Surely six words that past generations would never have expected to read about their alma mater, but as Principal Elizabeth Huddleson says in a recent tweet (on Twitter, to the unitiated!): “Lots of things have changed at BGS. Many old boys of a certain age wouldn’t recognise the School now… this won’t be the last time we win a football competition!”
The little matter of actually winning the competition, the Belfast Secondary Schools Cup, will be resolved this Wednesday (25 April) at Seaview – home of Crusaders FC – with an 11am kick-off.
A 1-0 victory over Our Lady and St. Patrick’s of Knock earlier this month put the boys into the final for the first time in BGS history. Good luck to them in Wednesday’s big match – the achievements of past pupils Terry Neill and Keith Gillespie, both soccer stars who appear on the new Sporting Wall of Fame, will hopefully inspire them to victory.
No word on the opposition, if anyone can help in that regard.
