Brideview Utd. AFC Schoolboy/Girl Notes
Busy Weekend for United
Yes it was a hectic weekend in many ways for Brideview with three of our teams U12, U14, and U16’s all in action on Saturday. Add in the academy also on Saturday so I’m sure managers and coaches put their feet up late on Saturday night.
Then on Friday night a big number of locals made the trip to the RSC for the blues victory and presentation. Just the one girl was in this large gang but Lucy enjoyed the craic.

Brideview Utd. 45 Castlebridge Celtic 0
A strong wind here did not help either side to play great football. It favoured the visitors in the opening half but the home-sides defence and keeper stood firm. At the break the sides were scoreless. The wind was behind United in the second half and it gave our lads a great advantage. Stephan Murphy set up Aidan Murphy to open the scoring in the 46th min. Joseph McDonnell made it 2-0 in the 50th minute. Joe Morrissey set up Taylor Twohig in the 58th minute to put Utd. 3-0 in front
Then a piece of magic in the 58th min. from Stephan Murphy. Celtics keeper had come out from goal and Murphy sent in a marvellous chip that beat the keeper and ended up in the net. This was the final score and Utd. ran out winners 4-0.
This was a great performance from our lads. Keeper Alex Good kept a clean sheet with some good saves. His defence of Harvey Hagon Lee, Joe Morrissey, Luka Tobin and Joseph McDonnell gave Celtics front men very little room on the ball.
Taylor Twohig, Conor Henley, Stephan Murphy and Ben Grey kept Celtics defence on its toes. Aidan Murphy and Billy Murphy both came on at the break and played their part here in this victory. So well done boys
Utd. A.Good, H.Hagon Lee, J. Morrissey, J. McDonnell, T. Twohig, L.Tobin, S. Murphy, C. Henley, B. Grey, A. Murphy, B. Murphy.

Brideview Utd. 8 Ballybridge Utd 3
No shortage of goals here. The home-side played with a strong wind in the opening half and it helped to give our boys a big lead at the break.
Alex Dowd opened the sociring before Jake O’Brien took over and scored four more goals for Utd. Before the break. So a 5-0 lead to Utd. at the break.
The visitors now with the strong wind behind them came more into the game and pulled two goals back. Alex O’Dowd and Darragh Spillane restored Utds five goal advantage.
The visitors added number three before O’Dowd set up Josh Good for the final goal of a terrific game. Again a great team victory.
Utd.: Shane Martin, Stephan Roche, Darragh Spillane, Jake O’Brien, Alex O’Dowd, Ian Martin, Alan Hurley, Ciarán Lenehan, Josh Good, Jack McDonnell, William Kenneally, Callum McCarthy, Conor March, Arguna Cantwell.

Lismore 2 Brideveiw Utd. 1
Utd. were hoping to make it three wins from three games on Saturday but it was not to be. The wind favoured Lismore in the opening half. The opening goal came in the 22nd min. and they added a second ten minutes later and they held this lead until the break.
Utd. now with the wind to their backs had a better second half. Lismore’s keeper twice denied Dalton and Hynes. Lenehans fine header in the 65th minute came crashing back off the post. Hynes set up Mark Dalton in the 70th minute but Utd. failed to get an equaliser and the homeside held out for a fine victory.
Utd: D. Spillane, S. Roche, E. Costello, C. Hurley, T. Dalton, E Lenehan, J Chambers, P Hynes, J. Sheehan, M. Dalton, J. O’Brien

To the parents who travelled to Lismore on Saturday, your support is always greatly appreciated.
Birthday greetings to Liam Dalton who celebrated his birthday last week. I’m told that there was a zero in in!! Mind yourself going out the gap at Nagles on Monday nights!!! HA! HA! How could I forget Marian Forbes who celebrated her birthday on Sunday last, I saw Eamonn with a big bunch of flowers. Well done Eamonn
Many of the wags made the short trip to Conna on Saturday morning. They were in good form even though one of the players came off injured. It was down to jumping off the headboards at home or so one of the boys was quick to add. Much laughter and banter followed on the line. Maybe he was chasing the two or was it three dogs. One of the walkers said it was more likely two as they were chased by two dogs one morning on the Quay road.
One of our Premier players who were at the B team game on Sunday afternoon was keen to announce that he will be giving cookery lessons before Christmas. It will all be done on the slow cooker which he tells us is a fantastic piece of equipment. He says it is cheaper than getting married and it never answers him back. You cannot beat live cooking!!
Come on the blues
A big local following made the trip to Waterford on Friday night last and it’s fare to say a great night was had by all. Over 2,500 fans attended on the night. When one thinks of the 250 who attended last season it’s really all about winning.
The night itself with the presentation of the trophy was well organised and enjoyed by all the fans present. Some of the Tallow gang met with Lee Power prior to the game. Lee wanted to know was dominic here yet? Delaney said he is on the way that he’s a slow driver!.
To crown it all the blues U17 team won the Mark Farren Cup Final on Saturday afternoon. Another terrific crowd attended this final in the RSC. Young Colm Whelan again scored and has now scored in a record fifteen games which is some achievement itself.
Anyway I’m sure we will have more blues news over the next week or two. The Social night in the Woodlands is fully sold out but there are some places still for the dog night in Kilcohan Park. This is on Friday 13th of October.
Alan Hurley was a special guest in the RSC on Friday night last. He was in McDonalds early in the evening as a guest of Waterford FC. Alan also took part in the penalty shoot out at half time. So well done Alan.

He is Back
Andy the beardie man was back Clancy’s bar on Sunday night last and sang two beautiful songs. The crowd were on their feet asking for more. James said two would be enough. Andy is still looking for his waders! He said maybe the walkers took them. The only thing they took were the fish!
The Memory Man
One could not finish the notes without paying a tribute to the memory man Jimmy Magee. Jimmy was the voice of many sports. I’m sure Jimmy will be hosting many quiz’s in heave where he is sure to gather a big crowd. Thanks for the memories Jimmy and we have many.
