Girls Match Day Round Up


e U11 girls played 2 games on Friday night. First up the team lost by two goals to nil and in the next it was a 3-1 defeat with Tilly Douglas scoring for Lurgan. The team is completed mainly of girls that are new to playing the game but they continue to improve and more importantly have fun. There is no pressure for them to win games as it’s all about their development and enjoyment. Well done Ellie, Tilly, Clara, Caitlyn, Phoenix, Grace, Evie and Jodie.
On Saturday the U13 girls took on neighbours Craigavon City. It was Craigavon that took the lead but Lurgan recovered from the setback to win the league game. The goals continue to flow for Maeve McConaghy as she helped herself to scoring 4, Alex McILwaine with 2, Blathnaid Duffy scoring her first and second goals for the club, also Ellie McBride, Katie Gilmore and Kayla McGrory helping themselves to one each. Defensively Lurgan were in control with Chloe Stewart in great form for U13s and U15s this season. Chloe was well supported by Ellie Beattie and Kaitlyn Irwin. Amy Irwin may not have got on the scoresheet but she did assist a couple of goals.
