The Under 15’s –  third game of this seasons campaign was another fantastic victory against Shore Villa 7-1, we only had the bare 11 lads today with Alex Ennion going substitute suffering from a sore hamstring, but the lads knuckled down and gave a good account of themselves, we started the strongest with their goalkeeper pulling off some wonderful saves in the opening 10 minutes, with all the pressure in was inevitable that we would score and after about 15 minutes, Alex Ward chased a ball knocked forward, their goalkeeper hesitated, Alex didn’t and he was able to knock the ball over his head into an open goal, shortly after it was 2-0 as Jordan Taylor who put in a great cross but was fumbled by the goalkeeper to put it into his own net, Shore Villa tried to compete with us but our midfield was too strong and Tyler Smith made it 3-0 before the half with a solo effort to cap off a great first half performance by Upton.


Second half was very much like the first, dominated by Upton, but credit to Villa always trying to make a game of it, after 10 minutes of the second period, Christian Rule scored his first and our fourth goal of the game to seal the victory, Ryan fleming was too strong for their central defender and after bullying his way through several tackles launched a venomous effort from inside the box into the top corner to score the goal of the day and make it 5-0, time was passing and I made several substitutions to try and give everyone a piece of the game, after about 35 minutes, Jordan played a lovely ball into Jack Rhodes who rounded the keeper to make it 6-0, a little bit of poor discipline started creeping into our game, which I have noticed over the past few weeks, as all of a sudden I see our defenders playing centre forward and visa versa with our forwards, I take responsibility for this as it is down to me, and I don’t really like it as our shape goes all to pot and mistakes happen, this will stop as regardless of the scoreline and the opposition we in future will start and finish with the players who are accustomed to their natural positions, however with only minutes remaining Corey Taylor rounded off his man of the match performance with our 7th goal a great individual effort that earned praise even from the opposition supporters, however with virtually the last kick of the game as has happened in  the last 2 games, we lost our composure and discipline at the back, Shore Villa gave it one final push and we conceded for the third week running a silly and unnecessary goal, fair play to Villa and who could deny them this consolation.


Again lads great performance, as I said we can only keep beating who are in front of you and we must concentrate on the bigger games ahead, we must focus on our performances and keep it up, an added bonus for today was that Glenavon dropped a point against Peninsula Stars, so the ball is firmly in our court lads if we want this title.



The Under 16’s – were given a rare heavy defeat by Cheshire champions Vauxhalls in the district cup losing 8-1 with a goal from George Thomson,  Man of Match Tom Murphy
