SAT 26th

U13 National Cup

Springfield Ramblers 1 Bellurgan United 3

This was a game of chances taken and chances missed. The Springfield Ramblers side held their own against a very big and physical Bellurgan side. In a game where both sides played some very good football the Dundalk side took the chances that they created to qualify for the last 16 of the competition. They led by a single goal at the break and doubled their lead midway through the second half. The home side rallied and took the game to the Bellurgan team and were rewarded when they got a goal back with ten minutes remaining. But as they searched for an equalising goal they were exposed at the back and the Dundalk side snatched the decisive third goal in the dying minutes.

SUN 27th

U11 Cup

Midleton A 2 Springfield Ramblers B 3

This was a fantastic result for our Under 11 Development Squad against a team from a higher division. The team worked very hard with only 11 players and no substitutes due to illness among several of the squad. From goalkeeper Oisin Cronin through defenders Olan Mackey, Josh O’Mahony, Cian O’Mahony and Kealan Kavanagh, midfielders Con Lynch, Luke Quinn, Jamie Gilmartin and Olan Farrell and forwards Sam Noonan and Adam Delaney. It was a great display from all and a great result. Well done to all.

Under 16 Premier League

Cobh Ramblers 3 Midleton 2

This was a very hard fought win for Cobh Ramblers in this Under 16 Premier League tie against a dogged Midleton side at a very windy VEC Grounds. The home team started very well and went a goal ahead when a through ball found Dave Cahill one on one with the Midleton goalkeeper and he proceeded to scoop the ball over the advancing keeper. The second goal came from an attack down the right and from the resultant cross Cillian Tallon finished to the far corner. The Midleton side were resolute however and continued to contest every ball. They were rewarded for their efforts when they won a free kick outside the penalty area and from the resultant kick the ball struck Adam Thompson in the defence and was deflected past Shane Hallahan in the goal.

The second half continued as a tough encounter and with Midleton now playing with the strong wind behind them they pressed forward looking for the equaliser. They were again rewarded when after a mistake in the home defence Midleton were awarded a penalty. The kick was sweetly struck to the corner of the goal for the equaliser and Rambler’s woes were compounded when the referee showed a red card to the defender for the ‘last man’ tackle for the penalty.

The home side were now under pressure to attain a result but fresh from a midweek trip to Nottingham they showed great team spirit and camaraderie to up their game again to take the game to the Midleton side. With time running out the ten men won a corner on the right and from the kick Brendán Frahill just out of his sick bed powered a header home for the winning goal.
