United seniors lose 3-2
THREE OF the Glencormac United teams were in action over the weekend. The Seniors travelled to play Arklow Town in the Quarter Final of the Wicklow Cup on Saturday night and were very unlucky to lose 3-2. Twice Arklow lead but twice the glens came back with goals from Cian McGoldrick and Gavan Burke before they conceded a late strike to exit the competition. Andy Free, Colm Nolan and Gary Messett were outstanding in a good team display. This game was a dress rehearsal for the Charlie Bishop Cup Final next month. The final is scheduled for Saturday 17th May in the Carlisle and it is hoped to get great support (as always) from the village.
The U8s were at home to Arklow United and had a very impressive 4-0 win. This was a really top performance with Rueben Wainright Smith, Billy Mansfield and Megan Bradshaw superb in defence, Daniel Moraghan everywhere in midfield and capped off with another great goal, Bobby Free also scored again along with a terrific finish from Luke Honan and a last minute long range drive from Finn Kelly which nestled in the bottom corner, well done all.
The 9s had two matches in the past week. 1st was an away friendly against Ardmore A on Wednesday night. The Glens trailed 2-0 at the break due to another slow start against a good Ardmore team but after the famous hair drier treatment at half time, they came out a different team. Erica Conroy was super in defence & Jack Carey worked his socks off in midfield. Two well taken goals from Shane Merriman levelled the match with his second scored with his left foot, which half of Bray no doubt heard about when he ran to the side line to tell all! The 2nd match was at home to Wolfe Tone A. This was a pretty tired display from Glens & with a few players missing; they were not at their best in this game. Again they trailed 2-0 when they got a goal back with good work from Jack Carey & Bobby Free in the middle setting up Shane Merriman who slotted away a good goal which gave them hope but a late goal finished the Glens off just at the death with a 3-1 loss.
