THE Enniscorthy schools soccer coaching season came to an end with a five-a-side blitz at the Ajax Athletic grounds in Daphne View.

The winners were presented with their cups and medals by the county youths manager Mick Larkin. The visitors were looked after by Ajax's Ruairi Fortune and Mag Larkin.

The occasion was used to drum up €400 for Down Syndrome Ireland. The weather was fine and warm for the 170 players who took part. Participating schools were Gaelscoil Inis Córthaidh, Donard, Marshalstown, Caim, Courtnacuddy and St. Mary's. The scheme is supported by Wexford Local Development, Túas and Wexford Sports Active.

Boys A final – Marshalstown 2, St. Mary's 1; boys B – Donard 1, Caim 0; girls A, Gaelscoil 2, Caim 1; girls B – Donard 2, St. Mary's 1.
