ANZAC Cup & Callan McMillan 2016

February 23rd, 2016

Domestic football officially starts in the zone on Friday 26th February when the 2016 Tursa Employment and Training ANZAC Cup and Callan McMillan Memorial Shield competitions commence. With 53 nominations received across the six competitions (an increase from 42 teams in 2015), interest is strong in these historical pre-season competitions.

Lennox Head FC is the defending Men’s Premier Division champions and despite their withdrawal from the top grade for the pointscore competition this season, the Sharks will participate in the Premier Division ANZAC Cup ensuring a ten (10) team competition.

In the women’s Callan McMillan Memorial “A” Division Shield competition, Bangalow will aim to retain their “A” Division title that was won in 2014. An absence of team nominations prevented that competition from proceeding in 2015, but an encouraging number of six (6) teams will contest the 2016 title.

Other competitions will see twelve (12) teams fight out honours for the Open B ANZAC Cup trophy, five (5) aiming to win the Grade 16 title and ten (10) teams jostling for the Callan McMillan Memorial “B” Division shield. Matches are played either Friday nights or Sunday afternoons, with the Callan McMillan Finals to be contested at Oakes Oval on Friday evening 22nd April and all ANZAC Cup Finals to be played at Oakes Oval on Saturday 23rd April.

The draw for each Tursa Employment and Training ANZAC Cup and Callan McMillan competition can be found on the homepage of our website under Fixtures / Results.
