Our boys who took part in the North of Scotland Soccer 7s finals in Dundee have arrived home safely. They were all praised throughout their trip They qualified for this prestigious competition by winning the local heats in Stornoway against Lewis and Harris schools earlier in the year.
In the finals they played against nine other teams from Inverness, Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee and Skye. The standard in the competition was very high and the games were tough but the boys tried their best throughout. They won two of their games and drew another two but lost five games by a small margin. Their wins included a 2-0 victory over nearest rivals Portree.
The team, James Maclennan, Euan Anderson, Lee Maclean, Hector Macdonald, Steven Mutch, David Anderson, Ross Maciver, Calum Maclennan and Andrew Macdonald, were described as being a credit to the school and the community for their exemplary behaviour, positive attitude and commitment throughout their trip and the eight games they played.
We would like to thank Mr Dano Macdonald, Mrs Lena Maclennan and Mrs Chrisell Macleod for escorting the team. We’d like to also thank Dano for training and preparing the team for the competition in recent weeks. Thanks as well to the parents of the boys who supported us with fundraising and organising the trip. Well Done boys!
