Lurgan Town U11 Predators done themselves proud against a very strong Cookstown team. Although the boys were beaten 5-1 they gave 100% effort and can count themselves very unlucky.
The 1st half was very tight and Cookstown took the lead 5 minutes before half time to give them a 1-0 lead at halftime. They got their 2nd goal 1 minute into the 2nd half and a 3rd a minute later. To their credit Town defended and attacked brilliantly and a David Ward goal made it 3-1 with 15 minutes left. Cookstown got 2 late goals to kill the tie.
All the Lads can be very proud of themselves to get this far in the competition. Man of the match was split between Callum Emerson and Craig Hibble who were both exceptional.
A big thank you to the parents for their help and support today and the Predators would like to the Lurgan Town MU11 team the very best of luck in their semi final.
Squad: Craig Hibble, Morgan Barr, Ben Cochrane, Callum Emerson, Joel Russell, Sean McCavigan, Oisín Kennedy, David Ward, Corey Nelson, Dean Bradbury, Harry Leavesley, Joel Adamson.
