Lurgan Town Under 13 Colts took on Crewe United at Wallace Park on Saturday 3rd February 2018 in the U13 League Three Cup. Lurgan took the lead when Daniel Graham played the ball through to Caolan Ritchie. The keeper saved Caolan’s first shot but he made it 1-0 from the rebound. Harry Smith went close just before half time but it was still 1-0 at the end of the first half.
There were few clear cut chances at the start of the second half until Town went very close at the goalkeeper’s near post from a cross come shot from Liam Campbell. Lurgan were then awarded a penalty when Harry Smith was fouled in the area. Daniel Graham placed his shot to the keeper’s left to make it 2-0. Lurgan ran out deserved winners with a really good battling team performance. Noah Treanor had a very good game at left back.
That’s back to back wins during a very disrupted period of fixtures over the winter and the Colts can be proud of themselves.
