LETTERKENNY’S AURA LEISURE CENTRE will play host to the Ulster Post Primary Schools Boys & Girls First Year Futsal Finals on Wednesday, November 13.
A total of 8 teams will compete from Monaghan, Cavan, Inishowen and Donegal as 96 players will provide a masterclass in futsal.
The girls division should produce some action packed drama with St. Louis Secondary School, Monaghan Town, Royal School, Cavan Town, Loreto Secondary School, Letterkenny and Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana all in the mix. Defending Ulster and National Cup Champions Carndonagh were knocked out in the Inishowen qualifiers so it’s all to play for next month.
Local outfit Loreto Letterkenny were involved last season and may hold the favourities tag entering the contest. However you can’t see past Buncrana who caused the upset in Inishowen with dark horses St. Louis and the Royal looking to be the surprise package this season.
The boys section will be equally as challenging to come through as Patrician High School, Carrickmacross, Royal School, Cavan, St. Eunan’s College, Letterkenny and last year’s title contenders Scoil Mhuire SS, Buncrana all doing battle.
St. Columba’s College, Stranorlar were last year’s winners and with St. Eunan’s knocking them out in the qualifiers, it will be an interesting test for the quartet.
Or could Royal College, Cavan and Scoil Mhuire SS, Buncrana complete an historic double with both their boys and girls involved.
For further information on the event please contact the competition co-ordinator Thomas Heffernan on 083 849 7713.
The Ulster winners will progress to the National Finals which take place in Waterford IT Sports Arena on December 5.
We wish all participating teams the very best of luck.
