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.
