Hundreds of players, coaches, parents and friends attended Coleraine Showgrounds last Saturday when the Harry Gregg Foundation hosted the North West & Coleraine District Youth League awards ceremony.

This was an amazing morning for local football and it was great to see so many young people happy and being recognised for their efforts.

It’s been a long season adversely affected by wet, cold and windy weather but the level of participation and support never
wavered.

The League had a total of 83 teams participating this season at Ballysally Mini Soccer Centre from 16 clubs and to run this effectively Stevie Crowe and his team of dedicated volunteers, Andy Alcorn, John Honeyford, Dee Cochrane, Sam Scott and ably assisted by coaches and referees, have made it an outstanding success.

Also a special mention to all the older aged teams who compete at eleven a-side - the League hope you enjoyed your football and thanks to all the clubs in the district for their help and support.

Roll on next season!
