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.

The Glen­cor­mac Utd U9s in the Penalty Shoot out at half-time at the Carlisle Grounds on Fri­day for Bray vs Dun­dalk – Si­mon Jasin­ski was the win­ner.
