After a busy few weeks getting to know their new school and classmates, the First Year Boys Futsal team made a winning start to their debut season representing the school.

The team played two hard-fought matches in the annual FAI Futsal tournament on Monday, 8th October, and showed great teamwork, effort and skill in victory and defeat.
