This years’ Centenary Shield has kicked off with fantastic results!
There’s a phenomenal atmosphere for the U18 squads to be playing in, with sell-out crowds and new host venues. Post match reports from English Schools FA and Northern Ireland Schools’ FA plus the buzz on social media prove just how much interest there is in the competition, and it doesn’t stop there! Official photographer Tony Smith of SMugmug Photography has captured the game’s best moments from the game at Eastleigh (@tonys_pics)
And now, in the middle of the U18 boys’ tournament it’s the girls’ turn! Back in February, English School girls U15’s (ESFA_u15_girls) travelled to Lisbon with inspiresport for their week long international training camp, and we’d like to wish them good luck in the Bob Docherty Cup taking place next month. The home nations will compete up in Glasgow, at the Toryglen Regional Football Centre, and we are looking forward to being in attendance at each of the games.
Following the Bob Docherty Cup, the Allen McKinstry Cup is being held in Belfast during May. We are sticking to our Welsh roots, and cheering for another Welsh win (Ysgol Plasmawr, Cardiff, were the 2014 winners!) and are hoping for match updates and reports to be available over on our twitter feed (@inspiresport).
inspiresport are proud to be official sponsors of all three SAFIB (Schools Association Football International Board) schools football competitions, and wish all taking part the best of luck.
