The Goldthorpe Cup, established in 1904, is only open to boys teams. In 2018 the Goldthorpe family decided to support a competition for girls with the aim of giving the name of Leeds' first sporting superstar, and his brothers, further links to the present day game and to a new generation of players and supporters.
When the boys cup competition was established school leaving age was 13 and the players were in their final year of school. To reflect the history of the Goldthorpe Cup and to mirror as far as possible the boys competition the girls cup will be played for by years 7/8.
Thanks are due to Lois Forsell, Competitions Co-ordinator & Girls Rugby Development Officer at Leeds Rhinos Foundation for her help in getting this competition established.
