* The Childrens Board are enquiring to see if any club wishes to donate a trophy for underage competitions. If any club wishes to do this they will have the opportunity to put a name on the trophy. The Childrens Board will then allocate this or these trophies to county underage competitions. 

At present we have approx sixteen county underage competitions from under thirteen through to Minor. Each year some of these trophies have to be replaced for various reasons (wear and tear, accidental damage etc) it is hoped that if we have access to better quality trophies they will stand the test of time much better.
