Irish FA Elite Performance Director, Jim Magilton and Ian Duncan, Sales Manager - Charles Hurst Vauxhall, Belfast made the draw for the 1st round of the 2013/14 NI Schools Vauxhall Senior Cup.
The draw took place at Charles Hurst Vauxhall on Belfast’s Boucher Road.
The competition continues to grow and across the four different age groups, 108 games will be played across the country in the 1st round of this season’s NI Schools Vauxhall Senior Cup.
In the Senior Cup, due to the number of entries there will be a preliminary round.
Last season, the NISFA introduced the Plate competition for all those teams who get put out in the first round. Due to the huge success of this, the Plate will continue to run as part of the Vauxhall Schools Cup programme.
NISFA Development Officer Conor Marlin said: “It’s great to have a new season about to kick-off. We seed the competition so it means some of the bigger football schools avoid each, though with that said we have some really exciting games to look forward to, including some derbies.
“ All hope for the season is not lost if you lose the 1st round tie, as you then go into the Plate competition.
“It’s important we provide as many opportunities as possible to represent your school on the football field with all competitions culminating in a showpiece Finals Day at Ballymena Showgrounds on 30 April 2014.”
