IFA Gold Cup

Translink support top NI schools football talent with Irish FA Translink Schools’ Gold Cup
 
The Translink Schools’ Gold Cup involves eight post-primary schools who have been awarded the Gold Schools Quality Mark accreditation by the Irish FA Foundation.
 
The Schools Quality Mark accreditation supports schools to put structures in place to develop football. This is the first competition involving schools playing each other across three age groups (U13, U15, U17).
 
Schools will be ranked by their performances over all age groups with one school winning the Translink Gold Cup and claiming ‘Top Football Performance School’ status in Northern Ireland.
 
The 8 schools involved during 2018/19 are:
Ashfield Boys, Belfast
Bangor Academy
Belfast Boys Model
Holy Cross College, Strabane
Laurelhill Community College, Lisburn
Our Lady & St Patricks College, Knock
St Columb’s College, Derry~Londonderry
St Malachy’s College, Belfast
 
This exciting competition also promotes exercise and healthier lifestyles – something Translink believes in strongly as an ‘active travel’ provider. And, as the biggest provider of school transport in Northern Ireland, we’re proud to be supporting home-grown talent and giving pupils the opportunity for some friendly competition, teamwork and a platform to showcase their football skills.
