St Pat’s own Calum Willis represented Scotland in the annual fixure between the Scottish Independent Schools Football Association (SISFA) and its English counterpart. Hosted by each nation alternately, it had never been won by Scotland away from home until last month at Davidson Stadium, near Manchester. The squad, drawn from seven independent schools across Scotland, bonded well as a group and put in a magnificent performance to win 1-0 with a stunning thirty yard free-kick. It was a great occasion for the players, parents and coaches,who were all made very welcome by supporters and staff at Altrincham FC.
Calum (17), a member of St Pat’s HSC since 2015 and Easter Road season ticket holder since 2005, collected his 2nd SISFA cap and was delighted not to concede any goals – a first for any Scottish goalkeeper in this fixture.
