Lurgan Town LL12s team played Glentoran in the quarter finals of the NIBFA cup on Friday night at the Arena and came away with a 4-0 win. The boys played excellent football throughout the whole game, their passing was on point & the young Glen’s team couldn’t live with their high pressing tempo.
The 1st goal was a well taken vally from Dylan Alexander. 10 minutes later Jamie stringer added the 2nd with an over head kick. The boys came into the the break with a 2-0 lead. The 2nd half started with the glens putting pressure on the Lurgan defence but the soild back 3 of Daniel Dillion, Krisy Cassells & Patryk Suchonski with Shea Murphy in nets stood firm. The 3rd goal came 10 minutes in with a cross from the left from Andrew Orr that picked out Jamie Stringer on the far corner of the box; he beat 1 defender & fired in a low hard shot into the bottom corner of the net.
With the boys well on top & the midfield of Matthew McKee, Andrew Orr, Bobby Harvey & Jamie Stringer dominating play the subs were introduced to the game. Jamie Stokes, Luke Vennard, Conan Moore & Dylan Emerson. It was Dylan Emerson who popped up with the 4th goal after good work down the right from Conan Moore & Jamie Stringer. The game ended in a 4-0 win and Town march on to the semi finals. Well done to the boys for a great team performance.
Following on from their impressive Friday night victory, the Lurgan Town lads played Glendowen Colts in the Lisburn Cup on Saturday morning. Once again they were on form, running out with an 8-1 win which sees them through to the quarter finals of the competition. The boys tried hard to play their passing game but found it difficult on a very bumpy pitch. But to their credit they stuck at it. The goals came from Jamie Stringer (2) , Krisy Cassells, Jamie Stokes, Sylan Alexander, Andrew Orr , Dylan Emerson & Conan Moore. Another great team performance. Well done for a good weekend of football.
