Glenmore Park on winning streak

THEY'RE the indestructible team which can't be beaten.

No dribble, pass or strike power has been able to outclass the Glenmore Park under-14 division one side, undefeated for the past three years.

That includes both regular season games and, after defeating Penrith FC 2-0 in their grand final this season, finals showdowns.

"They've got respect for each other, respect for the game and a genuine desire to achieve on the field," coach Lee McCrorie said.

"There are no standouts. They're a great bunch of boys who all play an important part in the team and are just interested in fostering their love of the game."

Over the past three years, the side's biggest triumph was a 12-0 victory while they narrowly avoided ending their phenomenal winning streak with a nil-all draw this year.

"It's a horrible feeling actually, knowing the day is going to come," Mr McCrorie said.

"We're very proud of our record so even when we get games that are close, the boys become anxious.

"While we've still got the record, we'll do our darndest to keep it."

Looking to next year, Mr McCrorie said he hoped the team would reunite for a fourth undefeated season.

"I love going to every training session, I love the camaraderie among the boys and I'm extremely proud of them.

"Another important thing is our group of parents, including our manager Deb Salafia.

"They're very supportive and once again foster the love of the game of soccer and instill values in the boys that are going to make them proud young men and valuable members of the community."

The young players' fathers and mothers also formed senior teams, with the dads finishing runners-up in their grand final this year and the mums winning their minor premiership.
