Riverstown 0 Springfield Ramblers 5

This was a polished performance from Springfield Ramblers in this Premier League tie in Riverstown. Springfield Ramblers started at a whirlwind pace and were three goals ahead after fifteen minutes. The first goal was a volley from outside the penalty area from Dave Curran. The second goal was a header by Brendán Frahill from a great cross from Jason Abbott. The third goal was a neat finish to the corner of the net by Gavin Lynch. Springfield Ramblers continued to dominate proceedings and further goals followed from a brilliant run and classy finish by Paul Ronan and a further header from Brendán Frahill to make the half time score five nil to the visitors.

Springfield Ramblers made five changes for the second half and continued to dominate possession but were unable to add to the score line to the credit of the Riverstown side who played the game with great spirit. The second half was notable for a great performance from Brendán Frahill who moved the central midfield position for this period.

This victory moves Springfield Ramblers to third position in the table in their quest to win the Premier League this season and sets them up nicely for their important National Cup match next Saturday 30th January at home to Limerick side Newcastlewest Rovers.

Springfield Ramblers B 4 Mallow United A 4 (AET)

Springfield Ramblers win 8-7 on penalties.


The Springfield Ramblers Under 11 Development squad won this fantastic Local Cup tie against a Mallow team a year older. The home team dominated the first half which was marked by a brilliant individual goal scored by George Keating who had a great game on the right wing. Captain Aaron Hurley was excellent in the centre of the pitch playing great balls to Dean Moran and the superb Eoin Meaney. Mallow scored a fortunate goal just before half time against the run of play.

Springfield Ramblers started the second again on top, conceded again but would not give up. Raymond Roche who had a quiet first half burst into life when he scored from a great ball from the left wing played in by the superb Alex Ryan who ran at the Mallow defence all day. Raymond finished well and proceeded to score a brilliant hat-trick, a fantastic achievement. As the home team pushed for a winner they were caught on the break twice, taking the match into extra time.

As the team tired in the extra period the defence remained firm and Springfield Ramblers won the resultant penalty shoot-out on an 8-7 score line. Well done to all the players.

Passage United 3 Springfield Ramblers A 0 (AET)

This game was played at a fierce tempo from the start. Even though Passage are three divisions ahead of the Springfield Ramblers boys it didn’t look like it as it was a very even match up to extra time. Both sides had chances with Matthew Pick coming close early in the game. With tough tackling throughout Springfield Ramblers fought very hard and could have sneaked it just on full time when Mark Hannon had a great shot saved well. Eoin Downing in the Springfield Ramblers side made two terrific saves near the end to keep the match alive and took the game to extra time. Then five minutes of madness in the Springfield Ramblers defence and two minutes of quality sealed the game for Passage. A mistake led to the first goal for Passage and while Springfield Ramblers were licking their wounds Passage again scored quickly with some good play.
In the end the score line flattered Passage with Springfield Ramblers being taught a valuable lesson as some unsporting behaviour from the Passage players overshadowed a great cup game. Best for Cobh were Aidan O’Rourke, Danny Roche, Conor McLoughlin, Cormac Downing, Kyle Pender and Eoin Dowling.

Under 16 National Cup

Ringmahon Rangers 0 Cobh Ramblers 1


An excellent team performance by Cobh Ramblers was the reason that they won the game. Driven on by captain Peter Nolan Ramblers played the better football throughout and with their defence marshalled by the excellent Sean Barron and man of the match contender Niall Griffin, Ringmahon were restricted to long range shots. With Cian Spriggs and Dylan McNamara bossing midfield Ramblers were a constant threat to the home team with Alan O’Flynn going close on a number of occasions.

After 20 minutes Barron dealt with a Ringmahon free and from the resulting corner Ramblers attacked and when O’Flynn crossed to the far post Nolan headed the ball back across the goals for Calum Phelan to score. With Cian Van Wijnen leading the line and causing the home team problems Ramblers were unlucky not to increase their lead.

In the second half Ramblers defence again dominated with Ross McCarthy showing his class. Excellent full back play by Eoin Hastings and Danny Lynch provided Ramblers with an outlet for attacking Ringmahon. With Nolan, O’Flynn, Phelan and VanWijnen working the home defence Ramblers continued to be the more dangerous team and in winning the game qualified to represent Cork away to Willow Park in the next round. The management team would like to thank Adrian Tanzer of AST Clinic for the excellent physio work he provided to our players ensuring they were fit for the game.
