Brideview Utd Junior and Schoolboy Notes
- Published: 15 April 2019
The O'Rourke Family Youth League
McGrath the hero
Utd's last game in the O'Rourke Family Youth League saw them clinch all three points and go joint top of the League.
Our Junior A team face the winners of Valley Rangers and Lismore in The Barry Cup Semi Final and Utd and Utd's B team played their Quarter Final in Cappoquin on Monday night last. We said it last week could we yet have an all Utd Final
Result: Youth League
Brideview Utd 1 Cappoquin-Railway 0
A weakened visitors team should have seen Utd well on top here but it was not to be and it took a second half goal by Eoin McGrath to secure the points. Utd themselves were short some first team players here but players like Josh Sheehan, Shane Casey and Diarmuid Costello all played their part in the victory as did Joas Almeida when introduced in the second half.
Utd must now wait for Cappoquin-Railway final game to Valley Rangers to see what happens. A win for Cappoquin-Railway will be enough to get them into a playoff with Utd.
Utd: E.Costello, W.Cunningham, J. Scotton, D.Beecher, D.Costello, K.Crawford, E.McGrath, J.Chambers, J.Sheehan, P.Hynes, S.Casey.
Man of the Match
Eolan Costello who brought off some terrific saves during the game.
Again a big crowd at the Academy on Saturday morning last with Natalie, Gavin and John in action. The kids enjoyed some Easter eggs when finished which went down a treat.
There will be no Academy this coming Saturday as the coaches will be away. Our Wednesday Academy is also going well with Sinead and Georgina doing a terrific job, who knows maybe a visit by Mister Easter Egg may happen this evening.
The Club would like to wish coaches, managers, players of both Junior and Schoolboys teams as well as players, sponsors, supporters a very happy Easter and enjoy the holidays.
Some of our Junior committee are heading to Wexford on this Thursday night. Just for a few nights . I hope the Stations of the Cross is on their plan, Enjoy lads.
Our U9 Academy played Valley Rangers on Saturday last. Good football was not easy due to the very windy conditions.
Harry Power, Paulo Miguel and Paul Hegatry were on the mark here. Each scoring a goal, Well done boys. Utd's squad all played : James McDonnell, Paul Hegarty, Oisin Lynn, Oscar Cunningham, Jack Dee, David Murphy, Paulo Miguel, Harry Power, Josh Mangan,Shay Feeney. Well done to all the boys.
We put back the camp due to the weather. Hopefully by the time these notes appear we will be in the middle of the camp. More on this next week.
