Glenmuir's six-match unbeaten run in Division Three came to an end against Donacarney on Sunday morning.

The only goal of the game arrived from the penalty spot after Ronan Molloy's last-ditch challenge resulted in a Donacarney player taking a tumble. Blues 'keeper John Burlingham was sent the wrong way from 12-yards.

The concession heightened the Glens' sense of frustration considering they had started the match brightly with Ashraf Bin Jamal, Seán Murray and Danny Mullen (2) firing off decent efforts on goal.

Trailing 1-0 at half-time, Glenmuir were well in the game and, in truth, they will be wondering how they didn't manage to clinch at least a point, especially on the basis of their second-half showing where Burlingham was virtually spectator.

Striker John Byrne and Sheils had attempts at goal as Wayne Conroy's side upped the intensity. And Byrne had another good opportunity when heading Seán Murray's cross goalward, only for a home defender to block.

Before full-time, the Blues finally had the ball in the net when Óisín Murray glanced twin-brother Seán's free-kick home, however, it was harshly ruled out by the referee for offside.
