The 'Treble'-winning U10 team of 1998 & Champions of Northern Ireland (me: 6th back-row)It was with great sadness recently to learn that my first junior football club Holywood Boys were taken over by the ex-Formula One driver Eddie Irvine and exported to Bangor. The new name...
... "Eddie Irvine Sports Football Club".
However, it was with those youthful years at Holywood Boys with whom I enjoyed the most success. In 1998 at U10 level we quite simply were 'the Cream of Northern Ireland' at our age group. A Dundonald Junior League 'Double' success was followed up by victory in what was known then as 'The Champions of Champions' (the Champions' League - except better).
Rest In Peace HBFC (1991-2008).
