Brideview Utd. A.F.C. Schoolboy Notes
Defeat for United
In what was a bad weekend for United with our U12, U16 and our Premier team all being defeated. it's a long time ago since this happened so it's back to the drawing board.
At best we were back playing games and everyone on all teams were happy with this.
U16 W.W.E.C / TSSDL League Sponsored by Blackwater Motors Fermoy
It was ten weeks since our lads last played a game so at best it was great to be back in action again.
Our lads missed some good chances early in the game and some good saves by the Cashel keeper denying McGrath and English, saw the 2 sides leves after 15 minutes.
As often happens the first real Cashel attack resulted in a corner kick. A scramble in Utd's box saw the striker shoot home from close range. Ten minutes later it was 2-0 to Cashel.
Dean Beecher brought off a marvelous save in the 25th minute. We were back in the game in the 38th minute when McGrath struck a great volley to the net, at the break Cashel led 2-1.
Cashel's keeper was tested early in teh second half from McGrath, Long and Crawford but he denied all three. His Double save late in the game from McGrath and Crawford made sure of full points going to Cashel.
However our lads played well adn did deserve to get something from the game.
Blackwater: D. Beecher, B. Ahearn, E. Marsfield, R. English, E. Murray, K. Crawford, M Steward, E. McGrath, L. Motherway, A. Long. G. Fives.
Reserves Used: D. Costello, & N. Smith
Our league will be to the fore for the U21 International of the Republic of Ireland, v Italy we will have ballboys and girls, Flag bearers, mascot and ball carrier. This is a great honour for our league. Liam Frazer will have more news on this next week regarding tickes and bus information.
The date for the match is 24th of March (Holy Thursday) Before that however we will have some more news on tickets for the U17 game which takes place in Waterford. Local boy Jason Molumpy from Cappoquin should be in this squad. Again more on this next week.
A big clean up of Brideview Park will take place in the coming weeks and I'm sure we will have news on this very soon.

Cois Bhride AGM
There was a reasonable turnout for the Cois Bhride AGM held at the Tallow GAA club last Thursday night. Reports from the Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer were all positive and indicative of the hard work put in by a number of dedicated officers, committee members and team mentors throughout 2015. Great credit is due to all involved. However it was evident also that they require more help and support with teams and the overall administration of the club.

Back on the field
Yes hopefully its back on the field for all clubs this coming Saturday. A small number of games took place last week but finally its all guns blazing for this weekend. Fixtures will appear at the end of notes.
This last week saw Margaret Power celebrate her 50th birthday with a party in Ted's where a large crowd celebrated with Margaret. Earlier in the week Jimmy Cronin celebrated his birthday in Lukies. I understand the cake was beautiful and Jimmy had no problem blowing out all the candles.
The four Tallow lads were in good form as they headed to Goran Park for the races. It was marvellous to see My Murphy win the big race and congratulations to trainer Liam Burke. Liam is a well known horse trainer and it was terriffic for him to train the winner of Goffs Thyestes Chase. By the way the four lads were in even better form when they came home from the races with their pockets full up of cash. Right lads.

Brideview Utd AFC Schoolboy Notes
Please Santa bring fine weather
After another blank weekend I have now written to Santa hoping he will bring a change in the weather over Christmas and the New Year.
It is possible that over the Christmas both Brideview's U18 team and Brideview Utd U16 team will play some games on the all weather pitch in Cappoquin.
Off the field
It's a busy time for managers of development squads as they plan for the next few months. Trying to plan so many games and indeed tournaments. Many of our squads may be heading overseas. However some of the squads will be playing at home.The Kennedy Cup is of course a big tournament and this year we will again have a squad taking part.
Fundraising is a must for the above squads and we hope the league will have something on this after the holidays. We in Brideview hope to have many players involved in these squads.
The club extends it's deepest sympathy to the Cunningham family Tallowbridge Lands on the sad passing of Carmel O'Reilly Cunningham.
May she rest in peace.
To all our players, managers, the parents, sponsors and to friends, the Brideview Utd Schoolboy Committee would like to wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and Prosperous New Year.
Just a reminder to everyone if you are out drinking over the Christmas period to make sure you have a driver to bring you home.
Players and Supporters
We ask both to try and support our Sponsors and local Businesses as much as possible in the run up to Christmas.
Match of the Day
Those of us old enough to remember the old match of the day programmes will also remember the presenter Jimmy Hill. Jimmy was perhaps one of the first presenters to bring football into our sitting rooms. Sadly Jimmy passed away over the weekend at the age of 87 years young.
May he rest in peace.

Santa Arrives on Friday
Yes boys and girls do not forget that this coming Friday will see Santa arriving in the Community Centre! It is hoped that Santa will arrive about 6.45.
The Tallow fire engine is normally what Santa arrives in so I'm sure the siren will announce when Santa is on his way. We normally have over 100 children so we would ask parents to be early. We hope to have a ticket system in place so that parents may sit down in seats until the number are called.
Our usual face painters are rearing to go and no doubt will have pain in their hands by the time 9pm comes. A disco will also run so the kids can step out on the floor and show off their dancing skills. No doubt we will have a few swinging mothers on the floor as well! With tea and coffee also avaliable let's hope for a good nights fun. Admission is just €5.
All games were called off last weekend due to the weather.
The club extends it's deepest sympathy to The Moore Family, Tallowbridge Lands, Tallow on the sad passing of Joan. May she rest in peace.

Minor Football County Final Replay: Cois Bhride 1-11 Brickey Rangers 0-4
The gereral impression from the drawn game back in May was that Cois Bhride were lucky to get another day out and Brickeys were strong favourites for the replay at Dungarvan grounds last Friday night. We had become so engrossed in the expolits of our minor hurlers over the last 6 months that this was almost the forgotten final. whatever changed in the intervening period, Cois Bhride were a transformed side and they produced an outstanding display to win this replay comfortably by 10 points.

U21 Hurling A Cois Bhride 1-7 Dungarvan 3-14
Cois Bhride suffered a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Dungarvan in the quarter final of the U21 (A) Hurling Championship played in Lismore last Saturday. It was a difficult game, apart from a brief spell midway through the first half when they scored 4 points in succession, a young Cois Bhride side were out of their depth against a very strong Dungarvan outfit for much of the game.
Although only 4 points clear at the break Dungarvan took a stranglehold of the game in the second half and any hopes Cois Bhride had of pulling off a surprise faded long before the final whistle.

Minor Hurling Final Replay Cois Bhride 0-11, Ballygunner 1-10.
They say replays are never the same as the drawn game and this was certainly true last sunday in Walsh Park when our minor hurlers lost the minor final replay narrowly to a physically stronger Ballygunner team on a very sticky pitch. Though we didn't play with the same fluency as the first game, we fought back from a six point deficit to come within a score, but with some key refereeing decisions it did not go our way. To say we were dissappointented would be a huge understatement. Ballygunner scored the first point, followed by two Ryan Grey pointed frees, but then the city side scored 1-3 to a single Edward Hynes point to take hold on a game. A goal against the run of play left us trailing by four points at the break. Following a few choice words at half time we got the first two scores of the second half, from placed balls, but Ballygunner scored four points in a row to leave us six in arrears. But there was charachter in this bunch of lads, and we outscored the 'Gunners by five points to one in the remainder of the game with scores from frees and one from play from Ryan. A couple of very dubious decisions such as pulling Edward Hynes back when he was clean through on goal to give us a free left our supporters seething and adding a mere two minutes additional time when there were a lot of stoppages in the half, was also was a bone of contention, as we had some momentum at that stage. However we congratulate Ballygunner on their win, they are certainly the dominant club in the county with the double under their belts. For us we have a minor county final football replay against Brickeys still to play and our U-21 hurlers have a match against Dungarvan this coming Saturday in Lismore at 2pm.
Panel; Davy Tobin, Darragh Mulcahy, Jake Beecher, Robbie Geary, Padraig Roche, Jordan Henley, Cathal Geary, Jake Neville, John Paul Lucey, Dylan Mangan, Kelvyn O'Farrell, Edward Hynes (0-1), Ian Beecher, Ryan Grey (0-10), Darah Buckley, Edward O Neill, Shane Ryan, Alan Buckley, Tom Roche, Billy Hynes.

Brideview Utd v Tycor FC
Brideview welcome Tycor to Brideview Park next Sunday to play the first round of the Munster Junior Cup. Brideview have had a lean patch in recent years losing out on a big scoreline to local rivals Lismore last season as well as similiar opposition to next Sunday. St.Pauls who also play in the Waterford league. Tycor have played four league games so far this season and sit mid table in the O'Neill's Division 2A league winning two and drawing with their only defeat coming to high flying Tramore Ranges who have won all thier games so far this season. It is an odd time for the season for all clubs into being in a position to field their strongest eleven and if we can squeeze through the opening few rounds who knows where it could lead to. Dave McInerney and Chris Murphy have been in fine goal scoring form and lets hope they can continue in that vein when Sunday comes.

Cappoquin FC 2 Brideview Utd 2
Brideview game against Cappoquin last Sunday morning ended in stalemate as both sides cancelled each other out. It was Brideview who opened the scoring when Chris Murphys shot was parried by the keeper into the path of David McInerney and he pounced to prod the ball home. Cappoquin came more into the game without troubling Ritchie Murphy and United doubled ther lead on the thalf hour from the penalty spot. The penalty kick came from a darting run from the ever lively Mcinerney and when he crsossed new signing Jason O'Keeffe was felled in the box just as he was about to pull the trigger. Michael Curley converted the penalty with United looking comfortable approaching half time. But Cappoquin had other ideas and scored on 40mins and could have equalised just before the break only for the last gasp tackle from Aaron Pratt to deny them.
The score remained the same throughout a rain sodden second half up until the 80min when the Cappoquin substituet equalised to leave the final score at 2-2. United now have to get points from the remaining two fixtures to enter the knock out stages of this tournament.

Liam returns to the Cats:
Not much change to the Status Quo of the All Ireland hurling series as Kilkenny defeated Galway on Sunday last in Croke Park. A promising start by the tribesmen had many wondering was it their year? But whatever Jack Tyrell said at half time seemed to work wonders as they came out in the second half a completely different team, ensuring they retain the title given by many as the greatest team of all time. One would wonder, what are they doing that all other counties aren't??

Last year's minutes were read, followed by the treasurer's report and lotto. Chairman Liam spoke passionately and thanked all those who helped and contributed to the club throughout a long and entertaining year. He thanked Fiona McDonnell for her many years service as lotto co-ordinator as Fions is no longer retaining this position. He finished up with a comprehensive and detailed report from senior manager Terence, who, is not standing as manager for the coming year. Terence has given huge dedication and commitment during his term in office and hopefully will continue his involvement in Tallow GAA in some capacity in the future. A full list of officers and committee will be included in next week's notes.

Brideview Utd A.F.C Notes 16/11/2015
Another Blank Weekend. Yes all schoolboy games were called off last weekend as indeed were all Junior games as well. Hopefully we will get back to the action soon.
Our Academy continues this Saturday and a new coach will be there giving a helping hand. I'm sure the lads will be delighted to get the extra help and Michaels help especially with his experience to date both in Germany and Cork City will be a major plus for our Academies.
To Orla Murphy (Cunningham) of Willowbrook on taking the 1st Prize in the C.C.M.A Awards in The Burlington Hotel on Saturday night. It was Laya Healthcare's first time entering these awards but with a local Tallow girl they could not go wrong. Well done Orla no doubt a good night was had by all. Maybe next year the two walkers will run a bus.

Tadgh McCormack scored a hat trick here but this was a great team effort. Keeper Daniel de Souza was outstanding, Daniel is learnng the trade, which is building from the back very well. Defenders Keith Martin, Isaac Almeida and Lucacz Madey played very well while midfielders Darragh O'Brien and Tadgh McCormack kept a good supply of ball going into striker Lee Guildea.

Tallow 1-14 Ballyduff 016
The Golfer Gary Player once said 'The secret to playing well is not how good your good shots are but how good your bad shots are'
This was evident for Tallow on Sunday as we survived a poor first half to go in at the break only three points down. Thomas Ryan ran and worked and suddenly we were four points clear and the match was there for us. When we needed William Henley he produced two great points for us in the first half to prevent Ballyduff from getting out of sight and never let his workrate drop despite being outnumbered on puckouts and when Ryan Grey was needed in the first half he was acurate and kept the scoreboard ticking over.
It was a great game of bluff and counter-bluff as James Murray and Stephen Molumphy circled one another. Molumphy was at the centre of everything good that Ballyduff did in the first half and was outstanding in the last ten minutes, his catch and score to reduce the deficit to one point in injury time being worth the price of admission alone.
Gallant in Defeat
In truty this game could have gone either way. To lose out by such a slender margin in a senior county Semi Final is bound to be heartbreaking for any team. Ballyduff were both dignifed and magnanimous in the aftermath of the game and we thank then for their congratulations and genuine well wishes.
Hearty congratulatins to senior selector Stuart Barry and his wife Aileen on the birth of baby Adam. I hear Stuart is after buying him a hurley already, Starting young!

Tallow 3-13 Dungarvan 0-18
There was a moment in the second half of this tense, sodden encounter that encapsulated the spirit and courage of Tallow last Sunday night. We were three points down with about five minutes to go when James Murray received a short puckout from Sully but Dungarvan read it well, bottled him up and won a free to go four clear. At the resultant puckout James called for the ball again, wanting the responsibility and showing for the ball when another man and another team would have looked the other way. It wasn't long before we were attacking again and the goals started to flow.
In truth, Dungarvan can feel a little hard done by with the scoreline as they played a lot of good hurling but couldn't put us away and, due to our defensive excellence and organisation, never really threatened our goal except for injury time. Again it comes down to courage as Terance stuck to the plan and never panicked on the line or tried to change something that was working, just for the sake of it.
The great Italian football manager Arrigo Sacchi once said that courage is putting on a midfielder to keep the ball better when the crowd is screaming for another striker. Terance kept with the plan of having our forwards, Evan and William in particular, working themselves into the ground while we slowly gained control around the middle and halfback line. The whole team, played exceptionally well, in diffucult conditions to achieve the ultimate finish.
Now on to play Ballyduff, in what will be a repeat of the group game in which there was nothing between the sides and is sure to be white-hot local derby.
The Tallow support was tremendous and it doesn't go unnoticed by team and management. it was fantastic to see and hear so many fans during and after the agme,. Lets come out in droves again on Sunday week when we take on a Ballyduff team that are really coming into their own in this championship. The game will take place on Sunday October 4th at 2pm in Fraher Field

Tallow 0-16 Ballygunner 0-20
After heavy rainfall Friday and a terrible start to Saturday morning, the evening turned out duprrisingly well, with not a drop of frain for the duration of the game. Tallow fought to the bitter end and will be somewhat satisfied with a much improved performance from the last day. They were delt a blow prior to the game withthe loss of Aidan (RIngo) Kearney due to illness. Ballygunner had a superior start with two tremendous points from play. Tallow responded with a point from Thomas Ryan to keep the difference to a minimum. The game was tit for tat with the speed of hurling in the opening half much faster than the previous round. This was no surprise as Ballygunner are renowned for their lightening pace and abundance of talant. Tallow will, howver, be disappointed missing 3 goal chances in this game and will hopw to convert such chances if they arise this weekend as the knockout stages begin on Sunday. The halftime score of 8 points apiece reflected the tight nature of the game but Tallow cound have been in the lead had they been given that little element of luck and converted some of their chances.

Management and players will be extremely frustrated to lose a game which they could have won, playing so poorly. Tallow never got out of first gear and one may be forgiven for saying they were all aware that this level of performance cannot be repeated as we are now entering the business end of the championship. as other results have shown, this year's championship is quite open and up for grabs for a number of clubs, including ourselves. on a more positive note, our levell of performance usp to htis blip has been impressive and we need to return to this for the game in two weeks time. our aim ofr hte next day will be to improve the speed of our huroiong, up the work rate 10 fold and reduce the amoutn of simple errors made. the game itself, what can i say? well 2 points from play speaks volumee and depicts just how lacklustre the preformanc was. We should have taken advantage of the FMW red card in teh second half but didn't and ended up losing the game 1-13 to 0.15. Onwards and upwards from her when we play Ballygunner on September 12th in Bushy Park

Junior Football Championship: Tallow 1-07 Old Parish 1-08
Just when they looked to have sealed their place in the semi-finals, Tallow were denied in the last minute when Old Parish were awarded a penalty, which they converted to end Tallow's involvement in this years junior football championsip. Tallow had earlier been denied a penalty in an almost identical situation involving an illegal foot block.
it really was a game of two halves! Tallow played poorly in the first half but did enough in the second half to merit a narrow victory, there was very little in it either way. We wish Old Parish the best.
It wasn't inspiritn fare to be honest, with just two points in the first half from Mikey Curley. Old Parish were clearly the better team and were six points ahead at the break. It was hard to see how they could lose the game at this point.
An improved second half performance from Tallow in the second half with the introduciton of Jordan Henley gave us added impetus and mobility in attack. He opened the scoring for Tallow with a well taken point and Mikey added two more frees to reduce the deficit to a single score. Old Parish had a point of their own before a Paul O'Brien goal put Tallow in the lead for the first time.
Liam O'Hara Memorial Walk
A large crowd turned up on June 27th last, to show their support to the O'Hara family who had organised this event in conjunction with the postmen of Ireland and in aid of St. Anne's Alzheimers Unit in Dungarvan.
