Two of the Club’s brightest young prospects are off this summer to compete in the prestigious Foyle Cup in Derry having been selected to represent the NECSL in this year’s tournament. Colm Smith and Jamie Lee (pictured) line out with the Club’s U15s under the management of Shay Lee and Brendan Smith and their selection is just reward for the many sterling performances turned out by both boys for the Club over the last couple of years.
The Foyle Cup is a premier event in the International Schoolboy football calendar and the NECSL will be up against professional and amateur teams from all over Ireland, the United Kingdom and Europe. The tournament is run over a week in early July and provides a feast of top class games for spectators who travel from far and near to see them. Manchester United, Celtic, Nottingham Forest & Everton are amongst the teams that take part each year in addition to selections representing our own National League and many regional Schoolboy Leagues also.
Congratulations to both boys on their selection – well done!
