The Tottenham Academy team will play their first match in the Northern Ireland Milk Cup at Shamrock Park, Portadown, the home of Portadown Football Club. To mark the competition's 30th Anniversary, the local County teams have been given the opportunity to play their opening games in their home county before the competition returns to its traditional venues in the north coast areas around Coleraine.
The draw for the NI Milk Cup 2012 was made at the end of May with decisions on the venues being announced recently by the organising committee.
The match against County Armagh will kick off at 5pm at Shamrock Park, Portadown on Saturday, 21st July, 2012.
Spurs then face two teams whom they played last year:
Monday, 23rd July, 2012
v South Coast Strikers (USA) at Scroggy Road, Limavady at 7pm
Tuesday, 24th July, 2012
v Otago (NZ) at Coleraine Showgrounds, Coleraine at 7pm.
Following the opening three matches, the tournament becomes a knock-out competition to decide the winners and other placings. Last summer, Spurs missed out on reaching the top section of the knock-out competition due to losing their third match to South Coast Strikers. They did, however, exact revenge by defeating them on penalties to finish fifth in the play-off for fifth and sixth place in the competition.
