Waterford FC v Cobh Ramblers – Preview & Team News

Published

on

Cobh Ramblers travel to Waterford on Friday in what many describe the game as the biggest of the season!

Ramblers go into the game on the back of an impressive win over UCD at the weekend, a result that leaves them 3 points clear of third place. A win on Friday would close the gap between second place Ramblers and leaders Waterford to just three points as we enter the final quarter of the season.

Speaking to cobhramblers.ie after the UCD game Manager Stephen Henderson said;
‘’The UCD win was based on an incredible squad ethos that has developed over the last few seasons. The players showed a determination that typifies the Ramblers mentality of never giving up even when the odds are stacked against us especially with the amount of injuries and suspensions we had to contend with for this game.’’

However, the big thing on Henderson’s mind ahead of Friday is more injuries;
‘’Unfortunately, we have picked up more injuries and are literally down to the bare bones for this huge game which is really unfortunate’’

‘’This means we will again have to dig even deeper into to depths of our sporting souls and deliver the performance of our season if we are to get anything out of this game at such an important part of the season. We have organised our own doctor to travel with us on Friday just to see what kind of an 11 we can put on the pitch without putting players at further risk.’’

Stephen Christopher is suspended after picking up a red card against Cabinteely on July 7.

Jason Abbott

The cheque of €500 was presented to St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday evening at the Community Centre. It was part of the proceeds from the Centre’s ‘Christmas Variety Concert’. John Coleman, Chairman of the Cobh Community Centre, thanked all the groups that performed at the concert last December, including nearby colleges St. Mary’s National School, Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh and Scoil Iosaef. Members of the Fundraising Committee – Manager, Gwen O’Halloran, Majella Smith, Martin O’Leary and Catherine Jefferson – also expressed their appreciation for the spirited and uplifting performances that were given last December by the Children’s Theatre, the Cope Foundation Day Unit, Pop & Rock and the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir. Thanking the Cobh Community Centre, Liz O’Driscoll and Aine O’Regan from St. Vincent de Paul said, “Our charity receives much focus around Christmas time, which is a great thing, but our work is ongoing, year-round. Therefore, donations at this time of year are especially important to us.”

The Chairman used the presentation of the cheque to St. Vincent de Paul to announce ambitious plans to increase the usage of the Centre’s many and varied facilities. John noted, “Cobh Community Centre has great potential for hosting a variety of both community and commercial activities as well as training sessions. We offer convenience plus first-class facilities. That’s a package that’s hard to top! We are also constantly expanding and upgrading our classes and events. So, there is something here for everyone in the Cobh community…the Centre literally does what it says on the tin!”
