The lads were missing a few players through injury but the players who turned up played very well and on another day things could have been so different. They went down 2-0 but Cappry pulled a goal back through Thomas McMenamin and they created another few chances but just couldn’t find a way past the Glenea keeper. Glenea grabbed another goal before the final whistle which proved to be the last goal of the game. Final score 3-1.All at Cappry Rovers would like to express how proud we are of their efforts in this competition. Well done lads.CAPPRY COLTS U14’sThe Colts were at home to Ballybofey United at Cappry Park on Friday night last.  Played under the lights in damp and wintry conditions, the Colts produced another great effort and once more are showing massive improvement game on game.  The young Colts side kept the visitors at bay for a large period of the first half before Ballybofey eventually took the lead midway through the half and added two more before the half-time break.  Luke Gallen, who impressed throughout for the Colts, pulled a goal back for the home side early in the second half which was just rewards for his efforts and that of his team.  While Ballybofey went on to add further to the scoreline late in the game, it proved to be a thoroughly entertaining derby game played between two very determined sides. CAPPRY ROVERS U12’sCOCKHILL CELTIC 1-3 CAPPRY ROVERSCappry were in National Cup action on Saturday when they travelled to Buncrana to play Cockhill Celtic in the Ulster Final. This game was played in wet and cold conditions but the playing surface was in immaculate condition. Cappry took the lead in the first 5 minutes when Mark Mbuli pounced on a mistake in the Cockhill defence and Mark forced the ball to the back of the net. Cappry’s lead only lasted 5 minutes when Cockhill scored following a corner kick. Cappry controlled the game from then on and created a couple of chances with the Cockhill Celtic keeper pulling off a couple of great saves and there was also a shot cleared of the line. The scoreline stayed 1-1 until the break.In the second half things started evenly until midway through the half when the Cappry management and supporters were left scratching their heads when Mark Mbuli was denied a stonewall penalty. To add salt to the wounds Cockhill were awarded a penalty of their own when a Cappry defender was adjudged to have handled the ball on the edge of the area. From the resulting penalty Cappry felt justice was served when the penalty was kicked wide. This seemed to instill spirit into the Cappry lads and with 10 minutes to go Daniel Marley’s corner was goal bound and despite the efforts of the Cockhill defender his header could not stop the ball hitting the back of the net. 2 minutes later another Cappry corner was whipped in by Shaun Ward and Luke McGlynn headed the ball to the net to seal victory for Cappry and they now progress to the round of 32 in the National stages.A very good team performance with Joseph Gillespie doing well in goals, Oisin McGlinchey, Shaun Ward, Gavin McCormick and Daniel Marley solid in defence, Sean McMenamin, Andrew Murray, Luke McGlynn and Jack Long working hard in midfield,Evan Long and Kevin McCormack who also worked hard along with the outstanding Mark Mbuli on the day.Everybody at the club are very proud of the achievements of this young team. We would like to wish Martin McMenamin, his management team and the players the very best of luck in the next round.CAPPRY CRUSADERS U12’sCappry Crusaders were in action last Thursday evening when they hosted Ballybofey Utd Cubs. The game was played in very difficult conditions with driving wind. Credit has to be giving to both teams for their efforts in putting in a great display of football. Cappry had the best chance of the game when Dylan Gallagher hit a shot from almost 20 yards that looked to have went over the keeper only for the keeper to get a hand to the ball to push it onto the crossbar. The game ended scoreless in what seemed like a fair result.On Saturday Cappry hosted Convoy Arsenal in very tough conditions with driving rain at times and strong winds. Convoy capitalised on a couple of defencive errors to open up a 3-0 lead with the aid of the wind at their backs. Cappry were attacking Convoy in waves but the Convoy keeper was immense and dealt with all Cappry could throw at them up until Martin Mbuli unselfishly squared a ball and Patrick Carr tapped in at the far post to get Cappry of the mark. Martin Mbuli grabbed Cappry’s 2nd when he drilled in a shot from the right of the box which went right across the keeper and into the side netting to bring Cappry back to within a goal. Convoy were always a threat on the break and were unfortunate to have a goal ruled offside when it appeared to have been fine.In the 2nd half Cappry upped their game and brought the game to Convoy. The Convoy keeper again excelled and made things difficult for Cappry. Aaron Lyons eventually got Cappry back on level terms when a ball broke out of the Convoy defence and Aaron hit a clean shot to the far top corner and didn’t give the keeper a chance. Dylan Gallagher will feel disappointed not to have scored after he had a lot of chances that went narrowly wide or the keeper saved. Cappry’s winner came when Darragh Boyle broke down the right wing and earned a free kick when he was pushed over the side line. Darragh took the resulting free which was half cleared from the Convoy defence only for Conor McGinty to pounce and hit a low drive to the bottom left hand corner of the net. It was a much improved 2nd half from Cappry with all the lads showing great commitment and desire to grind out a very tough victory.THANKSWe would like to thank everybody for all their help on our recent fundraisers.
