FAI Primary Schools Futsal programme

On Wednesday this week two teams of boys and girls from 3rd and 4th represented St Francis NS in the FAI Primary Schools Futsal programme in DKIT Sports facility. There were 15 teams in the boys league and 10 teams in the girls. The teams played four games each. The girls played against St Mary’s NS, St Joseph’s NS, Dulargy NS and Bay Estate NS. They won two games and lost two games. The boys played against Realt na Mara NS, St Joseph’s NS, Dulargy NS and Monastry Boys school resulting in two wins, one draw and one defeat.

Massive congratulations to all of the boys and girls who participated!

It was a fantastic display of passion for the sport, confidence on the pitch, ball skills, good sportsmanship and respect. There was a great sense of team spirit. Overall it was a very positive and pleasurable experience. We were blown away by the talent the children demonstrated today and we hope to work with the middle classes in this area throughout the year.

Finally, a huge thank you to parent, Paul Scanlon for his assistance and mentoring and thanks Ken Norton and Tomek Dobros for support the teams on the day. All of your expertise made a huge difference to the smooth operation of the day.
