Hard Fought Draw For The U14 NL Squad

CYFC U14s NL 0 – 0 Glenavon

Cookstown continued their unbeaten start to the season when they entertained Glenavon at Beechway. Both teams cancelled each other out ultimately but the continual improvement from Cookstown was evident. They have become hard to break down and beat but on an ‘off day’ they dug deep and got a point against the multiple cup finalists from last year. In a scrappy start, Purvis was quickest off his line to foil a through ball while Leek’s shot was well held by the Glenavon keeper. With much of the game being fought in the middle of the pitch, McElhatton, O’Donnell and Kane were busy and came out on top after a punishing first half.  In the second half, it was clear both sides wanted to win but couldn’t find that piercing pass to open the defence. O’Hare had a good effort punched away by the keeper while Corr had his effort well saved. At the end Devlin made a superb last ditch tackle to save the draw and Cookstown can be pleased with their efforts but know they can still improve as the games keep coming. They entertain Ballinamallard at home next week.

Squad: Purvis, Donnelly, Donnell, O’Hare, Leek, Devlin, O’Donnell, McElhatton, Kane, O’Hare, Corr, Ferguson, McNally and Donaghy.
MOTM: Stefan Donnelly
