Tyrone Milk Cup Association currently requires a Manager to take charge of their Junior (U15) squad for the NI Dale Farm Milk Cup Tournament in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

This is a fantastic opportunity for managers/ coaches to apply to be involved in the premier youth football tournament in Europe, if not the World, and be part of a tournament which has been in existence for the last 31 years.

The tournament can boost alumni such as David Beckham, Paul Scholes, the Neville brothers, Niall McGinn, Jamie Hargin, Stuart Dallas and local talent like Chris Heagarty, Jamie Glackin and Chris Lowe to name only a few.

The NI Dale Farm Milk Cup is the pinnacle of youth football and can open many doors for young players both at a local and national level, and is also an opportunity for Managers and Coaches to test themselves against the very best youth team coaches in the world.

This is a voluntary position and the Tyrone Milk Cup Association are all volunteers, however the position brings with it a lot of responsibility and requires the utmost commitment.

Applicants must have a minimum of an IFA Level 1 coaching Badge and will be required to produce valid Child Protection and First Aid certificates, and will also be asked to pick a backroom staff of three others, including a goalkeeping coach.

Candidates are asked to send their CV to the Tyrone Milk Cup Secretary Andy Kelly either by way of email on or post to 12 McKinney Park, Cookstown, Co Tyrone BT80 9RD.

Applications must be received by 12 noon on Friday 12th December and interviews for the Junior Managers job will take place on the week commencing Monday 15th December.

We look forward to receiving your CVs and would like to wish everyone who applies all the very best in the subsequent interviews.
