Graham Cup Rugby Festival

On Wednesday 12th September Grosvenor Grammar School welcomed Aaron McKinney from AM Property Management Limited, sponsors of its recently staged ‘Graham Cup’ Rugby Festival.

The event, held on Saturday 1st September, saw Grosvenor welcome competing teams from four other schools, namely: Banbridge Academy, Belfast Royal Academy, Rainey Endowed and Wesley College.

Whilst the hosts performed encouragingly on the day, securing a victory over Banbridge Academy by 7 points to 3, a 0-0 draw with Rainey Endowed and suffering narrow losses to both B.R.A. (10-7) and Wesley College (7-0), it was the latter side, visiting from Dublin, who ran out eventual winners. 

The event, named after Grosvenor’s former Head of Sports Studies Mr Ian Graham, was being staged within Grosvenor for the third consecutive year. 

Many thanks to AMPM, whose sponsorship helped to make the event possible and provided the necessary finance for trophies and hospitality to be provided on the day.

We look forward to reading about further successful Graham Cups within Grosvenor over the years to come.
