We played our first game in the 12-a-side Minor Football League/Championship on Wednesday night last. Away to Glenville this was a close game for most of the hour. Points from Stephen Pratt and Daniel Dooley saw us level 0-2 each after the first quarter. A goal for Glenville then put daylight between the sides. Further points from Daniel Dooley (free) and Jason Pratt saw us 1-5 to 0-5 behind at half time. A good point from Jason Mannix left just a goal between the sides early in the second half. Glenville however then got well on top and scored 6 points while we just got one back from Jason Mannix to leave the final score Glenville 1-11 Bride Rovers 0-6. A feature of the game was the excellent display of Vincent O’Keeffe in goal.
Team: V O’Keeffe, J Kearney, M Kearney, B Collins, E Collins, S Pratt, D O’Brien, J Mannix, J Pratt, S Boyce, K Kearney, D Dooley.

We are due to play our first game in the Hurling competition on this Thursday night April 12th when we are away to Aghada at 7pm., but it is likely that this game may be cancelled, if so there will be minor hurling training at 7pm.
