Played in great conditions this match had plenty of good football  played by both teams. The early exchanges where mostly in mid field  with Glengad winning a number of corners but never worried Paul  Doherty in the home goal. Glengad took the lead in the 25th  minute when a  ball over the top was raced onto by PJ McDaid who slotted home at  the near post. Redcastle replied by pushing Glengad back and just  before the break a run from Terry Mc Colgan beat three defenders but was  brought down by a fourth with McColgan then converted the resulting penalty. Glengad started the second half brighter and pushed the home team back  and after a number of corners they regained the lead when Mark Smith  poked the ball home in a crowded penalty area. This brought a reaction  from the home team who pressed Glengad for the remainder of the game  and had chances to equalize when Terry McColgan headed against the  cross bar and Shay Davenport shooting over when well placed . But it  was Glengad who done the remaining of the scoring with two quick fire  goals on the break .Firstly a penalty when the home keeper was  adjudged to have taken down Kelly who slotted home to make it 3-1 and  Gary Kelly raced clear on the left and advanced into the area to   slot home giving the keeper no chance. Glengad were crowned   champions with this result

Clubman Shirts League Cup Final 22/04/2018

Glengad United                 4

Redcastle United              0

Glengad regained the Clubmans Shirts league  cup with a comprehensive victory over a gallant Redcastle side. Redcastle set their stall out to frustrate the league champions and it was working well until the last minute of the first half. Glengad had the first chance on 3 minutes when a superb Shane Canning pass out to Stephen McLaughlin on the right saw the winger cut inside and unleash an effort which Michael McCole held well. They had a great chance on 10 minutes after great work by Terence Doherty  on the left saw him cut along the byeline and fed the ball back to McLaughlin but his effort was deflected wide by a defender. Long range efforts from Adam Byrne and McLaughlin were both easily gathered by McCole. Just as it looked like  being scoreless at the break Glengad struck. A long hooked clearance by James McKinney sent Terence Doherty clear and he headed over the advancing McCole  from sixteen yards. Glengad started the second half well and increased their lead two minutes  in when Seamus Doherty’s free broke to a Redcastle defender but a poor clearance fell to Terence Doherty who fired inside the near post from the edge of the area. Redcastle replied and a Denim McLaughlin through ball found Aaron Nash who got in front of a defender but failed to control.At the other end John G McLaughlin headed over from a corner before Redcastle’s Conor McNamee and Shaun Curran both fired over the bar from twenty yards. Glengad then had two great chances to seal the game when both Michael Byrne and substitute Christopher McLaughlin raced clean through but McCole made superb saves on both occasions. On 77 minutes Canning released Terence Doherty but McCole blocked with his legs and the loose ball fell to Michael Byrne who rolled it wide of the gaping goal from twenty yards. Redcastle replied with substitute Darragh McConway firing wide before the same player delivered a superb cross from the right but Jack McConalogue headed over the bar. Another fine ball over the top released Terence Doherty but McCole excelled again denying the striker his hat trick. But Doherty was not to be denied on the stroke of full time when Stephen McLaughlin  fed Doherty who rounded McCole checked back and fired a sweet left footed effort to the net from fifteen yards. To rub salt into the wounds Glengad added a superb fourth in injury time after Christopher McLaughlin played a superb one two with brother Stephen before rifling a brilliant powerful effort past McCole.

Man Of The Match

As usual there were players on both sides who performed well. For the losers Michael McCole was excellent while Dean Curran and Denim McLaughlin tried hard. For the winners Stephen McLaughlin , Shane Canning and Adam Byrne were excellent but the award goes to Terence Doherty who scored a tremendous hat trick and whose link u play was of the highest order.

Glengad got off to a dream start in the second minute after Stephen McLaughlin played a neat one two with James McKinney and took advantage of defensive hesitancy to race clear into the area and drill low past Darragh McLaughlin. Culdaff replied and Michael Coyle fed Eugene McLaughlin on the left his superb cross found Brendan McLaughlin who just failed to turn the ball home. A Ryan Greene free into the area saw Coyle flick the ball over before Glengad replied with a driven Seamus Doherty effort which McLaughlin gathered well. Midway through the half Glengad doubled their lead when Culdaff failed to clear a low corner and Seamus Doherty’s effort was blocked on the line but spun up into the air allowing Michael Byrne to power the ball over the line from a yard out. Culdaff kept pressing and Eugene McLaughlin had a low driven effort blocked by the outstretched leg of McLaughlin before on 43 minutes Coyle flicked on for Brendan McLaughlin whose early volley was parried away by Kevin McLaughlin. But they spurned the best chance on the stroke of half time when McLaughlin was upended in the area when he was certain to score. Culdaff’s misery was complete when keeper McLaughlin saved the spot kick and Brendan McLaughlin’s follow up came off the post  before being scrambled clear. Culdaff got off to a dream start in the second half when Brendan Mclaughlin fired a stunning twenty yards effort in off the underside of the bar. At the other end John G McLaughlin released Terence Doherty on the right but he was denied by a superb Ryan Greene tackle. At the other end in a similar situation Michael Coyel was denied by a brilliant tackle by John G McLaughlin. On 69 minutes Nigel McMonagle laid the ball off to Terence Doherty  but his low effort was turned round the post by Darragh McLaughlin. Culdaff ‘s hopes of getting back on terms evaporated when Brendan McLaughlin received a second yellow card for throwing the ball away infrustration. With Culdaff pushing hard in the latter stages Glengad should have killed the game off when Terence Doherty twice raced clear but was denied firstly by a JJ Doherty tackle before seeing his final effort  after he had rounded McLaughlin cleared off the line. Overall as in  all local derbies this was a close hard fought affair with Glengad the more clinical in completing back to back Ulster victories.
