|Scoil Ursula N.S.||
Congratulations to our Girls 5-a-Side Soccer Team who finished runners-up in this year’s competition in the Regional Sports Complex. Led by inspirational captain, Deborah Farrell, they topped their group with a draw against Mercy Primary and a big win over Grange NS. This put them into the final against St. John’s NS, Ballisodare. Despite the girls' best efforts, they went down 3-1 in a very tight decider and the winners will now go on to represent Sligo in the Connacht Finals. Our girls were presented with their medals by members of the Sligo Rovers Football Team led by midfielder and FAIS Co-ordinator, John Russell.
The girls from 4th & 5th Classes participated in a very enjoyable soccer event in the Showgrounds on recently. The fun day involved small sided games; fun shooting and target games; face painting; and music, with the emphasis on encouraging girls to play soccer with their local clubs. Sligo Rovers players put the girls through their paces and they all got a FIFA T-Shirt to bring away as a memento of the occasion.
We were delighted to be joined by players and back-room staff from Sligo Rovers today. Our shouting must have been heard all over town as the boys and girls cheered the Airtricity League Champions. Our thanks to the players and staff for visiting our school again and for bringing their amazing trophy and success story back to the many fans in Scoil Ursula.
Scoil Ursula will welcome newly crowned Airtricity League Champions Sligo Rovers to the school on Tuesday next at 12:30pm.
