21/01/2010 INTERNATIONAL CALL-UP FOR LORETO COLLEGE FOOTBALLERS

Two students from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, have been selected for the Northern Ireland Under 18 schoolboys’ soccer team.

Promising footballers Stephen Dooley (Year 14) and Sam Boylan (Year12) were delighted to have been selected to play at international level.  For Stephen, this is his second successive year on the Northern Ireland squad, with highlights of his first year including being a member of the team which lifted the Elite title at the Northern Ireland Milk Cup last summer.  Sam has been selected for the first time, and at 16 is among the youngest on the Under 18 squad.

Both Stephen and Sam represent Loreto College on school teams, and the two are well known in local sporting circles.  Stephen plays regularly and with distinction for Coleraine FC, while Sam plays for Coleraine Colts and Coleraine Academy.

Stephen and Sam, along with Loreto College PE teachers Mr Paul Byrne and Mrs Maureen McCullough, were congratulated on this accolade by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, who commented that the talented duo were ones to watch in the years ahead.
