Glengad Notes 12/09/10

Glengad United F.C. moved to the top of the Jackie Crossan Premier Division with a 2-1 victory over Clonmany Shamrocks in Shamrock Park on Sunday last. 

In a thoroughly deserved victory Glengad goalscorers were Terence Doherty and Patrick McDermott from the penalty spot. In a great team performance the Doherty brother, Ruairi and Shane, along with John G McLaughlin and Terence Doherty were outstanding for Glengad.

On Sunday morning in The Crua, Glengad United Reserves got their first win of the season under assistant manager Roy Kelly. Goalscorers for the Reserves were Liam Nelson with a hat-trick, Ruairi Kelly and T.J. McKinley. Best performers for the Reserves were Stephen McLaughlin, Ruairi Kelly and hat-trick hero, Liam Nelson.

Glengad United First team have been drawn against Clonmany Shamrocks at home in the quarter-finals of the West End League Cup. Clonmany knocked Glengad out of this same competition at the semi-final stage last season so another difficult game is on the cards for the home team but having already defeated Clonmany twice away from home this year confidence will be high of getting a result. The draw for the early rounds of the F.A.I. Junior Cup has been made and Glengad United have been drawn against Illies Celtic away in the 2nd round. This game will take place on Sunday October 17th with a 1:30pm kick-off.

Glengad United Reserves face Carrowmena F.C. away in the next round of the Reserve League Shield. Kick-off in Tremone is at 11:00am.
