Bride Rovers GAA Club notes and news round-up for the week.

November 8, 2018

Football Championship Postponed

Our Round Three East Cork Junior Football Championship game against Glenbower Rovers was postponed  from last Friday night. The game was  fixed for Ballynoe but we were not in a position to field a team due to a huge spate of injuries to players. Of the team that defeated Aghada in thee first round of the competition eight weeks ago nine players were unavailable. At the time of writing the game has not been fixed but with both clubs playing first round games in the Cork Senior Hurling championship in a little over two weeks a re-fixture at the end of May or early June would be welcome.

Glenbower Rovers are 2011 East Cork Champions and like ourselves would have several players on both junior football and senior hurling teams.

Junior Hurling Leagues

Our Junior Hurling teams have four fixtures coming up . On this Thursday night May 10th we are at home to Ballinacurra in the East Cork Division 3 HL Section 2. This is a game for our third team. Our First Junior Hurling Team are competing in the Cavanaghs of Fermoy Avondhu/ Imokilly JHL and have three fixtures. On next Tuesday May 15th we are away to Castlemartyr at 7.30. Four nights later on Saturday 19th we are at home to Cobh at 7.30.

On Saturday June the 2nd we are away to Russell Rovers at 7.15. 

Senior Hurling

With the Senior Championship tie against Erins Own just two weeks from next Sunday evening training continues but with so many walking wounded its difficult to make much real progress with preparations. The Erins Own game is fixed for Carrigtwohill.

IFC Game

Kildorrery overcame  Glanmire in Pairc na Bride in the first round of the Co IFC on Saturday night last. Thanks to the Club Members who were on duty to help with the running of the fixture which was refereed by Cathal Egan of Glen Rovers.

Ladies Senior League Final

Hard luck on the Rovers Senior Team who lost the County Senior League final to Gabriel Rovers on Sunday last in Castletownkenniegh. Just two points was the margin of defeat but it augurs well that the girls are well able to compete at this level.

Feile Semi Final

I was in Fermoy last Thursday night to witness a thrilling Feile Semi Final between our under fourteen hurlers and Ballygiblin. We were ahead by 5 points with time almost up but back came Ballygiblin to get a draw. In the end after 70 minutes we lost by a goal. It was a great game but a very disappointing game to lose. On Monday at Ballinlough Ballygiblin Beat Nemo Rangers by 5  6 to 1   12 to win out the competition.
