Deloitte Corbet Cup and Shield is a great success

The Deloitte Corbet Cup and Shield finals took place on Tuesday 14th May, with Rovers White winning the Deloitte Corbet Cup, defeating St Martins U12 2-0 and Rangers Black beating Sylvans White to win the Deloitte Corbet Shield. 

The under-12 tournament had more than 175 players across the two divisions, with 14 teams playing against each other overall. 

The  latest tournament, which has been sponsored by Deloitte for over  10 years, began in September 2023 with all teams playing against each other on a round-robin basis. The teams were split into two groups with the top four teams competing for the Deloitte Corbet Cup and the remaining four teams competing for the Deloitte Corbet Shield.
