THE OVERNIGHT frost saw some fixtures fall by the wayside last weekend.
The U8s were at home to Avondale who failed to show and rang 3 minutes before kick off. The 10s were away to Roundwood and following a pitch inspection, was called off. The 12s faced Aughrim at home and staged a great rally near the end to come from 2 down to snatch a draw.
Josh Drew was the star of the show, firstly been taken down for the penalty which Paddy O’Donnell coolly slotted away and then setting up Jamie Harvey for the equaliser.
The whole team played very well on the day.
The 13s were away to St. Anthony’s on Saturday and played out a trilling 1-1 draw. Niall King gave the glens the lead and also saw a late free kick come back off the bar. This was an end to end game and the whole team put in a great effort but goalkeeper Graham ‘Dewey’ Daly deserves special praise.
The 16s were away to Enniskerry and travelled but the referee decided (and rightly so in the interest of the players safety) to call off the match.
Although most of the pitch was playable, the goalmouths were frozen solid. The Youth team had no match but members would like to wish Bob O’Donnell a happy 18th birthday as he turned 18 last weekend.
The seniors game with Newtown was surprisingly called off on Saturday evening despite the game been pencilled in for Sunday afternoon.
Well done to Ian Morris who played on the County Wicklow Youth team on Saturday in their 6-2 win over Kildare.
Ian played right full and gave a very good display of which his club are very proud. Well done Ian.
