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.
