The ‘Tommy Russell Memorial Cup’ is awarded each year to the Premier League team that wins the annual Cup competition, there is a similar event for the Academy League teams.

Tommy-Russell-head-aThis award is named for a former Little League player (pictured left) in the Arrows team who was tragically involved in a fatal car accident in 1990, Tommy had been a recipient of our ‘Bobby Jeal’ award but had left the league at the time of his death.

 

These Cup matches are usually played at the end of the season as a competition separate from the League Championships, it is therefore possible for the same team to win both events. In the case of the Premier teams this has happened several times with Rangers achieving the ‘double’ on four occasions, Colts three times, Lions twice, Kestrels  and Eagles once.

The six Premier teams are drawn into two groups of three with each team playing the other teams in the same group once only on a league basis, the winner of each group going forward to the Final. The Academy teams are similarly divided into two groups in a separate draw.
