UCD Claim Harding Cup for 2013

11 February 2013

The IUFU Harding Cup tournament was held in University of Ulster, Coleraine Friday 8th to Sunday 9th February 2013.

Great credit is due to all concerned at UUC for all their efforts and support and in particular Tom Stark for his continued help and enthusiasm in organising IUFU competitions.

As always the pitches at Coleraine were excellent despite the terrible weather conditions and the hospitality was equally good especially the hot soup!

In addition, the IUFU appreciate the sponsorship acquired by Tom Stark for the top goal scorer of the tournament (The Anchor Bar, Portstewart) and the player of the tournament award sponsored and presented by Alan Braithwaite, Abacus.
