 Foyle Cup Tournament in Derry

Belvedere's Under 12's won 3 - 0 over Institute F.C. from Belfast in their opening match on Tuesday 6th July.

On Wednesday they went down 4 - 1 to a very strong Scottish Premier League Aberdeen F.C academy side, while their final group tie was against Down and Conor Youth League on Thursday morning which they won 2 - 0 to qualify for the quarter finals of the cup.

Unfortunately, on Thursday evening, Belvedere lost 5 - 4 on a penalty shoot out to a South Belfast Youth League selection, having drawn 2 - 2 at full time, in a game they should have won.

On Friday morning, Belvedere bounced back with a great 1 - 0 win over Dublin rivals Saint Kevin's Boys to reach the 5th and 6th place play off. But, after a long week of football, tiredness finally caught up with them and they were unlucky to loose 1 - 0 to Arklow Town on Saturday morning.

All in all, this was a great week of football for Belvedere Under 12's, with the opportunity to play some quality teams in the Foyle Cup, in preparation for the new football season which starts at the end of August.
