UEFA Grass Roots Soccer

Our pupils return to Herbertstown with silverware for a second time in a week!


Two teams travelled to Corbally today to take part in the UEFA Grass Roots soccer 5 a side competition. Our girls team performed admirably, picking up a win,a draw and a loss in their three games.


The boys qualified out of a tough group which included Roxborough N.S., St. Nicholas and Christ the King,  Caherdavin. This set up a semi-final meeting with Milford NS and with confidence building among the group they advanced to the final.


In the final Herbertstown faced a formidable Bilbao NS side. In a tense affair the scores were tied on a number of occasions including at half time where the game was finely poised at 2-2. With Ross pulling off some vital saves and captain Patrick Bermingham leading by example our team produced a memorable victory with a goal in the dying moments to win 4 -3.


Huge congratulations to the team who displayed tremendous team work throughout. Well done to Mike Bermingham who gave up his time to guide the team through the day.


Team: Ross, Seán, Adam, Aaron, Patrick, Euan, Ryan
