Glengormley High Pupils contribute to cup glory!

Glentoran Womens side won the Women’s Challenge Cup in a 2-1 with a strong Glengormley High contingent bringing the cup home for the Glens. GHS pupil Aimee-Lee Peachey had a starring role and past pupil Danielle Maxwell also featured to bring the victory. We had former GHS teacher Miss Suzie Baxter as part of the squad and Coach Gail Redmond is a past pupil also so there is a strong GHS presence in the team. Check out the match report and well done to all involved!
