'Northern Ireland Youth Football
The Jimmy Jones Memorial Craigavon Cup sponsored by
ABP Food Group is an invitational tournament for boys
age groups at Under 7, Under 8, Under 9, Under 10, Under
11 and Under 12. We also have a dedicated girls section
at Under 10s.
Along with multiple competitions to play for within
the one age group the overall best performing academy
will be crowned winners of The Jimmy Jones Memorial
Craigavon Cup. This will act as an incentive for clubs
to be fully represented at all the available age groups.
The 2021 tournament will once again be held at Portadown
People's Park. 2021 will be year 8 of the tournament.
Previously the event was held at Gordon Playing Fields
and Mourneview Park in Lurgan. The tournament's first
year was proudly part of Glenavon F.C's 125th year anniversary
The tournament is proud to have attracted top English
club Leeds United and top Scottish club Rangers F.C
to the tournament previously.
