The Lurgan Town girls season back up and running. The U15s went into their first league game of the season against Ambassadors at the Arena on Friday night. Despite missing Maeve, Amelia and Jessica G they picked up a 2-0 win. There wasn’t a lot between the 2 teams throughout the match but Lurgan got the vital breakthrough when Ellie Beattie hit a thunderbolt from 25 yards which the keeper couldn’t handle. The second goal was scrappy as Amy Irwin got the final touch to score.
A very pleasing performance with JP, Nicole, Amy B, and Ellie B outstanding in the defensive unit. Then a central midfield pairing of Chloe and Kaitlyn giving everything then the attacking players of Kelly P, Captain Ellie McBride, Katie Gilmore, Amy Irwin and the return of Molly McCaughey all linking up really well.
The U13s have played 2 games in the last week against strong Mid Ulster Ladies and Craigavon City teams. Unfortunately they lost both but all the girls are still finding their feet. However, they are showing improvement and play with desire and enjoyment. They will continue to grow as they play more games. Well done Caitlyn, Tilly, Jodie W, Tamah, Louise, Amy I, Grace, Hannah, Emily, Evie, Clara, Ellie B and Ellie M.
