Sporting Pumas v Glasgow Irish FC

Sporting Pumas v Glasgow Irish FCTuesday 25th April 2017

Sunday Central Division 2A
This was the final fixture of the Irish debut season with little more than pride to play for after a poor last quarter seen the young side slide down the table. Against a Pumas side going for the league we were always going to be up against it. 

GIFC started the match in promising fashion with Paterson, Owens and Mulheron especially sharp. The Pumas forwards only getting the odd half chance at goal. 

Both Gerrard Hughes and Stiles Owens came close with headers in a closely contested first half. 

HT 0-0. 

The Irish introduced Connor Jack, Michael Brock and Jack Gordon at the break with Stuart Taylor, Gerrard Hughes and Richard McCabe making way. The three who left the field having acquitted themselves well in the first half. 

GIFC fell behind when a nothing shot from the Pumas number two squirmed through goalkeeper David Griffins grasp and into the net for the cruelest of blows. Special mention to our keeper for even starting the game with a broken bone in his hand. 0-1. 

The Irish pushed up the park and could have equalised when Biggins had a header cleared off the line following a wicked Shaun Munro delivery. 

Sporting scored number two when some slack defending let midfielder Chesney curl home a tidy finish from inside the box. 0-2. 

Number 3 for Sporting arrived when a great save from Griffin fell all too kindly for an unmarked Pumas forward. 0-3. 

The Irish kept attacking and Mulheron had a clever effort cleared off the line in the dying moments. 

The players can feel very proud of their efforts in this game against a top side. The club would like to wish Sporting Pumas every success in their quest for the league as they have been by far the best passing side we have encountered. 

Man of the match for GIFC was Mark Paterson closely followed by Jay Armstrong.
