Glen­vale 2002s con­tin­ued their ex­cel­lent form with 16 wins in a row in all com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son.

They move into the sec­ond round of the Ren­frew­shire League cup af­ter a hard fought 3 – 1 win over Char­lie Miller Acadamy.

G l e nv a l e d o m i na t e d pos­ses­sion through the first half hour cre­at­ing nu­mer­ous chances with the op­po­si­tion goal­keeper mak­ing some fine saves.

Char­lie Miller opened the scor­ing with a bizarre goal from 35 yards. Glen­vale were clear­ing the ball up the park and the ball ric­o­chet against a Char­lie Miller player with the ball spin­ning into the net.

Glen­vale quickly equalised with a su­perb 30 yard free kick, into the roof of the net, from Sean Bor­land.

With the score at 1-1 Glen­vale gained a penalty when Ai­dan McLaugh­lin was brought down in the box. The penalty was stopped by another out­stand­ing save by the keeper at the in­ter­val.

Glen­vale made a quick start to the sec­ond half and scored to make it 2- 1. The ball was played down the right to striker Brian Con­nor who squared a pass across the six yard box for mid­fielder Ai­dan McLaugh­lin to steer the ball into the net.

Char­lie Miller Acadamy pressed hard for an equaliser and the Glen­vale goal­keeper, Ciaran McDowall made some out­stand­ing saves.

With 10 min­utes to go Glen­vale mid­fielder Fraser Lee made a fan­tas­tic run from his own penalty box down the left side of the pitch and got to the by­line.

He cut the ball back and striker, Adam Bridges curled his shot into the right hand cor­ner of the goal from 12 yards.

Glen­vale con­trolled the rest of the match to seal a fine vic­tory over their close ri­vals.

Club cap­tain, Sean Bor­land was awarded the Man of the Match for a fine per­for­mance.

A big thank you to MECHDOORS for their spon­sor­ship of the League Cup tie and sup­port­ing grass­roots foot­ball.
