"The football on show on the day was of a high calibre and proves that the 7-a-side aspect is invaluable for developing quality players at this age. The football on show was competitive yet played with the best spirit and I’d like to thank the schools for taking part. I would also like to thank the UUJ and PSNI for their assistance for facilities and transport and the NBC for providing each player with a football and memento as part of their 50th Anniversary celebrations”.
