Hit for six

A young Glenavon team were beaten 6-0 by Newry at home on Tuesday night in a friendly.

Gary Hamilton explained that his team selection had been made to give some of the young players game time.

“I had always planned to play the youngsters tonight and the full team tomorrow night against Ards but because Derry pulled out yesterday we ended up with the young lads against a strong Newry side so I’m not too concerned about this result,” he said.
