Lurgan Town Mid-Ulster U12’s took on Craigavon City in the League at Tandragee on Saturday 4th March 2017. Town took the lead when there was a scramble and Luke Carson continued his hot streak of goals when he pounced to slot home from a rebound. Lurgan were the better team, working hard and had the better of the chances. Jake McMurray made a number of good runs but Lurgan were unable to add a second.
Craigavon City had a very strong player in midfield but Joey McDonald and Ben Hendron in particular made a number of excellent tackles and blocks. Craigavon City put Lurgan under pressure in the second half but Lurgan’s defence held firm.
The team defended very well and kept a clean sheet to run out winners. It was a great team effort. Ben Hendron was outstanding in defence and the star performer today. That’s 7 league wins in a row! Now that’s cool.
Squad: Jack Brannigan, Toby Haire, Morgan Harrison, Ben Hendron, James Wright, Liam Campbell, Daniel Graham, Joey McDonald, Jake McMurray, Jack O’Brien, Noah Treanor, Adam Banks, Tyler Bradley, Luke Carson
