Glen Celtic AFC
Well done to our Senior team on their 3-1 win over St Cuan’s on Sunday last in Castleblakeney. This brought us to four away wins out of four. We started brightly and took the lead when Sean Gallagher crossed from the left and PJ Shanks hit an unstoppable volley past the keeper with a great strike.
However, we had a lapse in concentration and let St Cuan’s back into it when a long ball over the top was latched onto by Cuan’s Jordan O’Leary who despite the best efforts of Seamus Comer managed to score the equaliser. Half time score was 1-1.
We took the lead five minutes into the second half when Sean Gallagher again crossed from the left and once again found PJ Shanks who finished from close range. The third goal followed shortly afterwards when once again a cross from the left by Sean Gallagher eluded the keeper and ended up in the net.
With St Cuan’s looking to get back into the game it left opportunities for us to extend our lead and we were unlucky with Ryan McHugh and Steven Fox both hitting the frame of the goal.
This along with some great defending left us holding out for a deserved win which leaves us top of the table coming up to the half way point of the season.
Team: Seamus Comer, James Burke, Anthony Comer, Michael Heneghan, Sean Gallagher, Jason Connelly, Owen Mcstay, Michael Geary, Pj Shanks, Ryan McHugh, Micheal Geraghty.
Subs: Simon Stachurski, Paul Gannon, Owen Newman, Peter Thomas Keaveney, Ciarán Trautt, Andrew King, Steven Fox.

Congratulations to our Intermediate girls and management team on winning the Intermediate B Championship Cup Final beating Menlough Skehana 4-8 to 1-8.
Glenamaddy/Williamstown got off to a shaky start but a goal from Noelle Connolly midway through the first half proved to be the settling factor for our ladies.
Excellent displays throughout the field resulted in the score at half time of 2-3 to 1-4 with our second goal coming from Megan Heneghan. In the second half all players dug deep with goals coming from Rebecca Kelly and Amy O Brien. This was a great team effort with all players giving 100%.
Joint captains Johanna Connolly and Hazel Deane accepted the cup and thanked all the supporters present. They also thanked the management team of Peter Keaveney, David Brady, Patricia Keady and Mary Fahy and our main sponsor ECC for their continued sponsorship of our club.
