Saturday saw the U19’s play their local rivals Lurgan BBOB away for the opening league match of the season. Lurgan started well but were nervous in defence for the first 10 minutes which saw BBOB come close on two occasions with David making two fine saves. From then on it was all Lurgan Town. The first goal came midway through the first half, Matthew knocked the ball over the top and as Niall made his way towards goal was bundled over by the last defender. From the resulting spot kick Niall opened the scoring. Niall, Morgan and Simon came close to scoring but found that the keeper hard to beat.
The second half followed in the same vain but again Lurgan were finding it difficult to convert their chances. The second goal followed mid way in the second half, Blacoe played a through ball down the left for Niall to neatly slot away across keeper. Joshua added a third after running on from his own header to drive the ball onto the bottom right corner of the net.
MOTM: Jamie and Jay. Never gave the opposition an opening and started many of the attacks.
Team: David, Matthew, Josh, Blacoe, Jay, Jamie, Adam H., Adam L., Simon, Ollie, Morgan, Woodsy, Sean, Luke, Niall, Luke.
