Commiserations from Bangor Grammarians to the BGS soccer team after their 4-0 defeat at the hands (or feet) of North Belfast’s St. Malachy’s College in this morning’s (Wednesday 25 April) Under 18 Belfast Schools Cup final at Seaview. It was the Bangor team’s first major football final, whereas their opponents had previously enjoyed success in this competition.
There was a decades-long wait before the 1st XV lifted the Schools (Rugby) Cup for the first time (in 1969). We are sure the soccer team, having reached this level of achievement after a relatively short time, will bounce back very quickly!
