01/05/13 - Football Minnows Win League Title
The Under 15 Football Team have been crowned the Mid-Ulster Schools' Football Association (MUSFA) Under 15 League Champions for the first time ever in history.
The title was secured following a 3-0 victory over Drumcree College on Tuesday 30 April. Early goals from Matthew Leyburn and Daryl Johnston helped to settle any nerves for Mr Black's team before Daryl added another goal in the closing stages of the match.
This success really is a massive achievement for the traditional footballing minnows of Newtownhamilton High. On route to league success, the team secured notable victories over much larger schools such as Craigavon Senior High, Lismore Comprehensive and Markethill High.
What a fantastic achievement and something that will live long in the memories of the winning squad of:
Jason Clarke, Matthew Giffin, Jeffrey Martin, Matthew Harrison, Gary Knight, Andrew Knight, William Honeyman, Neil Morton, Daryl Johnston, Matthew Leyburn, Nathan Dodds, Matthew Gibson, Aaron Dickson & Matthew Rowland.
