Lurgan Town U13 Colts took on Newcastle at Dromore on Saturday 14th October 2017 in the Lisburn league. Newcastle were dangerous on the break and came close to scoring early on. Their winger made a number of dangerous runs and, after a rebound from one of his crosses, Newcastle slotted the ball home.
Caolan Ritchie pulled Lurgan level with a great long range shot over the keeper to his left band side. Newcastle had come close a number of times to scoring a second and made it 2-1 just before half time. In the first 10 of the minutes second half Newcastle put Lurgan under a lot of pressure and made it 3-1. Newcastle went on to score 2 further goals to make it five. Harry Smith hit a brilliant through pass for Luke Carson late on but Luke ran out of space. Lurgan had very few clear cut chances.
Lurgan didn’t give up but Newcastle are a very impressive and strong team. We look ahead to next week.
Match Squad: – Jack Brannigan – Jake Byers, Toby Haire, Morgan Harrison, Ben Hendron – Liam Campbell, Daniel Graham, Joey McDonald, Jake McMurray, Harry Smith – Adam Banks, Luke Carson, Caolan Ritchie
