Impressive Display From Firsts

Town 1st team has an impressive win 6-0 over Broomhedge! Lurgan totally dominated the 1st half playing some excellent football as well as a high quality work rate! Great work from Henry Capper down the right resulted in his low hard cross being turned into his own goal by the broomhedge defender. After missing a good chance with his head, Callum Watkins redeemed himself with 2 goals before the break on his debut.

Watkins completed his debut hat trick early in the 2nd half when Henry Capper’s excellent effort hit the crossbar and the teenager got the rebound. Matthew Johnston who worked tirelessly on the left wing got a reward when he dispossessed the defender and provided a beat finish.

Alex Woods, Simon Wilson and Josh Pugh all came off the bench to provide fresh legs. Good work from Ryan McMahon down the right provided Josh Pugh with his first senior goal and Lurgans 6th. Defensively Lurgan were tight all afternoon with Boyce, Canning, Carson, Lindsey and Wing rock solid all afternoon. Midfielders Warren, McMahon and Glenn dominated the midfield with Adam Glen man of the match.

Caretaker managers Johnston, Guy and Al Carson toasted the win with an ice cream on the way home!
