John Waring All Ireland Schoolboys Cup announced

The new John Waring All-Ireland schoolboy’s cup has been added to the school’s calendar for the season, in addition to next week’s regular competition.

The tournament will mirror the same format as the ESB Kate Russell and will take place for the first time this year on the March 19 and 20, 2009 in Grange Road.

Schools will qualify through their Branch Senior Cup Competition with both the winners and runners up qualifying for the John Waring Schoolboys Cup. The six schools will compete in two pools of three on day one with the classification and final being played on day two.

This cup has been named after the late John Waring who contributed hugely to Ulster and Irish Schoolboys Hockey throughout his life.
