Priory Football Tournament

On Friday, Holywood P.S. took part in the annual Priory Cup Football Tournament. They were amongst over 190 boys and girls from the North Down, Ards and Belfast areas competing at the Eddie Irvine Sports Complex in Bangor. Holywood finished top of their group after victories in all 3 of their group games, showing great team work and an all round excellent display of football.

Progressing into the Semi Final of the A Trophy, Holywood came up against Group D winners Ballyholme which promised to be a tough match. After a spirited performance and some inspired goalkeeping, Holywood ran out eventual winners thanks to goals from Zak D and Charlie.

Making their way to the Final, Holywood were joined by N'Ards Model who had comprehensive victories in all of their previous games. With some great individual performances and a hard fought match, Holywood unfortunately came up just short on what was a fantastic day out! Well done to all the boys who left it all out on the pitch and did themselves and their school more than proud! A big thank you to Priory College for organising a great tournament and for the continued support of parents who turned out to cheer the boys on.

SQUAD: Hamish, Zach W, Danny, Oliver, Matthew, Charlie, Zak D and Darcy.

Group Games

  • 4-0 v Bloomfield P.S (Oliver K x 2, Charlie M x2)
  • 2-1 Kilcooley P.S (Zak D, Charlie M)

RBS Six Nations Trophy comes to Holywood

Thanks to one of our HPS parents, Mr Hughes, who kindly arranged for the REAL 6 Nations Trophy to be brought to our school. The boys and girls enjoyed seeing the shiny trophy and some even had time to get  photos with the trophy. We hope the next time we see the trophy on TV it will be the Irish rugby team lifting it as Grand Slam winners!

It was great to welcome Mr Smith to HPS who transported the trophy from England! Mr Peel, Mr Craig and pupils from Sullivan Upper School as well as some boys who play rugby at Holywood Rugby Club who were able to come along too.

Football vs Kilmaine P.S

On Wednesday Holywood kicked off their league campaign against Kilmaine P.S at Spafield playing fields in what promised to be a tough match. Holywood started off the stronger team but after a great display of football from both teams Holywood unfortunately found themselves down 2-0 at half time. The boys regrouped at half time, kept their heads up and continued to bring the game to Kilmaine. After a fantastic second half display Holywood ran out eventual 4-2 winners with some super strikes from Matthew, Darcy and Oliver K. A thoroughly deserved result after a great all round performance. Well done to all the boys involved! A big thank you to all the parent helpers that made the game possible by supplying lifts!   

Holywood P.S  4 - 2  Kilmaine P.S
