Lightning Cup 2019

The Lightning Cup is back again in 2019, scheduled for the 13th/14th April. There are two divisions (Cup and Shield) per age group, so make sure to register early in order to guarantee your team a spot in your division of preference.


Registrations are now closed.

  • There will be a Boys/Open comp and a Girls comp.

  • These will range from Under 8s through to Under 18s.

  • Each will aim to feature a Cup and a Shield division.

  • Cup is a higher division more suitable for NPL/Div 1/Rep teams.

  • Shield is a lower division more suitable for Div 2/Div 3 teams.

  • The Under 13 Boys to Under 18 Boys divisions will take place on the Sunday the 14th of April.

  • All other divisions will take place on Saturday the 13th of April.

  • The daily schedules will be provided once the draw is finalised. However, teams will be expected to be present at their respective playing fields by 8 AM on their corresponding day of play. Matches will be aimed to finish by 4 PM, at which point closing ceremonies will begin.

There will be a managers' briefing at 7:30 AM on the day. Each team is expected to have a representative present at the briefing, the ONLY exception being teams that have to travel a long way such that they will not be able to arrive by 7:30 AM.


The Lightning Cup will this year be held at three different locations depending on your division:
