Our LSL first team welcomed Glenville FC to Bridgewater Centre Park on Friday night in the second round of the Metro Cup.
Playing with eleven players, with seven missing, they went into half time leading one nil. Despite dominating the game for much of the play and putting in a terrific performance, they unfortunately couldn’t take their chances in the end and the game finished up 2-1 in favour of Glenville FC. Scorer for Town on the night was Karl Kirwin.
