GLEBE RANGERS 3
COAGH UNITED 1
Glebe Rangers’ new management team could not have failed to be impressed with the response as their side secured their second league victory under them with an 3-1 score-line.
Now managed by Jason Wilmont, Ian Bellingham and Johnny Hume, Glebe displayed urgency from kick-off, perfectly summed up by Ian Christie who turned in his best performance of the season, scoring three goals his third a 25 yard strike.
Coagh’s new manager Andy Smith was more than disappointed in the way Coagh conceded their goals.
Smith has installed a winning feeling throughout the Coagh side, a team who now win together and lose together, but he will have to stop his side making elementary mistakes that gifted the points to the home side.
Glebe’s first goal came after two minutes; Christie caught Aaron Thornton in possession giving him a clear run on goal.
Glebe’s second came after they caught Coagh on the break with Christie punishing the victors with a simple goal. Coagh had little fire power in the first half but did get the ball in the net in the second through Dermot McGuckin.
The players responded well after this goal and looked good for a 20 minute spell but Christie took the wind out of their sails with a 25 yard strike that finished this game as a contest.
