Young Cup: 1st XV v MCB 1st XV

The Young Cup is contested annually between the two schools in memory of former Ballymena Academy pupil Allan Young, who died after a period of illness while in 6th Form.

Allan was a talented rugby player who played for his Year’s A XV throughout his time in school. He was selected for the 1st XV from the start of Year 12. His final match for the school was for the 1st XV in the corresponding fixture against MCB while he was still in Year 12. 

Allan's brother,  former Ulster and Ireland front row Bryan,  presented the cup to the MCB captain after the game.
