The respective 2020 FINALS for each of the Tursa Employment & Training ANZAC Day Cup and Callan McMillan Memorial Shield competitions have been confirmed.
The inaugural ANZAC Day Cup was contested locally in 1950 Men’s when Methodist United took out the honours. The 2020 final will see Alstonville FC meet Goonellabah FC with Villa aiming to claim its first men’s premier league trophy, while the Hornets get a chance to claim its first ANZAC Day Cup Men’s Premier League title since winning the title in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
The Women’s Final has Alstonville FC and Lismore Thistles SC meet at Crawford Park on Sunday in a replay of the 2019 Callan McMillan Memorial Shield ‘A’ Division final. Both clubs have a rich history in the competition, with each having claimed four Callan McMillan Memorial Shield ‘A’ Division titles. Lismore Thistles is seeking to defend the title from 2019 and the club is shooting for a third successive winning campaign in the competition. Alstonville FC however will look to add to its impressive record in the Callan McMillian Memorial Shield competition that the club last won in 2013.
