2012 Preds Runners-up in Markethill Youth Cup

Our 2012 Predators came runners-up in the Markethill Youth Cup on Saturday, playing some great football on what was a very wet afternoon.

Starting off with a tough group game against a strong Loughgall side. The 1-1 result meant the boys started off with a hard earned point.

Futher games against Oxford Sunnyside, Dungyone and Glenavon, seen the boys finish second in their group.

This tee’d up a semi final against the impressive Maiden City side, who Lurgan have played 3 times in the last month. Lurgan ran out 3-0 winners to set up a final against the team they played in their first game of the day, Loughgall.

The final was competitive, but with Lurgan failing to get hold of the game, Loughgall secured the win with a single goal. Final score, Loughgall 1 – 0 Lurgan Town.

Special mention to Olly Roney, our newest addition to the squad, who played his first competitive games for Lurgan Town. Well done Olly.

Thanks to Markethill Youth for organising a successful tournament, and congratulations to Loughgall for winning.
