Se­niors match marred by in­jury to Glens’ star Cian


TWO OF the Glen­cor­mac United teams were in ac­tion re­cently. The Se­niors were at home to Rath­new in the semi­fi­nal of the Di­vi­sion 2 Cup on Sun­day morn­ing and fell to a 3-0 de­feat in a game cov­ered in more de­tail on the Sports pages.

Rath­new were the bet­ter side through­out and de­served their vic­tory but the game was marred by an in­jury to young Cian McGoldrick.

Cian was struck to the face with an el­bow and an X-ray later re­vealed his jaw was bro­ken in two places as well as teeth loos­ened.

He was op­er­ated on Easter Mon­day morn­ing in St. James’s Hospi­tal and ev­ery­one at the club wishes him a speedy re­cov­ery.

A re­minder again that the fi­nal of the Char­lie Bishop Cup is sched­uled for Satur­day 17th May in the Carlisle and it is hoped to get great sup­port ( as al­ways) from the vil­lage.

The 10s were at home to Round­wood in the shield on Thurs­day night and drew 3-3 in a great game of foot­ball. Re­sults for this team have picked up re­cently with great wins in Ash­ford recorded and this was also a good re­sult.

The Glens led 1-0 at the break thanks to a great solo ef­fort by Harry Flynn. Goal­keeper Dean Brad­shaw came out­field af­ter the break and set up Michael Prendergast for goal num­ber two be­fore Dean got the third with a great strike to the top cor­ner.

At 3-0, they made a num­ber of po­si­tional changes which cost them dearly as Round­wood hit back with three late goals.

Ev­ery­one put in a great ef­fort on the night and well done to lit­tle Michael Prendergast who has now scored for the U8s, 9s and the U10s this year.
