Blackwater Motors Fermoy u16 League
Defeat in Kilworth
Blackwater suffered a 1-0 defeat away in Kilworth on Saturday afternoon last and now sees up to four clubs involved in what should be a real thrilling finish to this league in the new year. We had two players with the U12 development squads who drew with Kilkenny on Sunday last namely Ciarán Lenehan and Eoin Potter adn i am told both did very well. Well done boys.
Kilworth Celtic 1 Blackwater Utd. 0
A win here for Utd. would hyave put them top of the league but it was not to be and the league is now wide open between four clubs. Fogarty tested celtics keeper in teh 12th minute however Beecher cleared off the line to keep Utd. in the game, O'Connor brought off a great save in the 28th minute so chances fell to both sides. The only goal of the game came for Celtic after a good move in the 36th minute.
Wright put fogarty through in the 39th munite but his effort went just outside teh post and the homeside went in leading 1-0 at the break.
Both sides tried hard in the second half and Utd did up the pace of the game. O'Connor and Fogarty both went close to getting Utd. back on level terms but Kilworth's keeper denied them.
Byrne and Almedia were unlucky late in the game when both shots went wide from close range. So a win for the homesick who have now brought thenselves back into the chase for the league title.
Utd. Squad: R. O'Connor, J. Chambers, J. Osbourne, E. Mansfield, D. Beecher, W. Cunningham, K.O'Connor, B. Wright, F. Hogan, M. Fogarty, D. Costello, D. Byrne, J. Almeida.
The club extends it's deepest sympathy to the Curley families Tallow on the sad passing in England of Michael Noel (Blackie) Curley, to the Delaney and Pratt families Tallow on the sad passing of Michael in Galway, to the Jones family Youghal Road on the sad passing of John O'SUllivan Lismore and to the Guildea family of Tallow and Dublin on the sad passing of Mary, May they rest in peace.

Well done to everyone connected with this wonderful performance, it was fantastic. The club manager of our second team namely, James Clancy did have a problem with his knickers while player William Curley showed his talent off the field like Liam Motherway and Oisin Ormonde, well done folks.
News From Town:
Well it is that time of year again but I said I would just let you know, one of the lads who was having a pint at the weekend at the counter in the Corner House was so soft that he just fell asleep. I'm not sure if it's the Cork girl that's turning him out on the early mornings to work. Again in the Corner House I understand two lads picked up L signs at the weekend. Something about sticking to the same table Ha! Ha!
Thanks to the robin for thiee true stories.
