cup in 2022 after 2-year hiatus due to the global pandemic. We saw the Skellern Cup slot into a new spot in the calendar which aligns as a great introduction to club football as well as PSSA. The Skellern Cup aims to be an opportunity where girls who have never played before can join in with friends who play the game and experience the wonders the game has to offer.

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!
