Belfast Schools Cup Round 1

 

Nettlefield 2 St Michaels 5

 

Year 7 boys started the season in style with a very impressive 5-2 away win against Nettlefield P.S in the Belfast schools cup. The attendance of 60+ Nettlefield supporters did not distract the boys from the job at hand and we look forward to finding out our next opponents in the round 2 draw on Monday 22nd October.

 

Nettlefield made a quick start and went one nil up with a sweetly struck 25 yard curling shot into the top corner. From the kick off and following words of encouragement by Captain Marcus the boys responded with a slick move down the left flank which resulted in Conrad firing a first time shot into the top right corner. A similar move occurred 2 minutes later and St Michaels went 2-1 up.

 

From this point, the boys did not look back and a Fitzsimons brace made the score 4-1 at half-time. Along with Marcus (centre midfield) & Conrad (centre forward), a strong showing by Pau in the centre of defence makes for a very solid spine in this year's under 11 school team. A special mention also to Theo who chased down every ball and battled hard in the tackle to ensure the boys came out on top.

 

The second half was a calmer affair thanks to Tiernan finishing well at the start of the half. A goal for Nettlefield on the final whistle served as consolation to our hosts. St Michaels march on to round 2 of the Edco Belfast Schools cup and Mr Hunter has selection issues on his hands with every one of the 12 man squad putting in a shift their school and their parents should be proud of. Well done boys!!
