Deploy State Cup Finals shine at VSP

16.07.2017

Valentine Sports Park was gripped with one of the most important dates in Football NSW’s Association calendar, the 2017 Deploy State Cup Finals as hundreds flocked to take part in the state based tournament on Sunday 16th of July.

Swarms of fans from across NSW took in fifteen high quality and octane matches as thirty teams locked horns from the Grade 12s Boys and Girls competitions right through to the Over 35 Men and All Age Women in what was a memorable day for all participants of the wonderful game.

Four age groups were named after former administrators, players and football advocates who have assisted in the development of the game in NSW.

The 12 Boys were playing for the Frank Broughton Cup, the 12 Girls the Cheryl Salisbury Cup, the 21 Men’s the Robertson Cup while the All Age Men fought out for the Bill Cullinan Cup.

Football South Coast’s Shellharbour Junior Football Club kicked off proceedings with a well-deserved victory against Hills Football’s Winston Hills to be awarded the Frank Broughton Cup. (Click here to view the official match report).

While in the Cheryl Salisbury Cup, North West Sydney Women’s side Gladesville Sharks defeated Eastern Suburbs’ Maroubra United 1-0 in what was a great spectacle. (Click here to view the official match report).

The Robertson Cup, for the third year running, saw one of Sutherland Association’s most decorated teams, the Menai Hawks 21’s, defeat opponents Mt Pritchard with a scorching 6-1 victory. It was to be the Hawks’ third State Title in three successive seasons a massive feat for any grassroots club in NSW.  (Click here to view the official match report).

It was Football South Coast that grabbed the plaudits on a great day for the Association as they recorded four victories each in various age groups.

Sutherland Shire Football Association followed up with two victories while Northern Suburbs, Hills Football, St George, Macarthur, Blacktown, Canterbury, Central Coast and North West Sydney Women’s Associations each had a team that celebrated a Finals victory.

A special mention to Football South Coast's Albion Park SC who picked up two victories for the club in the All Age Women and 18 Women's categories.

Major sponsors of the event Deploy were on hand to present various Player of the Match awards by presenting special edition footballs to players selected by Football NSW journalists on the day.

Congratulations to everyone involved in what was a glorious day for Football in NSW.
