Congratulations to the sixteen boys who represented Holywood PS at the annual Ashfield tournament. By having two teams participating in the Ashfield Tournament, this enabled a number of the P7 and many of our P6 pupils to have the opportunity to represent the school for the first time.`
The B Team equipped themselves very well against tough opposition but despite their best efforts and a great goal by Kyle they were unable to secure a place in the knockout stages.
The A Team kicked off the tournament positively with their first competitive win of the season. Throughout the competition the boys played some great football but unfortunately did not manage to convert their chances and suffered two 1-0 losses after having the majority of the possession. The A team finished the group stage with 4 points and narrowly missed out on progressing to the knockout stages by 1 point. Despite the miserable weather the boys had a great morning of competitive football. Special thanks to David Kennedy for his joint managerial role and for all the parent helpers who provided transport and even stayed to support HPS! :)
P7: Ruan (C), Benjamin, Joshua P, Oliver, Ben, Luke, Jamie, Harrison and George.
P6: Cameron, Thomas W, Zak, Matthew, Joshua, Oscar and Kyle.
