Abbey Awarded Football All Star

Date Posted: 18th December 2018

Abbey Macrory cup play Paul Martin received a football all-star in Belfast on Monday 17th December 2018.

Players are selected over the course of two trial games, after being initially nominated by their own school to attend the trials.

The scheme rewards excellence in skill and in sportsmanship and a player who has been sent off in any game between September 1st and the dates of the trials is ineligible for selection.
