We got back to winning ways on Saturday following a 2-0 victory over NFC Kesh at Drumad. The game itself wasn’t a great spectacle and similar to the previous week as we had a mountain of possession by not much to show for it.
We dominated the first half, Jack Kerr going close on a few occasions and was also denied what looked like a blatant penalty when he was taken down when through on goal. Tiarnan Magee also tested the Kesh keeper following an excellent move down the left.
Paul McGrath had a few sights at goal but we couldn’t find a way past the Kesh defence. It took a spectacular goal from man of the match Raymond Carroll to break the deadlock when he collected a loose ball, cut inside and fired home from 25 yards out.
The second half became a bit more open with chances at both ends, but Matty Woods doubled our advantage with a fine header. Substitute Robbie Little had a few chances to kill the game off, whilst their keeper made another fine save to deny Kerr and also pushed a Paul McGrath bullet header round the post.
In fairness to Kesh they battled right to the end and with only a few minutes to go William McFrederick was forced to make an excellent point blank save to maintain our two goal cushion. Not a great performance, but three points and a clean sheet gives us a platform to build on for next week’s game away to Killen.
Our reserve team travelled to face Kesh and despite goals from Curtis Coalter, Christopher Beacom and Nathan Bryans, it was not enough to claim the points as Kesh managed to find 4 goals from somewhere to squeeze past us with a 4-3 victory.
With the bare 11, our 3rd team hosted a strengthened Glebe Reserves at Taylor Park. Despite holding their own for some time, Glebe went on a scoring rampage, eventually putting 8 past us.
Our U16s recorded their first victory in the MUYL with a 4-2 win over Tandragee on Saturday morning with a great team effort and well done to Jason and Ernie who are managing this team.
This week our 3rd team travel to Lisnarick, our 2nd team host Killen Reserves whilst our 1st team travel to Killen, all who will be looking to get points on the board before the festive break.
Some committee members, friends and family travelled to Dublin recently on an educational/shopping trip and a great time was had by all, thanks to Mandy Vance for organising.
There was no winner once again of our weekly lotto – numbers drawn were 4, 5, 11 and 27 with hot picks going to John Jordan, John Foster and Alison McElhinney. The jackpot now stands at £8,200 which would give someone a very merry Christmas indeed!
There were another 17 fallers after week 3 of our LMS competition with over 75 advancing in to week 4.
A reminder to all that tickets are now available for our Annual Duck Derby and also please note our Boxing Day Quiz shall be taking place again this year.
