SPAR FAI Primary School 5s Finals Day in LEITRIM
All roads lead to the Bee Park, home of Manorhamilton Rangers FC next Wednesday, April 13th for the finale of the SPAR FAI Primary School 5s County qualifiers.
Damon Kearney (Leitrim County Council FAI Development Officer) and Alan Keane (FAI Development Officer) will have 55 teams from 17 schools participating in this Festival of football event this season which has been a fantastic increase on 2015. All participating schools will be guaranteed an action packed day of activity with games kicking off at 10.15am
The SPAR FAI Primary School 5s is the biggest and best competition in the 2015 Primary Schools Soccer Calendar. There are 5 divisions to suit all school sizes. While SPAR and FAI Schools encourage boys and girls to play on the same team, there is also a separate competition for girls’ schools. A number of teams can represent one school depending on the size of their student body, giving more children the chance to develop their skills in a safe, child centred and exciting environment.
Diffreen NS, Gaelscoile Liotroma, Scoile Mhuire and St patricks N.S. Drumshanbo NS are all back to defend their title across the different section in the boys and girls competitions but Gaelscoil Chluainín, Largy NS, St. Brigid's NS, Ballaghameehan NS, St. Joseph's NS, St.Mary's National School, Newtowngore NS, Saint Hugh's National School, Fatima NS, St.Joseph's NS Aughavas, Leitrim Village National Schoool, St Clare's PS, The Four Masters National School, Scoil Mhuire Naofa NS all will be completing their various sections to overcome the previous winners with the four section winners going forward to the Connacht Finals on Wednesday, April 27 in Milebush Park, Castlebar, Co. Mayo.
We wish all participating schools the very best of luck in the Leitrim Finals Day. Go out and enjoy the occasion.
