Sixth form student selected for the NI U18 Soccer team

A sixth form student from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, has been selected for the Northern Ireland Under 18 schoolboys’ soccer team.

Promising footballer and well-known local talent Sam Boylan (Year 13) was delighted to have been selected to play at international level.  This is Sam’s second successive year on the Northern Ireland squad; last year, at only 16, he was among the youngest on the Under 18 squad.

Sam represents Loreto College on school teams, and is well known in local sporting circles; having come through the ranks of Coleraine Colts and Coleraine Academy, he plays increasingly regularly for Coleraine FC’s senior team.

Along with Loreto College PE teachers Mr Paul Byrne and Mrs Maureen McCullough, Sam was congratulated on this accolade by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, on behalf of all the staff and students of the College.  Mr Lenehan commented that this talented sportsman was one to watch in the years ahead.
