Congratulations to two of our pupils who have been selected for a Northern Ireland underage development squad. Richard Purcell from Year 10 and Ian Maxwell from Year 11 will travel to Manchester on 22 and 23 January as part of the Elite Performance Development Squad. They will play matches against Manchester City and Everton.
Richard, who plays in the goalkeeper position, has attended Coleraine F.C. Academy for the past five years. His inspiration is the Manchester United goalie, David de Gea, so being chosen to play in the city is a dream come true. Ian, a centre-back, is a member of the Maiden City Soccer Academy and said he was extremely excited to take part in this amazing opportunity.
We wish both boys the best of luck with this and all of their future footballing endeavours.
