It was a great privilege for Kingsisland PS to be invited to the inaugural Eamonn Coleman Memorial 7 a-side football tournament today in Ballymaguigan, Co Derry.

It was the first time Kingsisland have ever had the opportunity to compete against other schools from Antrim, Derry and Tyrone all situated along the shores of Lough Neagh.
After 3 very competitive group games the Kingsisland boys topped their group following wins against New Row PS Castledawson, Annahorish PS Toomebridge and St Oliver Plunkett’s PS Toome.
As group winners that meant Kingsisland progressed to the A-Competition semi-final where we defeated St Mary’s PS Bellaghy.
In the A-Competition final the boys came up against the host school St Trea's Primary School Ballymaguigan. Kingsisland raced in to an early lead, kicking some lovely points and a goal meaning they took a 5 point lead in at half time. St Trea’s threw everything at Kingsisland in the second half and despite some ferocious defending from the Kingsisland lads, Ballymaguigan managed to score a goal in the last minute followed by a winning point with the last kick of the game. A hard but very valuable lesson for the boys but they will soon pick themselves up as there are plenty more competitions to come in May & June.
Eamonn Coleman’s son, Gary, was on hand to present the medals.
Well done boys on a great day’s football. You all did Kingsisland proud today.
Derry Coach, Gavin Devlin, was also in attendance bringing the Allianz National Division 1 League Cup and Sigerson Cup along to show the children.
Many thanks to St Trea’s PS for a wonderful day’s football and fantastic hospitality.
