Hockey girls get an invite to Lurgan College pitch opening celebrations
A number of lucky hockey players from our school were chosen to take part in the opening celebrations of Lurgan College’s hockey pitch and pavillion. Mr. Robinson welcomed the girls to the morning and explained that Maralin and all the other schools that were invited, were an important feeder school to Lurgan College and some day some of the girls would be lucky enough to play on the beautiful pitch. The girls were then taken for a training session run by pupils and ex pupils of Lurgan College, who have represented Ulster and Irish school’s hockey. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the session and learned a great deal. The second part of the morning was dedicated to a tournament where the 5 schools, who attended the celebartion, played against each other. Maralin girls chalked up a 3=0 win against Kings Park, a 2-0 win against Dickson, a 0-0 draw with Waringstowna and they finished the tournament with a 3-0 win against Carrick, This made Maralin the overall winners of the tournament on goal difference. The girls had a brilliant morning and were delighted to be part of such a special day.
