FIVE of the Glen­cor­mac United teams were in ac­tion last week­end. The 8s were away to En­niskerry on Sun­day morn­ing and played a bit bet­ter than the 6-0 de­feat sug­gests. They never gave up and bat­tled to the end against a very good En­niskerry team. The 9s were away to Grey­stones and got away to a great start with an early goal closely fol­lowed by a sec­ond from Sean Clarke. Brian Glass was very un­lucky not to make it onto the score sheet also but he never gave up try­ing. At the other end, goal­keeper Char­lie Jones pulled off some great saves, deny­ing Grey­stones of a goal. Craig Con­roy and Adam Bushe were on fine tack­ling form and along with Laura O’Toole, Kevin Bushe, Mark Red­den, Pa­trick O’Toole and Ali­son Cahill, this team pro­vided the sup­port­ers with a great game. Many thanks go to Grey­stones man­ager Ge­orge Cof­fey and his side as it is al­ways a plea­sure to play against such a sport­ing team. The Un­der 10s had a very im­pres­sive 11-0 win over Ard­more Rovers B. This was a great team per­for­mance from the en­tire panel. Ethan O’ Ma­hony got 6 goals, Micheal Brady 2 with Aaron Brad­shaw (1), Rory Friel (1) and even Stephen “Van der Sar’ Flynn com­ing out of goals to get a grab a great goal in a fan­tas­tic win. The U11s panel was hit by ill­ness and un­able to travel to Avon­more. The youths fi­nally got a game in 2011 when they faced Wick­low Rovers at home and they were cer­tainly very rusty in their 3-2 win. Glens con­ceded in the 1st minute but hit back to lead 2-1 via two goals from Cian McGoldrick be­fore Rovers lev­elled it be­fore the break. The 2nd half could have gone ei­ther way but Cian popped up again late on to give the glens all three points. Cian was by far the out­stand­ing player on view with Daniel Hayes and Si­mon Grant also in good form. The se­niors were at home to Ark­low United and were very poor in a 6-1 de­feat. They trailed 4-0 at the break thanks to some shock­ing de­fend­ing and al­though Kevin Red­den pulled one back early with a bul­let like header, glens con­ceded two more. Dean Kelly, Stephen Mor­gan and Kevin Red­den were the only play­ers who could be happy with this one. As with the Gaa panel, it seems some lads don’t feel the need to train but af­ter this per­for­mance, THEY DO!!
