With a rich football heritage New South Wales Combined High Schools and Sports Plus are excited to be working together as the annual knock out series heads towards 50 years of competition and football history.
The Errea Cup & Trophy competitions have a long football heritage with many Socceroos and Matildas proudly representing their schools and meeting the challenge of negotiating nine knock out rounds in order to be crowned the ERREA Champion school From our most famous Socceroo, Johnny Warren, at Cleveland Street, to Craig Johnston at Booragul, Harry Kewell at Westfields, and exciting young players such as Nathan Burns (now with AEK Athens), our school footballers have all been part of the program which sees over 700 teams and over 12,000 players taking part in the boys? and girls? competitions each year.
Games were played across all areas of the State, as well as the new Sports High division of competition which caters for many of the elite athletes in football programs in New South Wales.
