Sharpshooting Simon on target at Carlisle Grounds
TWO OF the Glencormac United teams were in action recently. It was a bad week for the senior team as they faced Arklow outfit Seaview Wanderers twice in one week and lost on both days.
They suffered a 4-0 defeat at home in midweek in a very poor performance. However, despite injuries and lads working, they put in a spirited performance in Arklow on Saturday night before losing 4-2. Barry Fitzpatrick and Conor ‘Chicaritto’ Finn hit the goals. The Glens are at home tonight (Wed) v Saints FC from Wexford.
The 10s had two very tough games over the week against the two top teams in the shield. On Thursday, they were at home to a very strong Wolfe Tone side and put in a brave display before losing 5-1. Luke Kelly scored a superb individual goal in this one and never gave up.
Then on Saturday, they travelled to Arklow United and also lost 5-1. Luke Kelly had given the glens the lead and there was only 12 minutes left when they conceded some very soft goals which put a damper on a great display up to that period. Team manager Karl Bradshaw already has the 2014/15 season in mind and is continuing to train and boost the squad for next September.

The U9s had no game but were the guests of Bray Wanderers on Friday night for Bray’s important home game v Dundalk (a match Bray had a great 1-0 victory in). The club very kindly allowed our Junior Stars hold a penalty competition at halftime and the young Glens were in excellent shooting form to entertain the large crowd. This was a very kind gesture by Bray Wanderers to allow our up-and-coming stars of the future perform on such a stage and it gives everyone a great boost. Separately, both clubs would like to deny the rumour that U9 manager Lar Merriman was removed from the pitch for pure ‘Lack of Ability’ but it could have some substance alright.
