Inspiring Believing Achieving 

Football 

Mr Ritchie takes football every Monday afternoon from 3.00 - 4.00pm during Term 1 and term 2. Boys and girls from Primary 5-7 take part in passing, dribbling, shooting and tackling exercises and always finish with some matches. 
 
The team enters the Mid Ulster league for small, medium and large schools every year and also participate in other competitions such as the Jones Shield indoor tournament, Christian Aid five-a-side tournament and many others. 
 
Last year (2016-17) we had a fantastic year of success with the boys and girls teams winning multiple tournaments and playing an exciting brand of passing football. You can read a detailed report on our success on the Parents Page, Mullavilly Success page of the website. 

Boys Finish 2nd in National Indoor Finals 

Today (19/4/18) the boys took part in the National Indoor finals ran by the IFA having comfortably won the Mid Ulster qualifying section and the Jones Shield trophy. There were schools from all over the country taking part, split into two groups of five. The boys played superbly well winning two and drawing two in their group and qualifying for the semi finals. They then managed to get through a tight semi final and qualified for the final, now within touching distance of being National champions. A very close final finished 1-1 and so we went to penalties. Unfortunately we lost out in sudden death penalties after having to controversially retake our last penalty and missing on the second attempt having scored first time round. The boys have done Mullavilly proud with their performance and have acheieved something very special. Second in the whole of Northern Ireland sounds pretty good!!

Boy's win Brownlow Cup 

The boys football team finished the season in fantastic style by winning the prestigious Brownlow Cup. They were drawn in what became known as the 'group of death' with King's Park, Tandragee and Edenderry. They made a sluggish start and hadn't quite woken up yet losing out to Kings Park 3-0. After that wake up call from that point onwards they played superb football. After qualifying from the group they defeated Armstrong in the last 16, Edenderry in the Quarter Finals, Millington in the Semi Finals and finally Hardy on penalties in the final. They played lovely passing football throughout and scored some excellent goals. Well done boys!
