- Friendly: De La Salle V Holding Group Tornadoes
Wednesday 11th May 2016, Lancaster Road, KO 6.15pm.
Playing their first ever match, as a team, the Holding Group Tornadoes took to the field to face their De La Salle counterparts. Unfortunately, for the Tornadoes, the De La Salle team proved to be too strong and the boys found themselves heavily in arrears as the game progressed. Undeterred though they battled on bravely and competed well all over the pitch with Jack McMinn and Logan McFeely both impressing in goal and Charlie Smethurst working very hard to find space on the pitch. In addition there was some notable endeavour from George Wadeson, Daire Cox, Dylan Courtney, Stewart Kay and Alfie Lacey. The highlight of the match though, for the Tornadoes, had to be Alfie's goal when he scored direct from a corner. It was great to see the boys' delight as the ball hit the back of the net and Alfie's face was a picture too. Overall, I think the boys enjoyed themselves and there was one or two promising signs of a team spirit developing. Well done all for a great effort! Man of the Match went to Alfie Lacey for his superb goal.
