The lat­est from Glen­cor­mac United soc­cer


ALL SEVEN of the Glen­cor­mac United teams were in ac­tion last week­end. The U8s beat En­niskerry 1-0 in a fan­tas­tic match and per­for­mance at Ry­ders Field on Satur­day. This was a great team per­for­mance from all the play­ers es­pe­cially Glen Brad­shaw, Conor Gal­lagher, Cian Cahill, Cian Hind and Alex Flynn. Cian got the all im­por­tant goal af­ter many ef­forts through­out the game from all the squad and it would have been more but for the En­niskerry keeper played fan­tas­tic to keep the score­line to a min­i­mum .

The U9s suf­fered a sur­prise 7-0 de­feat in the WDSL Cup to Grey­stones. Glens had beaten their op­po­si­tion on al three pre­vi­ous meet­ings this sea­son but were up against it from the start and trailed 4-0 at the break. The de­feat might have been big­ger only for the ex­cel­lent goal­keep­ing of Char­lie Jones who made a se­ries of great saves. Craig Con­roy and Laura O'Toole also played their hearts out.

The U10s had an­other good win on Satur­day, this time a 1-0 vic­tory over Wick­low Rovers. Ethan O'Ma­hony got the only goal of the match and this was a hard battle to the end but they saw it through. Sean Red­den, Aaron Brad­shaw, Jamie Byrne and Michael Brady were all in great form. The en­tire un­der 10 Panel would like to thank Pat Heavy from the Glen­view Ho­tel for spon­sor­ing track­suits for the team.The 11s were at home to Ark­low Town and put in a bet­ter per­for­mance than the 7-2 de­feat sug­gests. They were 2-1 down at the break af­ter a tight first half and had three goals dis­al­lowed for tight off­sides. Michael Brady got both goals and he was best along with Matthew Sin­nott, Han­nah Doyle and Amy Greene.

The 12s faced Avon­more and suf­fered a 62 de­feat. The panel were very much un­der strength for this one but put in a good ef­fort with goals from Adek Gur­ralle and Mick Brady. Noel Nolan and Jamie Woods bat­tled to the end.

The youths played Wick­low Rovers away and drew 0-0. The team must have had the mock ex­am­i­na­tions on their mind in this one as they never got their pass­ing game go­ing with Danny Hayes, Paddy Tun­ney, Dean Kelly and Luke Mc­Manus best on the day.

The se­niors were away to Avon­more and had to field a lot of the Youth team as they have a lot of in­juries at present. Alan Pyke got an early goal to give the glens the lead but the game fin­ished up 1-1. Paul Devlin, Niall Mel­don and Paddy Tun­ney were the top per­form­ers.

The Club would like to con­grat­u­late their pop­u­lar mid­fielder Mick Rooney and his wife Mar­garet on the birth of their first child, a baby boy which they have called Ethan Wayne Rooney. Mick has given the club many years of loyal ser­vice and ev­ery­one at G.U.F.C. is de­lighted for both him and Mar­garet and look for­ward to see­ing lit­tle Ethan in the Soc­cer Academy in fu­ture years.
