Glebe entertained Dunaghy on Saturday in a local derby clash at Megaw Park.

Glebe started strongly and had a couple of opportunities before Shepherd opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a tap in from a Greer cross.

Glebe extended their lead on 25 minutes when Shepherd headed in a great cross from Elder. Dunaghy to their credit never gave up and had a couple of chances through Blair and Ramsey with the latter rattling his effort of the Glebe’s crossbar. Just before halftime Glebe made it 3 nil when Elder fired into the net from the edge of the box to give them a comfortable lead.

The second half was 15 minutes old when Shepherd ran onto a great through ball from Holmes to score his third and Glebe’s fourth. On 75 minutes Dunaghy strung a good move together down their right hand side and the resulting cross was unfortunately diverted into his own net by a Glebe defender to make it 4 -1. Glebe’s fifth goal was the best of the game when Holmes struck a 25 yard shot over the Dunaghy keeper and into the corner of the net to make it Glebe 5-1. Manager Iam Bellingham commented: “This was a very pleasing performance. e’re starting to score goals and pass the ball really well. Would like to thank the Manor Hotel for their continued support and their sponsorship of our new kit.
