2013 Bill Turner Cup for Boys & Bill Turner Trophy for Girls

By Greg Danvers

The contestants for the 2013 Finals Series have been decided for both the boys and girls competitions; the national finale to the 15-years-and-under High Schools Football knock-out tournament.

High School teams, in excess of 400 across both boys and girls, from far north as Cairns to Melbourne in the south, have contested the prestigious competition administered by the committee of Northern NSW Schools Football Incorporated.

There are just four teams left standing in both the Bill Turner Cup and Bill Turner Trophy. 

This will be the first year that Mr Turner will not attend the finals. Mr Turner passed away peacefully in February this year. More at: http://www.billturnersoccer.com.au/2013/02/6841/

The finals series will be held in the City of Lake Macquarie, in the Football state of Northern NSW on September 3 & 4.
