The Candyman Cup was donated in 1981 by Doug Linkhorn, proprietor of Empire Confectionery (hence the name),
for competition between the winners of the
North Island’s “Rees Scroll” at Teams of Ten, and the
South Island’s “Andrew & Faulkner Shield” shoots.
The 2019 match was shot between Manawatu and Mid Canterbury, with Manawatu taking the win by a well-deserved 69 points.
