The se­nior team were back in ac­tion last Sun­day and had a nar­row vic­tory over a good Wicklow Rovers team in a very en­joy­able and en­ter­tain­ing friendly.

Af­ter­wards, the panel held their 2018/19 awards in Plucks. Simon Doyle was re­warded for a fan­tas­tic sea­son by win­ning the Play­ers Player of the Year Award while Nat­tan Wat­ters won the Coaches Player of the Year. Stephen Kir­wan was the clubper­son of the year, an award richly de­served while Carl Tighe and Christo­pher King also picked up awards.

The un­der-15s were in the un­der-15/16s Chal­lenge Cup and beat a use­ful Wicklow Rovers un­der-16 team 4-1. Oisin Kelly got two with Dean Bradshaw and Bradley Cullen adding the other two goals. This was a su­per dis­play from start to fin­ish from the lads play­ing against a team a year older. It was 2-0 at Half Time with Oisin scor­ing from a free kick and Bradley adding to the score just be­fore the break. In the sec­ond half, Wicklow pulled back a goal early on to make it close but Dean scored on the turn to make it 3-1 and then Oisin scored a header form a cor­ner to give the glens a 4-1 vic­tory.

A big thanks to Ryan and Mar­cel of the un­der-14 team for giv­ing the 15s a help out along with Kieren Grif­fiths, who plays on a reg­u­lar ba­sis for both the 14s and 15s.
