Scholars supreme against American side


Well done to a selection of our SEFA Scholars who played against the Regal Sporting Group from America on Friday night.

The game, which took place at Swadelands, ended in a 5-0 victory for the Scholars with the goals coming from Lee Dehara (3), Dan Canning and Lewis Stevens.


The Regal Sporting side, on a week-long tour in England, was made up of the most exciting talent from New York and the surrounding areas and included four USA Under 17 internationals.


“It was great to see the boys put in such an accomplished performance in front of the watching American staff and Football League scouts” said Tony Browne.


“The lads played some great stuff, moving the ball around superbly and were clinical in front of goal.


“Regal had some excellent players but lacked a little bit of edge in the final third which is sometimes the downfall of teams who have only just been put together.


“Hopefully this is just the start of a great partnership with Regal – thanks to them for coming and hopefully they enjoyed their time with us.”
