Milk Cup Football Selection

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Callum Byers, Form Four, who has been selected to represent the County Down Under 17 football team at the upcoming Milk Cup 2013. 

Callum’s selection for this prestigious competition comes following a vigorous process during which he was required to attend a series of trials, held in Bangor and Crossgar, which saw an initial squad of 33 players reduced to 24 and then a final 18. 

Callum, who has played for Glenavon F.C. at reserve and Under 19 level throughout the season, will now join the County Down team for the competition, which runs from 28th July – 3rd August.  The team are scheduled to play three matches within the initial group stages of the tournament, against Vendée from France, Dublin’s Cherry Orchard and Cruz Azul from Mexico, from which the top two teams will qualify for the knock-out stages.

Well done once again to Callum on his superb success.
