Football Tournament

22nd Nov 2019

A mixed boys and girls Year 9 team played in a football tournament today in Mallusk, Belfast. Conditions were tough in the cold, wet and windy weather. Pitches were muddy and slow to play on. The team battled hard and remained undefeated throughout. We came away with four draws and one win in the group stage which narrowly put us out of progressing to the semi-finals.   We were strong in defence with Leah, Lily, Andrew and Daniel all working hard to keep the opposition out. Ben had a great tournament and showed confidence and assurance in goals. Our midfield of Ryleigh, Jack, Josh, Christopher, Grace and Adam worked tirelessly all over the pitch creating many chances and opening up the play. Our strikers of James and Ben worked hard up front causing lots of problems for the opposing defenders.

There is a lot of promise for both the boys and girls in this squad and it’s great to see all the training paying off!

Well done to all players involved!
