Spar FAI Primary School 5’s (Boys) 2020

The boys from 5th and 6th class took part in SPAR FAI soccer blitz in Knockgriffin on Tuesday 3rd of March. There were two teams and they each played several matches throughout the day. The boys gave it their all and most importantly, they had a blast playing soccer for the day! Many thanks to Fergal Cunningham and Margaret Daly who have spent time teaching soccer skills to the 5th and 6th class. Also, thanks to the parents who drove the boys in and cheered them on from the sideline. It was a wonderful day for all and we look forward to the girls participating next week.
