SALTEX College Cup 2018

The SALTEX College Cup, sponsored by Ransomes, is a student-led sports turf challenge - an academic test of turf management knowledge for student competitors, being staged for the second year at SALTEX. The winning college will not only win the cup, but receive a cheque for £500, an Amazon voucher, work experience at a top world stadia, plus more.
