Congratulations to Kelvin, Adhamh and Aoibheann, members of the Sion Swifts "2006's" who won the 3rd place trophy at a worldwide football competition held in Barcelona last weekend. They were unlucky to be defeated 1-0 in the semi-final by a Belgian team in a game where they felt very few refereeing decisions went their way! Well done to Aoibheann and the boys.
