The final is scheduled for the May Bank Holiday in the Carlisle Grounds in Bray which also ties up with the Clubs 40th Anniversary Dinner Dance so it promises to be a truly historic weekend. The U8s played a blitz in Ashford and performed very well in their matches to the delight of their coach Andy Free.
The 9s had two matches recently. The first was away to Newtown on Tuesday evening and they were very narrowly beaten by a 3-2 margin by a very big and strong Newtown team. The young Glens did their best and were unlucky not to get a draw at least. Daniel Brady and Kieren Griffith scored a goal each with Erica Conroy, Shane Merriman, Conor Giles & Simon Jasinski all playing well. The 2nd game was on Friday evening away to Greystones B. A brilliant second half performance saw Glens grab an excellent 1-1 draw against another big team with Kieren Griffith scoring a great goal to level the match. Charlie Ward, Jack Carey, Matt Falecikowski, Josh Cahill and Michael Prendergast all played well. The 10s had an off day and suffered a 7-0 defeat at home to Wicklow Rovers. This team is in need of a few players so please contact Karl Bradshaw if you would like your child to play.
