Glenmuir United claimed the first piece of silverware of the 2014/2015 season when they were victorious over Ardee Celtic before a large crowd in the U10 League Cup Final in Bellew Park. There was talent in abundance throughout both sides who served up an entertaining game for the spectators.
The two teams matched each other all the way and couldn’t be separated at the final whistle and at the end of extra time and it took a penalty shoot-out to decide the winners.
Ardee settled early and were unlucky not to get an early goal as Jake Corrigan was denied twice in the first three minutes by Glenmuir goalkeeper Allen Jumbo-Julu while at the other end Andrew Wogan produced a good save to deny Robert Kilgallen. Defences were on top for the majority of the game but it was Ardee who looked likely to break the deadlock after forcing a total of eight corners in the second-half but they just couldn’t find the opening to create the all important goal.
Extra time failed to separate the sides and each team took three penalties each, Glenmuir scored all three but Ardee had two spot kicks saved by Allen Jumbo-Julu to settle the outcome.
