Club Notes – Sept 1st 2014

Senior Championship 

Our seniors have reached the senior football championship quarter-final following their victory over Cuchullains in Virginia on Saturday last. After leading narrowly at half time our players performed well in the second half, stretched their lead and ran out deserving winners.  Well done to all concerned. Comhghairdeas. 

Minor Championship

Hard luck to our minors who were defeated by Bailieboro in their championship encounter in Terry Coyle Park on Tuesday evening last. This was a game where Bailieboro’s ability to convert their possession into scores was the deciding factor. We had much of the play throughout the game but an obsession with trying to score goals when points were on offer rendered our task unnecessarily more difficult. Hopefully our youthful team will have learned valuable lessons from this game. Well done to our players, the vast majority of whom are under-age for minor football next year. 

Under-8s/Under-10s 

Our under-8s and under-10s travelled to Arvagh on Saturday last for a series of games. Both sides gave an impressive display of gaelic football skills. Well done.

Under-14 

Best of luck to our under-14s who meet Kingscourt in the first round of the championship.

John Fee Day 

Our annual John Fee Day will take place in Terry Coyle Park on Saturday 20 September. There will be many underage games for boys and girls as well as lots of fun activities for young and old.

Hard luck to our minors who were very narrowly defeated by Naomh Bríd (Drumalee/Redhills/Butlersbridge) on Tuesday last in Drumalee in a very entertaining and sporting game of the highest standard.

Club Notes – Aug 11th 2014

Girls’ Football 

Well done to our under-13 girls’ team who won the division three title on Sunday last by defeating Bailieboro in Ballymachugh. Our girls, though playing against the breeze, built up a lead by half time through some opportunist scores from their forward line. However, they had to withstand some strong pressure from Bailieboro in the second half. Their defence stood firm to ensure a deserved victory. Congratulations to all the panel and all the team mentors. Comhghairdeas.

Club Notes – July 28th 2014

Senior Championship

 Well done to our senior team who defeated Gowna in the senior championship first round in Bréifne Park on Friday evening last. The first half was a low-scoring affair but the Gaels raced into a lead in the early stages of the second half. Gowna responded and decreased the deficit. A late burst saw us through by four points.

Intermediate Championship

 Hard luck to our intermediate team who battled all the way but ultimately had to give way to a stronger and more mature Cootehill team, billed by many as one of the favourites to win the title.

Under-12 Boys

 Our under-12s met Drumlane in Milltown recently in the summer league. Again they gave a battling display despite being short some players because of holidays. A stronger finish ensured that the home side came away with the spoils.

Minor Championship 

Our minors will play Naomh Bríd(Redhills/Butlersbridge/Drumalee) in the first round of the minor championship in Redhills on Tuesday 19 August at 7.30pm.

Other Cavan Gaels players on the panel are Jermaine O Rourke and Sebastian Darriba. The team coach is Andy McGovern. Comhghairdeas do gach duine a ghlac páirt ann.

Club Notes – July 21st 2014

We met Kingscourt in the senior league on Sunday morning last. From the start the visitors were more motivated and soon raced into a lead which they never relinquished. We had our purple patches but did not consistently sustain our efforts.

Under-16 

Our under-16s hosted Southern Gaels (Lacken-Gowna) on Thursday last in the championship. This was a well-contested game. We were hampered by the absence of a number of key players. The visitors ended up deserving winners.

Congratulations to our under-13s who recently kept up their winning ways by defeating Drumgoon at home and Killeshandra away. Comhghairdeas.

Sympathy 

Our sympathy is extended to the wife and son of Alan Coyle and to the extended Coyle family on the recent sudden death of the former Cavan Gaels player.

Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

We defeated Coole-Whitehall (Westmeath) in the semi-final and Moyne-Templetouhy (Tipperary) in the final: Frank Ward, Conor Rabbitt, Enda King, Fergal Brady, Fionán Coyle, Eamonn Reilly(capt), Clive Lowry, Sean Reilly, Gavin Duffy, Shane Gunning, Cormac Dunne, Damian Farrell, Nicholas Walsh, Cian Elliott, Niall Collins, Alan Coyle, Noel Mooney, John Murray, John Gurhy, Karl Donohoe, Seanie Johnston, Philip Galligan, Jonathan Talbot.

Under-12 

In the summer league, our under-12s are in the same division as Castletara, Denn, Knockbride, Drumlane, Mullahoran, Butlersbridge and Dernacrieve Gaels. We played an away game against Mullahoran on Monday evening last. This was a very competitive game with both sides level entering the last minutes of the game. The hosts registered the decisive scores on the cusp of full time to run out narrow winners. Well done to all our players for their commendable endeavours.

Goalkeeping Camp 

A goalkeeping camp took place in Terry Coyle Park on Friday last, facilitated by the current Tyrone goalkeeper Niall Morgan. The clinic covered the following:  warm-up, positioning, handling, kicking, shot stopping and all the other roles of a modern goalkeeping. That includes free-taking! The first camp took place from 10am-12 and the second from 1pm-3. Over thirty goalkeepers took part in the camp and they were very impressed by the camp contents provided by Niall Morgan.
