Junior Choir roar at Windsor

By · September 20, 2012 · Filed in Trips Out
Mid Ulster Juniors had another great night out on Wednesday night at Windsor Park.  Two mini bussess and a couple of cars full of Mid Ulsters finest made their way through diversions, road blocks and every other obstacle possible to cheer on Simone and her N.Ireland team mates in the final European group match for the N. Ireland ladies.  To add to the excitement the U12s had been asked to play at half time against Crusaders.  With Vuvuzelas in hand the Mid Ulster crew roared on the N.Ireland girls and with the match poised at 0-0 it was time for the Mini Hambags to take to the pitch.  Megan Ferson, Rachel Rodgers, Kirsten Henry, Eimear McGarrity, Annie McKenna, Lilie Crooks, Megan Holdworth, Jessica Magee, Sophie Magee, Olivia Donnelly,and Rebecca Cullen took to the pitch with Ellie Cullen looking after things on the sideline.  10 minutes of competitive football followed with skills on show to rival the senior match.  Crusaders took an early lead but as Mid Ulster settled into their game they produced a lovely passage of play which was neatly finished off by the prolific Jessica Magee.  As the final whistle sounded a draw was a fair result and the girls lapped up the applause before they took over the ladies toilets for the next 15minutes and then ate the chip van out of food. Just to add to the evening Mid Ulsters successful trio of Emma McFarland, Samantha Kelly and Jacqueline Burns also took to the pitch for a lap of honour with their U17 colleagues.  Thankfully for all the rain that had poured down in the first half held off and Emmas tan was safe.

  After the break and the chips the Mid Ulster Juniors decided to offer some encouragement to the senior team with a few 100 verses of "we 're not Brazil we're N. Ireland".  With Kirsten Henry as main trumpet player the support was fantastic and it was just a shame that it seemed to egg on the Belgium team as they tried to spoil the night out by scoring twice and winning the game.  We didnt care!  We were proud of the girls in green who had done their best and our Sunnie who had another great performance.  As the busses headed back to Cookstown Ma knew she was going to need her ear plugs as the singing continued all the way home!
