A young Glenavon U20s team were defeated by Warrenpoint U20s on Monday night.
With 7 players making their U20s debuts the young squad, containing four 15 year olds and four 16 year olds, put in a really solid performance and took an early lead when Ben Kelly poked the ball home from close range. The lead didn’t last long however, and Warrenpoint went on to score twice to make the scoreline 2-1 to the visitors at half time.
Despite a spirited second half performance, 2 more quickfire goals from set pieces saw Warrenpoint take all 3 points back up the road.
However the result on the night was secondary to the performance and the opportunity for so many young players to step up and show the U20s coaches what they are capable of.
