On Wednesday evening our Club held its Annual AGM. Many Thanks to those who came and supported it on the night. Each Officer and Coach had the opportunity to go through the year and give their opinion on how they felt the Club had done. Our teams had great success on the pitch and this is a reflection of the dedicated Coaches and Players we are very fortunate to have. Our U10’s won the East Cork League Final, our U12’s won the East Cork League and reached the semi final of the Championship, our U16’s are in the final of the East Cork League and this match has still to be fixed !. Our Minors reached the final of the East Cork League but lost out to Youghal and reached the Cork County Championship 1/4 Final but were beaten by Bishopstown.

U16 East Cork Football Final

We played Na Pairsaigh in Pairc Na Bride on Sunday the 25th of December in the league final.  We started very well and we had 1:1 on the board after 6 mins. The goal coming from some great work in the full forward line by Sophie and Ella, and finished by Ciara O Flynn. Then Na Parisaigh got to grips with our girls and really put us under pressure for most of the second half and they managed to score a goal from a penalty and another from a mistake that gave them another. However we rallied from the defence and worked the ball down the field to get a penalty of our own, and Shauna finished it to leave the half time score Bride Rovers 2:2 to Na Pairsaigh 2:3. We were lucky to be only down by a point due to the brilliant display of Cliona in the goals where she saved three definite goals.

After a regroup at half time and the introduction of Leah and Abbey saw our girls score directly from the throw in, with a well finished touch by Ella. We began to dictate the game from the back with Alice and Caoimhe K keeping their markers very quiet and Alanna commanding the number 3 spot defending excellently while also beginning some of the attacking moves from the full back line. Great link work from Caoimhe O S and Nodhlaig really supported the midfield and half forward line, while Chloe was solid at centre back. Another attack that saw at total of eight passes right from the full back line and was finished to net by Leah, who ended up with 2:1 for 30 minutes work. Rebecca and Caoimhe H ran themselves into the ground running from end to end while Shauna was always out in front of her marker to win possession to set up the next attack. Sarah and Ava impressed on the wings with some great runs forward but more importantly they were willing  to work back and help the defence. Some great scores came from this combined teamwork and determination. Amy came on for the final few minutes and she was not found wanting. Final Score 6:6 to 3:6. We would also like to thank the rest of the panel for putting in the work throughout the year. Well done girls, this was a well deserved win, with great work put in over the year with training and matches and the wonderful encouraging leadership from Chloe. We wish all the girls going up to minor the best of luck and we will see the rest of you in January where it will all start again!

Team: Cliona, Alanna, ,Alice,Caoimhe K, Nodhlaig Chloe,Caoimhe O S,  Rebecca, Caoimhe H 0-1, Sarah,Shauna 1-1 , Ava, Ella 2-2,  Sophie , Ciara 1-0, Leah 2-1, Carol, Naoise, Niamh, Caoimhe G, Amy, Abby 0-1, Caoimhe B.

Minor Ladies finish their season in style!

Our minor ladies football team finished up their 2018 season with an impressive victory against Fermoy last Friday night under lights on an immaculate Kildorrery pitch. This was a special night for our two Kildorrery imports, Aine Keating and Sally Mc Carthy and their families and friends. Both girls played immense parts in this victory.

We were very slow to start and allowed Fermoy to race into an early lead but once we realised we were in a game, we began to play with confidence and quickly overtook Fermoy to go into the lead and didn`t relinquish it for the remainder of the game. A slight positional adjustment in our defence had an immediate impact on our performance and we began to play with more confidence and cohesion.  It quickly became obvious that this bunch of girls were not going to allow this game to slip away as happened in the County game against Kinsale.

Our backs got on top of the Fermoy forwards and that allowed our midfield and forwards to create a lot of chances up front. Some clinical finishing in front of goal and immaculate free taking from Katie Quirke ensured that we went in a half time with a healthy lead.

We started the second half as we finished the first half and quickly put more scores on the board. However, we seemed to drift out of the game for a large period in the middle of the half but great defending from our backs allowed Katie to break away and score a great goal that broke Fermoy hearts. Scores from Fiona Barry, Shauna Hayes and Sally Mc Carthy ( on her home pitch !! )  ensured that we ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1-09. You could see that our girls were not going to lose this game to Fermoy and this was evident in the display of free taking and goal scoring from Katie Quirke where she finished the game with a personal tally of 3-08. She put the finishing touch to many of the scoring opportunities created by her team mates.

Thiswas a super team performance from the start and every one of our substitutes onthe night and throughout the whole year played a big part in this victory. Itproves that you need a panel of 20+ players to be competitive for a wholeseason. Here`s hoping that the girls put in a huge effort next season and maybewe will be writing about a county title in 2019! Finally, a big thank you toJames Aherne, Martin O Sullivan and Joe Barry for the wonderful work done withthis group in 2018. The girls would like to wish Joe well in his recovery andhope to see him back soon.

U13 Girls Football
Bride Rovers  7 -7 Youghal 5-5.Our U13 girls met Youghal in the U13 East Cork Final on Saturday last in Youghal.  We had a great start with Ciara Morrisson  and Abbie O’Connell getting 4 goals between them.   Youghal came back at us and lead by 4 4 to 4 1 at half time. The girls started the second half with great passion as they have done all year and scored 3 goals and 6 points in the second half. All 23 girls put in a fantastic effort and were deserved winners in the end. Scorers : Ciara Morrisson 4 -1, Abbie O Connell 3 -0, Lily Murray o-3, Mollie O Connell 0-1, Clodagh O Flaherty 0-1, Ruby Broderick 0-1. Congratulations to Abbie Hoare,  Ava Barry,  Ciara Morrisson, and Lily Murray who have made the Cork U14 Football panel.

Glanmire Ladies Football News 47/18

Green and yellow dreams.

Generally speaking, playing activities would be well and truly over for the glanmire teams and well earned break is on the cards till late January/early February for everyone, But this year is a little different for the 36 strong panel and 8 management team who have not just surpassed the dream of their own but that of all the members past and present, the junior team set out in mid February through wet, cold and snow having just one goal in mind, to reach the county final, an achievable goal set out by glanmire boss Geraldine o Flynn.
As the game rolled by we found ourselves in the county final playing Valley-rovers a strong west cork side who really pushed us hard and thankfully we just managed to squeeze by with a win, as the Munster series started playing against Thurles sars and Spa of Kerry in the Quarter and semi finals and playing and winning in our first ever Munster final against kill rush. All games that we privileged to play.

Celebrations were short and sweet as it was back down to business of football and fundraising for our all Ireland quarter final where it took us across the waters to Coventry, a trip to remember and another win for us to see us in to the all Ireland semi-final.

The semi final took us on another road trip to Co Tyrone to the town of trillick, a small town bordering Fermanagh, filled will a the most pleasant and welcoming football club and people, who looked after every need before and after the game. As the game started the 2 teams were very much even in terms of football with glanmire lucky on occasion to score, half time score of Glanmire’s 0-6 to trillick a 0-1 didn’t do the trillick team justice as their defense was solid. After half time a burst of energy from Kate Hannon as she took a goal 52 seconds back from the half time mark and Sarah O’Brien’s few minutes later saw the glanmire well in line for a all Ireland final, but trillick weren’t giving up very easily and responded with 2 goals before glanmire settled back down again. A Few points and a hard defense from glanmire before the full time whistle insure a first ever all Ireland club final for the glanmire side.
We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has helped us on the journey so far especially to the hard working management team the equally hard working committee, local and cork businesses, especially ryan’s super supervalu, supporters and the playing panel who have done the whole of glanmire proud.

We now look forward to our final on the 9th of December, where a dream will come or go in 60mins of play. #glanmireabu
