Soc­cer news


FOUR OF the soc­cer teams were in action last week­end. The Un­der-8s had a great 2-0 win away to Ark­low Town on Satur­day. Sean Clarke was the hero, scor­ing both goals in a great team per­for­mance.

The young Glens were un­der a lot of pres­sure in this one but hit Ark­low with two great counter at­tacks to win the game. Ali­son Cahill, Craig Con­roy and goal­keeper Cian Cahill were ex­cel­lent along with Sean.

The Un­der-9s were away to St. Peters in Bray and suf­fered a 4-0 de­feat. While Peters were the bet­ter team, how a goal can be awarded 2 min­utes af­ter its scored as­ton­ished par­ents present and Glen­cor­mac were not happy with the over­all gen­eral sense of fair play.

How­ever, the team showed great com­mit­ment through­out with Os­car Wain­right Smith, Aaron Brad­shaw and Jamie Byrne all in great form.

The Un­der-10s had a fan­tas­tic 3-0 win over Grey­stones. Man­ager Sean Con­roy re­ceived a vote of con­fi­dence at the re­cent monthly man­agers meet­ing to ex­tend his con­tract un­til the end of the sea­son and his team re­sponded on the day.

Mar­cus Len­non, Michael Brady and Greg Doyle all hit the back of the net with Conor Devlin, Amy Greene and goalie Stephen ‘Van Der Sar’ Mullery ex­cel­lent in a great team ef­fort.

The Un­der-13s gave Ard­more Rovers a walkover and must apol­o­gise to Ard­more for the fix­ture mix up.

The se­niors were at home to En­niskerry in a real lo­cal derby where the glens con­ceded a late goal to lose 3-2. Glens found them­selves 20 down early on but fought back to 2-2 at the break through strikes from Ian and Paul Devlin. Kevin Red­den went very close to winning it be­fore En­niskerry’s hotly dis­puted win­ner but good luck to En­niskerry now in their quest for the Divi­sion One ti­tle. Pa­trick Har­vey, Ian Mor­ris, Paul Devlin and Stephen Mor­gan were the best on the day. The club have just re-launched their web­site un­der a dif­fer­ent ad­min­is­tra­tor and can be viewed on www.glen­cor­ma­ .
