At Edwards, pupils are introduced to football in Year 3 and 4 through coaching from the IFA.  This provides pupils with the opportunity to develop an interest in football and to learn some of the basic skills.

Key Stage 2 pupils are invited to participate in football after school in the summer term which is always extremely popular.  Pupils are taught about the importance of exercise and are given the opportunity to develop their football skills through a range of activities and small-sided games.

Each year our school participates in a 5-a-side Primary tournament at Castlederg High School, allowing the pupils the opportunity to play competitively.

Champions League Football Tournament 2024

Well done to all the boys and girls who were selected for the Champions League tournament organised by Killen Primary School at Castlederg High School. All the pupils had a fantastic and enjoyable day out. The girls team got through to the final and were narrowly beaten by St Marys PS Strabane. The boys team also got through to the final and had beaten Killen PS in penalties in the semis. They were unfortunate to get defeated in the final by penalties. This is an amazing achievement for both teams to come home with silver medals after a lot of tough competition throughout the day. Check out the photos below.
