BackLaunch of the new IFA Schools' Gold Cup

Laurelhill Community College is an accredited IFA Gold Mark School along with eight other schools in the province: Ashfield, Boys Model, Bangor Academy, St Malachy’s, St Colm’s (Londonderry), Holy Cross (Strabane), Our Lady and St Patrick’s. As part of this award the school will play in the new Translink Schools Gold Cup.

This week Head of PE, Mr Watson, along with Year 9 players Cameron Mackin and Ben Robinson attended the opening ceremony for the competition at the National Stadium, Windsor Park. Present at this ceremony was Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neil and the Northern Ireland squad. Mr Watson and the players had the opportunity to watch the Northern Ireland team train.

This is another exciting tournament for our players to participate in as Mr Watson stated, “this is a fantastic opportunity for Laurelhill to be included in a competition as one of the eight top football schools in Northern Ireland.”

We look forward to sharing all the news and results from the tournament in the coming weeks.
