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.
