When METNS was invited to a local 5-a-side soccer blitz for boys, we were naturally delighted to participate. As one of the few schools that have been awarded the Active School Flag we are always keen to be involved in different sporting events. The soccer blitz featured teams from Dungourney NS, Aghada NS and St. John the Baptist NS; who had kindly organised the tournament. The boys played a total of 5 games and thoroughly enjoyed being part of the blitz, learning from each game gaining valuable experience for future events. Our enjoyment was enhanced further with the news that Midleton FC generously offered to cover the cost of using their facilities for the day. We’re already gearing up for the next event which will feature both a boys and girls 5-a-side soccer team.
