Holywood’s football season got underway this afternoon as the new league format kicked off at Eddie Irvine Sports Complex in Bangor.
The league consists of 16 teams competing from across the Ards and North Down area and matches take place once a month where each school plays a total of 3 games.
Holywood’s opponents for todays fixtures were Towerview P.S, Crawfordsburn P.S and Clandeboye P.S. Holywood had a lot of boys competing and representing the school for the first time and their enthusiasm showed from the first whistle. The boys worked hard as a team and put together some brilliant passages of play over their 3 games that led to some fantastic goals by Ben (3), Ruan. Zak and Luke. For all their hard work, Holywood unfortunately were edged in all 3 of their games but their attitude and application were excellent and they did themselves and their school proud.
A great day of football overall with plenty to build on for the future games to come!
SQUAD: Cameron, Benjamin, Joshua P, Matthew, Ruan, Luke, Oliver, Zak and Ben (C).
