External Competitions

In addition to the regular UCFL competitions, there are 3 “external” competitions available to UCFL teams – the FAI Junior Cup, the LFA Junior Cup and the LFA Junior Shield. All UCFL teams are eligible to enter the FAI Junior Cup, which is the national knockout competition open to all junior teams in the country and the UCFL encourages as many of its teams as possible to enter, particularly those in the top two divisions. The LFA Junior Cup is open to all junior teams in Leinster playing above Division 3 level. The LFA Junior Shield is open to all teams playing at or below Division 3 level.

Entry forms for the FAI Junior Cup can be downloaded here:

The entry fee is also €30 for each of the LFA competitions. The closing date is September 1. However, as September 1 is a Sunday, t closing date is effectively August here too.

UCFL teams can submit their entries by bringing them along to the management meeting next Thursday night (August 22), accompanied by the correct entry fee. Teams with a record of keeping their finances up to date can email a scan of their entry form to the League Treasurer at seamus.doherty@ucfl.ie and Seamus will be happy to forward it to the FAI/LFA along with payment and charge the entry fee to that team’s account.

Teams which choose to submit their entries directly to the LFA/FAI must ensure that the Fixtures Secretary is informed of their entry.
