Springfield Ramblers Match Reports W/E 29th September



Springfield Ramblers 0 Ringmahon Rangers 1

Springfield bowed of the FAI Cup despite a brave and highly competitive battle against one of the leading team in the Competition, Springers made little of the grade difference between the teams and neutral observers commented the stronger team on the day lost. Having conceded an early goal following an unfortunate deflection, Springers raced back into the game and were unlucky not to equalise before the break following 2 separate goal mouth melees where Ringmahon scrambled the ball away to safety.

The Springfield goal was rarely threatened and outstanding performances from the central defence partnership of Conor Hughes & Johnny Gardiner, ably assisted by converted full-back Sean Hillard ensured that the result was in doubt right to the wire. The tenacious display was also seen in the offensive play of Barry Chandler & George Keating who kept running at the Ringmahon defence right to the end. The first defeat of the season for these minors should also be measured against the fact that these lads were not even playing football last year and to perform at such a high level argues well for the remaining part of the season where they hope to progress to the open -draw of the Munster youths cup next week. The club wish to express their appreciation to Eoin O’Sullivan, and in particular Chris Keogh for making the facilities of St Colman’s Park available for the fixture.

Man of the Match was the dominant figure of Conor Hughes at the heart of the defence.

Unfortunately the lads did not progress into the open draw. In the first half we conceded 2 sloppy goals. A few harsh words were spoke at half time. This led to a huge effort from springers in the second half in very tough conditions. We got a goal back from the impressive Eoin Cullimore but we couldn’t get the equalizer. Some very good performances by Adam Hastings Jack Grant and Danny but man of the match was Eoin Cullimore.

“Springfield Ramblers Under 7’s played their first match of the season on Sunday the 22nd November last. On what turned out to be a perfect afternoon for football, 23 eager 6 year olds took to the astroturf pitch at John Murphy Memorial Park to take on the challenge of Watergrasshill Under 7’s in 4-a-side games. The sizeable crowd that attended were treated to some fantastic displays of skill and plenty of superb goals from the young players. Well done to all who took part. “


The club is holding a ‘General Meeting’ on Sunday the 6th of December in the Commodore Hotel. It will begin at 6.30pm. All are welcome.
