2012 Tournament for the Hilton Petone Cup

Proud sponsors of Petone Football Club.


Tournament Divisions

Hello and welcome to the 2012 Hilton Petone Tournament, proudly sponsored by Caltex Railway Avenue. I would like to thank Campbell & Pam for their continued sponsorship and encourage everyone to support them by using their services at Railway Avenue, Lower Hutt.

Division 1

Our tournament has two major changes to venue and scheduling, due to the planned artificial turf installation at Memorial Park. This project means only two grounds at Petone are available, so we have secured both artificial turfs at Wakefield Park. This has allowed us to host the entire tournament on Sundays - which has proven a popular choice with most clubs and is something we are seriously considering for future years. Another change this year is to group numbers. Division 1 will have two groups of six with five games each and the group winners going directly into the final. While the knock-out stage is eliminated it does guarantee each team five games. Additional entries for Division 2 result in two groups having five teams and a bye and two groups with four teams. The knock-out stage will still apply but with semi finals only for the two groups of five. I would like to thank Tournament Organiser Barry Pickering who has made all the necessary arrangements while managing a very heavy work schedule. This was no more apparent than when he distributed the initial draw while at a business conference in Rome! I must also acknowledge the support we continue to receive from the Wellington Referee’s Association, the Hutt City Council and Radio Sport. Particular thanks to Barry Tasker for organising the referees availability for Sundays and to Jason Pine for the Radio Sport coverage of the draw and results. Thank you as well to our Management Committee and other club volunteers who continue to help with the organising and running of this event. We are very proud of our tournament and are grateful for the continued support we receive every year from the local football community. You can tune in to Radio Sport for results or on online at Thank you for your participation, and remember to play hard but play fair. Craig Deadman, Chairman, Petone Football Club

Did you know that… The Hilton-Petone Cup has been contested for every year since 1955, this year’s being the 58th tournament. The ‘Hilton’ reference in the name of the Cup reflects that Otto Hilton, the then Chairman of the Petone AFC and a Board member of the NZFA, was the donor of the Cup and the primary inspiration behind the tournament. Otto, his brother Arthur, and Arthur’s son Tony, all became life members of the Petone club. The tournament resulted from clubs’ complaints that they did not get enough football, with the championship season in the 1950s finishing in late July. The name of the Cup is actually the Hilton-Petone Friendly Cup and the main objectives of the tournament were “to further the game and to foster closer relations amongst players in an informal and happy atmosphere.” In the first 10 years or so a benefit of the tournament, with entries from the top three grades, was the opportunity it gave smaller and lower grade clubs to have a crack at the higher profile clubs, and there were a number of major upsets. And not only did it give clubs a chance to blood younger players against senior opposition, but it gave the referees a chance to expose relatively inexperienced members of the ‘whistle-brigade’ to matches involving higher level teams. The tournament was an end-of-season event until 1971, and in 1972 it was reconstituted as a pre-season tournament to prepare teams for the Central League. At the same time, the tournament changed from one in which every game was knock-out to one that included a round-robin championship series within each of several groups to qualify the required number of teams for knock-out rounds.

The new structure was so successful in providing good competition that teams from as far away as Gisborne, Napier and New Plymouth used to enter to provide themselvews with a high level of pre-season competition. The expansiveness of the tournament with up to 36 team entries, and its attractiveness to teams from diverse levels, led to a change from the occasional upset results to some very one-sided games and high scores arising from the seeded groups. In 1987 a second division was introduced to offer a competition among lower grade entrants, and division two winners were awarded the Hilton-Petone Cup Mark II. The Hilton-Petone Cup Mark II had been donated by Arthur Hilton in 1979 following the theft of the original from the Stop Out Clubrooms, and was awarded to the Tournament winners until 1985. The original was found in 1985 and again presented from 1986 onwards to Tournament winners. The Petone FC has been privileged to have access to such quality grounds as those at Memorial Park for the championship rounds since 1986. Before then, games were most usually played at local primary schools. With the advent of artificial surfaces more grounds are becoming available pre-season so Petone FC is trialling all Sunday games this year to move away from the inconvenience to many of mid week games within daylight hours. Another innovation this year is a 12 team Division One where each team is now guaranteed 5 games of football, with the two group winners going directly to the final.
