Aghabullogue advance 

The Intermediate footballers of Aghabullogue advanced to the fourth round of the Cork County Intermediate football championship  after defeating Mitchelstown in a thriller of a game played in Mallow last Saturday. The boys were the underdogs going into the match having suffered defeat to the North Cork team last year by 5 points. Aghabulloge battled hard all day to see off the very fancied  Mitchelstown side.There were some very fine performances put in by all the players on this young Aghabullogue team. The boys now have a few months off to prepare for the next round and to plan a return to the county final that they last reached two years ago.
Youth Soccer awards

Killinardrish/Coachford schoolboys soccer club recently held their Easter draw and medal presentation night in O’Riordans Bar Coachford. The draw was most successful and brought in much needed funds for the club. Liam Casey in his address on the night thanked all those who sponsored prizes for the draw, all those who sold the tickets and stressed his thanks to the public who continually support their fundraising efforts so generously and also Pat O’Riordan for hosting the event..

 With respect to the medal presentation to the successful U13 Div 1 champions from 2014 he relived the pivotal game last season which he felt had spurned the boys on to the title. It was against Buttevant away and it was a game which they had to get something from as they went into it a point behind Buttevant and both with four games left. As always against Buttevant it was a tough uncompromising game and when they went 1-0 down with ten minutes left it looked like curtains but when the managers made some substitutions and brought Tadhg O’Brien-Bradley out of goals and put Ardghal O Buachalla in, they began to exert more pressure on their opponents but were vulnerable on the break. It was from one of those breaks that Ardghal made a brilliant save and from the resultant break upfield, we won a free kick on the right hand side of the box. Tadhg floated it in and it was half headed clear to the edge of the box where our substitute Josh Grimes volleyed home to the back of the net. It was a knockout blow to Buttevant who fell away for their remaining games and our boys went on to win all of theirs to win the title and become the youngest squad in the clubs history to be promoted to premier grade level. .As well  as congratulating the squad as a whole Liam also went on to praise the efforts of some individuals within the squad who were part of the Cork Schoolboys League squad who won Munster and All Ireland medals aU13. Adam Murphy and Luke Casey continue to be part of the  Cork schoolboys representative team this season at U14 grade and are currently on a tour to Germany, Belgium and Holland  as part of their build  up to the Kennedy cup finals in Limerick in June. He wished them all the best as well as Cialan O’Sullivan who is part of this years Cork U13 squad. At the end of the medal presentation the player of the year was announced. This was voted for by the players and coaches in secret ballot and after a tight vote Adam Murphy was chosen.
