'Victory Shield' Football

Congratulations to Grosvenor footballer Callum Byers who has been selected to represent Northern Ireland at Under 16 level in the prestigious ‘Victory Shield’ competition. 

Centre Back Callum, Form 4, was selected for the final squad of 18 players following a residential training session in Antrim, and has already featured in matches against Finland, Austria and Turkey in preparation for the competition.

Perhaps the highlight of the tournament will come this Thursday evening (27th September), with Callum having been chosen as a member of the squad to face England in Dungannon. 

In addition to this Thursday’s curtain-raiser, the Victory Shield will also see Northern Ireland face opposition from Scotland, Wales, Belgium and Poland between now and Christmas.

Well done to Callum on his impressive achievements so far this season – all at Grosvenor wish him the best of luck for his entire Victory Shield campaign.
