St. Aidan’s High School, Derrylin will have a chance to win their third Ulster final of 2024 on Wednesday as their U14 girls side face St. Aidan’s, Cootehill.

Throw-in is at 11.30am in Roslea on Wednesday just two weeks on from the U15.5 boys team defeating Largy College in Brewster Park to claim the McEvoy Cup.

St. Aidan’s booked their place with a win over St. Dominic's with a 2-14 to 1-08 scoreline at the end of April.

Fermanagh Ladies full-back Molly McGloin will lead out the Derrylin school pupils along with the help of Ciara Brogan of Trillick.

“Very exciting for the girls, I suppose there’s a good wee buzz with them and throughout the school as well,” McGloin said looking ahead to the game.

“Obviously coming back off both boys' teams winning, there’s a nice buzz for them as well, so, it would be nice for the girls to win something and bring back a bit of silverware to the school also.”

Speaking on the semi-final win over St. Dominic's, she added: “I was very pleased. Thrilled. They stuck it out to the end and deserved the win, I was very happy for them.

"They have been out training since January now, so, they have been at it a good few months, they’re well-conditioned and have worked very hard.”

St. Aidan’s landed their first Ulster title in January in the form of the McCormack Cup and it seems the school hare beginning to develop somewhat of a winning culture under principal Pat McTeggart.

“I suppose it brings a bit of belief back into the school as well. Tthe boys hadn’t won in so long, so just seeing the boys gives the girls something to work towards, but yeah, it would be nice for the girls to win something to and it would raise the profile of football for girls in the school as well as the boys,” McGloin continued.

“The girls are mostly second year and third year, there’s three first years but talking to the first years in the school, they can’t wait to get on the team next year. 

"So it definitely will inspire more girls to get involved and give it a go.”
