On Friday night, Loughgall Youth hosted 5 other clubs for a round robin get together. Lurgan Town were delighted to bring their Vapors Squad to the event.
Playing in five, 12 minute games, the young lads were outstanding on the night.
In Game 1 Town faced local rivals Craigavon City, who they had played twice previously and lost by a big margin in both games. Town were a different beast this time losing out by just the one goal. 2-1 with player of the year Thomas on the score sheet for Town.
In Game 2 Town played against Maiden City. Having never played the Londonderry side before Town didn’t know what to expect but they battled for a 0-0 draw.
In Game 3 Town battled out another 2-2 draw, this time with Loughgall Youth. Coming from two goals behind, Daniel and Cody in the last minute drew the boys level.
In Game 4 Town were up against the ever strong St Mary’s. Losing out by 5-0 but with plenty to be learnt from the game.
Town saved their best performance for Game 5 against Portadown Colts. Running out 5-2 winners with Thomas grabbing 2 goals and the others coming from Reuben, Ruric and Adam.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening for all the lads and a big thanks to Loughgall Youth for the invitation.
Town Squad: Reuben, Nathan, Nude, Thomas, Adam, Daniel, Cody and player of the tournament Ruric.
