Year 12 pupil, Ian Maxwell, has been selected for the Northern Ireland Under 16 international football team that will play two games in Finland on Monday 14 September and Wednesday 16 September.
On its return home the team will play two further internationals against Poland on Tuesday 22 September at (Queens University Belfast) and on Thursday 24 September (at Comber).
Then, during the first week of November, a revamped Victory Shield will be held at Dragon Park, Newport with matches against the Republic of Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Regrettably England has withdrawn from this tournament.
Ian’s selection comes as no surprise to those who have monitored his development over the past couple of years. Indeed, last season, he established himself as a key member of the Under 15 development team.
This latest accolade is not only an honour for Ian and his family but also for our school. Staff and pupils at Limavady High School therefore wish him every success for what will be a very busy couple of months.
