Harding Memorial Trophy To Be Hosted By Queen's
The Harding Memorial Trophy will be hosted by Queen's between the 7th and 10th of February 2007. The Harding Memorial Trophy is competed for by Freshers' soccer teams from Universities both North and South of the border.
Last year's event was hosted by University College Cork and Queen's Freshers were unlucky to be knocked out on penalties in the semi-final. The Harding Trophy is one of three soccer tournaments for Irish Universities with the Crowley Cup, for Seconds (to be hosted by University of Limerick this year), and the Collingwood Cup, for University Firsts (DCU this year).
The tournament's matches will be held at the Malone Playing Fields (otherwise known as the Dub) between the 7th and 10th of February. Visiting teams will be staying in local hostels during the competition and Queen's Football Club is also organising various events for the visiting sides.
The hosting of the Harding Memorial Trophy also adds to the workload of Queen's F.C. as work is underway to set-up an Academy for Soccer at the University as well.
