Football Club


Mr T Brown and Mr I Somerville

Terms One 7 Two Tuesday     3.00 – 3.55 pm

The Primary 6 / 7 Football Club runs each Tuesday from late September until Easter time. The Football Club aims to develop skills and fitness whilst promoting positive discipline and team awareness. Each club member receives an opportunity to play a match against a neighbouring school and the chance to 'pull on the Waringstown jersey,' an opportunity which we believe is so special for each individual club member.

From the football club comes a dedicated squad of players, usually about fourteen. This team competes in all of the local competitions and national events.

The football team is no stranger to success and has won every honour possible, from the league title in Mid-Ulster, the Mullen Cup, to being crowned the overall national Champions of Northern Ireland in 2006.

P4 Forest School - Week 6

Today in Forest School Primary 4 had the opportunity to revise what they have learnt about symmetry. They worked in pairs to come up with symmetrical pictures. Once this was complete, the boys and girls worked in larger groups to create a huge symmetrical piece of art.

Mr Budde - Football Kit Presentation

Recently, our school was delighted to receive a sponsored football kit from one of our children's parents Mr S Budde. We invited Mr Budde into our assembly to say a heartfelt thanks for providing us with this beautiful new kit. The boys really love the new kit and it has already been worn in the first tournament of the year. This kit will be used for years to come and we are so thankful for the generosity shown by Mr Budde and his firm SB Consulting Ltd. Thank you so much!

Mid Ulster Schools - October Football Festival Success

Just before the mid term break our boys’ football team travelled over to Drumgor PS for the annual October Football Festival. The boys were placed in a tough group with Carrick, Mullavilly, Edenderry and Ballyoran.

The first game against Mullavilly was very close and we managed to score late into the game to secure a 1-1 draw. Next, we took to the field to play Carrick PS and we ran out 2-1 winners. A tough game against Edenderry was next with some excellent defensive play on display the game finished 0-0. The final group game against Ballyoran was crucial and the boys managed to win 4-0.

These results secured our boys top spot in the group were we would face Bocombra PS in the quarter final. After a tense match the boys scored a late winner in extra time to win 1-0 and reach the semi finals. Carrick PS waited in the semi final and the result finished the same as the group stages with the boys working so hard and playing great football to win 2-1. The final was again a very hard fought match against Hart Memorial PS. There was very little separating both sides, but all of the boys managed to perform to their very best and won the final match 2-1 to win the Mid Ulster Schools -October Football Festival. All of the boys played their part in this success and represented our school so well. Very well done boys!


Girls' Football Success - Kennedy Cup returns home!

The girls' football team from Waringstown certainly have smiles all around this morning after bringing home the Kennedy Cup! On Monday 18th June 15 teams from all over Northern Ireland took part in the annual Kennedy Cup. Waringstown were hoping to make it 4 wins out of 5 but with so many team it was a difficult "ask" for our girls.

Nonetheless, they set to their task straight away and won a very competitive group including Hart, Friends (Lisburn), Poyntzpass and Carrick. The girls progressed to the quarter finals where a resolute Orchard Primary School held out until Golden Goal finally separated the teams.

The semi-final against Abercorn Primary School was a fiercely contested match but a goal early on settled the nerves and Waringstown had made the final once again.

Kings Park Primary School, who had a very strong team were awaiting the girls in the final, but a well worked move and shot, which was handled on the line gave Waringstown a penalty which was clinically dispatched by our captain. This goal proved vital and the Kennedy Cup returned home to our trophy cabinet where it will remain for a year.

Congratulations to all of our girls who played some wonderful football along the way. Mr Brown, Mr Mitchell and Mr Gault were so very proud of this squad of ten players, while Mr McCambley looked on from the side lines willing the girls to success!

Well done girls!

P6/7 Girls' Football Commences

Over the last few weeks, P6/7 girls have turned out in excellent numbers for football practice. We have had well over 30 girls at each session. The girls are learning about the basics of football, developing new skills and having lots of fun. It is great to see so many girls taking part each week. Keep it going! Well done girls!

Primary 7 Football Tournament v Fairhill Primary School

On Thursday 7th March EVERY child who attends P7 football practice got a chance to represent the school.

Each P7 child "pulled on the jersey" and took part in a tournament with our P7 friends from Dromara (Fairhill Primary).

Each Boy had five games in total, lasting 10 minutes each.

The boys seemed to really enjoy the day which ended with a wee snack of crisps, kindly sponsored by Mr Brown.

Well done to all concerned
