Glenvale celebrate stunning treble

Written by 

What does it require to go through an entire league season unbeaten, win a cup without losing a single goal, and seal an illustrious treble by winning the Winton Murdoch cup? Whatever it requires, Glenvale AFC under-13s certainly have it. David Borland's boys from Paisley stormed their way to an outstanding, treble-winning campaign this year.

Speaking to Youth Football Scotland, Glenvale gaffer David Borland described his team's feat as "superb". He announced himself as "delighted" to be leading such a great group of players. 

"With five league games to go, we found ourselves two goals down to Giffnock Reds with only 13 minutes remaining. We managed to fight back to win 3-2, with the winner coming from the last kick of the game", he said proudly.

He acknowledged the circumstances which posed the need to adapt as their season drew further on: "It was our first season ever playing 11-a-side, so every single week we were learning.

"The biggest thing has definitely been that we have been prepared this season, and have learned to warm up properly."

The man at the helm of Glenvale was full of praise for his two captains, Liam McMenemay and Sean Borlan, for their contribution to the cause.

"Liam, our captain, has been a rock in defence all season for us. The way that he turned defence into attack was key for us. He has now moved on to St Mirren as a pro youth, and we wish him all the best.

"Sean, our vice captain, has lead by example in the middle of the pitch for us all season, nobody has worked harder than him. He has controlled so many games from the centre of midfield."

David Borland indicated that the Scottish Cup is a strong area of improvement for next season, after being knocked out in the quarter finals last campaign to the eventual winners, Banks of Dee.

Congratulations to Glenvale AFC under-13s, 2014/15 PJDYFL champions!
