After the disappointment of our penalty loss a tough Irish cup match against a strong, stubborn Larne Tech OB team was what we needed. Both teams were clearly up for it with tackles flying in from the 1st whistle. The man bang on form Gary Warwick opened the scoring with a shot from the edge of the box & went in off the crossbar. Larne equalised 2 minutes later after a defensive mix up to leave the score 1-1 at the break. The 2nd half had just started when a superb Warwick cross was powerfully headed home by club captain Mark Clarke. After a result like Monday's this was exactly what we needed no time to mope over cup loss & it proved the spirit within the team. Not only can we play superb football, but can dig in and battle for results. The 5th round sees the big teams enter the competition so you never know who we'll get, so bring it on.
The reserve game was cancelled due to weather.
The U14 game was also cancelled.
There was no game this week for the futsal team as it was the home nations tournament this weekend.
