Holy Cross Primary School in North Belfast has been crowned champions of the Belfast Primary Schools’ Football Association grassroots five-a-side tournament 2020 after a nail-biting final match against St John the Baptist Primary School.

The thrilling showdown took place at Shankill Leisure Centre as part of a three week-long league sponsored by Northern Ireland’s largest independent telecommunications company, Rainbow Communications.

More than 250 schoolchildren – and 36 teams – took part in the battle to get to the final two, where Holy Cross beat St John the Baptist by one nil (1-0).

Other primary schools which made it to the final seven included Christ the Redeemer, St. Clare’s, St Oliver Plunkett, Sacred Heart and Seaview.
