Champions League 2017

Report from Mrs McNeish

OLHS annual Champions league competition took place at Firpark Astro on Friday 19th May. 8 teams, comprising of pupils from S1-S3 plus a staff member contested the trophy.

As usual, the standard of play was fantastic and all games were played in good spirit. Before the final, our staff took on a group of S3 boys for a game, a brilliant watch with the pupils winning 1 nil.

The overall winners, Juventus, were presented with the trophy by Mrs Sinclair. The squad consisted of Gabriel Markula, Jay Fulton, Ryan Bourke, Liam McQuaid, Patrick Pender, Robbie Payne, Ryan Murphy, Liam Duffy, Josh Barr, Liam Cogan and Mr Macmaster. Well done to all involved, a great day!

Congratulations to the Bayern Munich Team who defeated some of the strongest teams in Europe (that’s the Motherwell bit of Europe to be specific) to lift the OLHS Champions League Cup 2016.

Report from Mrs McNeish

The annual madness and skillsfest that is the OLHS Champions League took place at Firpark last week. 8 teams, consisting of S1-3 boys and a member of staff, contested the trophy. Each teacher had to start the game, but thankfully for some, they did not have to finish!

Despite the threats all week of the suffering to be inflicted on the staff during the competition, all went smoothly. Fair play was guaranteed by the Burkes, Kieran and Aidan, who returned to referee with help from Connor Nisbet, Sean Cassidy and Chrissy Reid.

The games were highly competitive with some fantastic skill on show- Mr Kerr was renamed Neur after his heroics in goals. Mr Smith, Mr Weir, Mr McHugh, Mr McGurk, Mr McRoberts, Mr Macmaster and Mr McQuillan loved the attention and tried like bears…even though some of their best football days are behind them!

The pupils were, as usual, a real credit to the school and all had a great day. Spectators added to the spice. The trophy was presented by Mrs Sinclair to the winning team of Bayern Munich, consisting of Mr McHugh (and we will always be reminded of his triumph!!) Michael Docherty, Henry Kyanda, David Nugent, James Low, Connor Lynch (C), Liam Knox, Nicky McNally, Stephen Black, Ben Lafferty and Aedan Dunne. Well done to all.

Football latest

The Under 14s won their last league game against Bellshill Academy 8-0, and also won their Scottish plate quarter final against Preston Lodge in Edinburgh, 5-1. This means that both our Under 14s and Under 13s through to the semi-final stages of their National tournaments, which is a tremendous achievement.

A big thank you to Mrs McNeish who has gone out in all weathers with our teams.

Staff and senior pupils are also planning the annual Champions League at Firpark, in which a number of teams play against each other, taking the names of big European teams for the honour of our Champions League Cup.
