Brideview Utd AFC Schoolboy/girl Notes
O'Rourke Family U17 League
Cup Presentation to Brideview
Captain of Brideview U17 team Ben Aherne was presented with the winning trophy on Saturday evening last much to the delight of players and supporters alike. It's been a long season mainly due to the terrible weather. Its finished now and United are league champions. You will see from the match report that we lost our final game but we had the league won at that stage. Lets hope for the same result in the U18 Fraser Cup.
Results: O'Rourke Family U17 League
Brideview Utd 4, Valley Rangers 5
What a game we had here in this our final league game of the season. We were unbeaten up to now but short some of our regular players for this one it came as no surprise that we suffered our first defeat. We took the lead in the 3rd min when Chambers corner was flicked on by Beecher and captain Aherne was there to shoot home. It was a short lived advantage as Rangers were back level in the 7th min. Again Utd went back in front when Lenenhan shot home to restore Utd's one goal lead. Rangers once again were level at 2-2 after 20 min and both sides went in level at the break.
The second half was like the first with goals comming fast. Utd again went in front in the 47th min when Lenehan struck his second of the game. Tom Dalton twice denied Rangers as they pressed forward for an equaliser. It arrived in the 63rd min. It was now 3-3. Once again Utd went in front in the 70th min when Hynes was brought down in the box and Beecher stepped up and shot home. It was now 4-3 to Utd. Could we yet have more goals. Yes we could. Once again Rangers struck to bring the sides level for the fourth time. Then with just a few minutes left Rangers struck the winner to deny Utd going through the league unbeaten. We were short Eoin McGrath, Kieran Crawford and Josh Sheehan in Saturday last.

Brideview Utd 0 Kilworth Celtic 1
A terrific game here between two sides with little between them. The first half saw both defences on top and anything that beat them saw the keepers in top form. The sides were scoreless at the break. A mistake in Utds defence in the very 1st minute of the second half saw Celtic score the only goal of a terrific game. Well done to our lads who tried very hard to get back on level terms.
Utd's Squad all used: A.Good, T.Twohig, H.H.Lee, J.Morrisson, B. Murphy, G.Hynes, J.McDonnell, D.Power, A. Murphy, L.Tobin, B.Miguel, B.Grey, S.Murphy, K. Gniazbo.
Dungarvan drew a big crowd for their F.A.I Junior Cup game against Pike Rovers sadly for the Blues the result went against them going down 3-1. The third goal came with just 2 minutes remaining. Upto this it was anyones game.
Good Weather for the Races
The weather for once was kind to the race committee for the Point-to-point races which takes place at Shanakill Cross outside Conna. A good day was had by all as well as a good night in The Corner House Bar.
Both the schoolboy and junior clubs will be comming together with some fundraising ideas for the next few months. The club has a good deal of work to be done to get car park, lights and a second pitch up and running and i could go on. However these ideas will be revealed shortly which should be a bit of fun as well.
