On Thursday our school’s Under 13 football team lost by the narrowest of margins in the final of the Coleraine & District Schools’ McGarry Cup to near neighbours St Marys.
After an evenly contested first half the only goal of the game came just four minutes after the restart. And try as they might to find an equaliser, it was not to be and St Marys held on to their slender lead.
Although disappointed to lose, the team deserves credit for having gone all the way to the final without tasting defeat.
Alas this was a bridge too far. Roll on next season!
