The Seniors were idle all last week but plenty action for the junior teams. The under-nines took on Greystones on Saturday morning and were in great goal scoring form as they ran out 10-2 winners. This was an amazing performance from all the players who are finishing the season in great style.
The under-10s faced St Anthony’s in Kilcoole and came away with a 4-0 win. This was another great performance from the team with the goals coming from Billy Mansfield, Tony Prendergast, Conor O’Donnell and Daniel Moragahan.
The under-11s had 2 games last week. On Wednesday night they travelled to Wicklow Rovers and came away with 3 points following a 3-1 victory. After a shaky start in the first half where the Glens led by the narrowest of margins at the interval, the second half was one way traffic with the team playing some lovely football. A great hatrick from Kieren Griffith sealed the win.
Then on Saturday morning, they had a 6-0 win over Arklow United at home. This was a super performance from everyone and you could not single any player out as every one of the kids played out of their skin to put the Glens top of the Shield table with 9 points out of 9. Kieren Griffith got another hat-trick, Sam Condon grabbed a brace and Conor Giles got himself one.
The 12s travelled to Wicklow Rovers and won 2-1 with John Fox scoring both goals. This was another great team performance in the shield and helped gain some revenge for the cup semi-final defeat 2 weeks ago at the hands of the same opposition. The Glens went 1-0 up by halftime but Rovers were given a lifeline with 5 minutes left when the ball was kicked out of glens keepers hands and amazingly, the goal stood. But the team kept pushing forward and got their just reward when John scored again with virtually the last kick of the game. Special mention goes to Evan Kirwin who was superb on the night in a great team display.
