Moyallon Primary School captured Mullen Cup glory recently in Lurgan thanks to a single-goal success against Waringstown.

The Mid-Ulster Schools’ Football Association showpiece tournament featured eight teams ranked as small, medium or large.

Moyallon - one of two medium schools in the competition - recorded group wins against Bleary and Millington, plus a 1-1 draw with Bocombra.

A 2-0 victory arrived in the semi-final at the expense of Edenderry before success against Waringstown to seal the prize.

“I am very proud of the boys, who have played some great football throughout the season,” said Moyallon principal John Priestley. “They fought hard throughout this tournament and were very deserving of lifting the trophy at the end of the day.

“Thanks should go to Stephen Guy from Millington for all his work throughout the season organising everything.

“They also won a Tandragee Christian Aid event.

“Our boys’ rugby team also enjoyed the most successful season in the school’s history.

“We finished the season with wins in every game and 68 tries scored.

“The boys won tournaments organised by the Banbridge and Dromore clubs, plus played at the home of Ulster Rugby.

“They have been a credit, especially for playing together so much as a team.”
