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.
