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.
