Biggest Tournament yet is a Huge Success

Our Annual Youth Tournament continues to grow and grow each year. This year we had more teams than ever compete across two age groups u9 & u12. With many obstacles in our way from having to cancel the original date due to bad weather to changing the venue due to it being unavailable on the new rearranged date, we were forgiven to think that someone or something didn’t want us to hold the event this year. So against the odds and a last minute change to the venue yet again, we hosted a very successful tournament. Thanks to Drumcree College we were able to host the event due to bad weather the previous day leaving our other venue unplayable!

Counties Armagh, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Antrim, Down, Louth and Kildare were all represented at this years event. Irish league representation came from Ballinmallard, Loughgall, Portadown, Glenavon, Glentoran, Armagh City and Ballymena Utd.

We would like to thank all the people who helped make this day possible including Drumcree College, Playing for the Future Trust, Playing for the Future volunteers, Scouts Den, Kit Ireland, HSS Hire and of course all the teams who take part in a wonderful event.

Our tournament is all about development and providing players with opportunities to improve in a small sided environment. U9 winners on the day were Glentoran (Cup), Bush Celtic (Shield), Warrenpoint Town (Plate) and Ballynahinch Youth (Rose Bowl. U12 winners were Glenavon Select (Cup), Sion Colts (Shield), Glenavon (Plate), Warrenpoint Town (Rose Bowl).
