club notes

November 8, 2018


On a wet July evening Silverbridge hosted An Port Mor in Keeley Park. It was the home team who started the best and had five points on the scoreboard from B Maguire, R Griffin and L Campbell, before An Port Mor opened their account with a free in the 12th minute.  At this stage the visitors were coming more into the game and they scored another point in the 18th minute. A great counter attacking move resulted in a N Reel point but An Port Mor finished the half with two more points leaving the score 0-6 to 0-4 at half time. An port Mor closed the gap early in the second half with another pointed free but points from N Reel and L Campbell gave the Bridge a three point cushion. At  this point a couple of goal opportunities for the visitors went a begging and the home side  went on to control the closing stage of the match with the help of the introduction of fresh players from the bench. Although the team has played better in defeat this was a badly needed two points to keep the team in safe mid table position.

B Team

The B Team made the long  journey to Sarsfields on Wednesday night last to play in the first round of the All County B League. Sarsfields ran into an early lead of one goal and two points before T Mallie opened the visitors account with a well taken point. Sarsfield kept up the pressure and added a further two points before Silverbridge were awarded a penalty which C Traynor dispatched nicely to the corner of Sarsfields net. Sarsfield soon replied with a point but Silverbridge replied with three unanswered points from Connolly, Traynor  and young T McKenna to bring the half time scoreline to 1-7 visitors to 1-4. The second half was more evenly balanced with Silverbridge taking J Burns to the middle of the field, Jarlath scored a fine point whilst C Traynor struck another goal and a long distance point. The game ended   all square on a score line of Sarsfield 1-9 to Silverbridge 2-6. This was a good performance from an under strength Bridge team who meet Granemore in the next round at   Silverbridge on Wednesday next.


The Minors hosted Dromintee at home on Monday evening last and lost by five points but the score line doesn’t justify the game it was nip and tuck the whole game. In the first attack the Bridge scored a goal from T McKenna and went in at half time leading by a point. They were slow to start the second half and in this time Dromintee conceded 2-2 but the boys kept going and tried hard and were unlucky to have a share of the spoils. This was a good team performance.

Ladies Football

The senior ladies team played another of their re fixtures on Tuesday evening last, they where at home to Grange.  The home side started the brighter and played some nice football with some great long range scores.  Grange did fight back and got on the score board with a goal, it turned out to be there only score of the first half,  The home side came in leading with a score line of 2-08 to 1-0.  The Bridge came out fighting the second half and sealed the deal early on with two fine goals; although Grange did try hard they left themselves with too much to do on the night. The Bridge kicked some great scores in the closing ten minutes  and ended up convincing winners with a final score line of Silverbridge 5-13 v Grange 4-02. Well done girls another great team performance, Keep it going.
