Nine football players from Charles P. Allen High School were selected to Nova Scotia’s under-18 team, the most from any school in the province.
The team will represent Nova Scotia at the under-18 Football Canada Cup tournament, which will be held at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta from July 9-16.
Games will take place beginning on Saturday, July 9 at the new state-of-the-art Community Sports Stadium located on the University of Lethbridge campus. Nova Scotia’s first game will be against Ontario West.
