1. The dates for the 1st Round matches are on the site. Please note that all factors (e.g. school half terms/the dates for the opening rounds of the AFA Senior) were considered thus dates may only be changed with the prior agreement of the Hon Secretary.
2. Wherever possible, the ties should be played at the school of the home team on a grass pitch.
3. It has not gone unnoticed that there has been an unwelcome spate of last-minute withdrawals over the past few seasons - with scant regard for the traditions of the Competition and even less regard for the schools who kindly make catering arrangements or indeed those spectators who have made travel plans.
Given the Arthur Dunn Cup is an invitational tournament, any Club unwilling/unable to fulfil its fixtures is liable to have its invitation to the competition revoked.
