First Year


Pictured below are this years First Year Soccer team with their coach Mr. Heverin.


Our first year soccer players had a very productive school year. Having been placed in a very competitive group they successfully negotiated their way to the top of the table with wins over Merlin College, Colaiste an Eachreidh, Athenry and a draw with Seamount, Kinvara.

As group winners our boys had home advantage in the quarter final meeting with St Brendan’s, Belmullet and on March 10th played a four goals to nil victory over the Belmullet men. This quarter final win set up a rematch with Seamount, Kinvara in the semi-final in Glenamaddy on the 19th of March. Confidence was high as this was a team we should have beaten in the group stages but a tired and injury struck side never looked like winning on that day and bravely fought to the bitter end.

Glenamaddy CS First Years were crowned Connacht Champions on Wednesday 23rd with an impressive win over Charlestown in the final.

Glenmaddy CS had to get over the obstacle of Grange in the semi final before they could think of glory in the final. This match preceeded the final on the same day in the same venue. Glenamaddy proved too strong for their Sligo opponents. With a final scoreline of 6 - 1, we eased our way into the final against a strong Charlestown team.

Glenamaddy CS failed to have it all their own way in the first half of the final and they ended the first half behind 2 - 1. However, fresh from the teamtalk, the boys soon got back to level pegging and there was no looking back from there. Jack Divilly marshelled his defence well allowing very little through. J. Egan, Anthony Feeney and Diarmuid Lee all gave great performances as Glenamaddy powered ahead in the match. By the time the final whistle was blown the scoreline stood at 7 - 4, a convincing win and celebrations all round.

Congrats also to Mr. Francis and Mr. Heavy on masterminding the succes from the line. Lets hope there will be many more titles in the future years.

Glenamaddy CS also put out a B team on the day. They drew with their opponents Charlestown with a scoreline of 1-1. Best on the day for this team were Thomas O'Toole in goal, Dean Carton in defence and Peter Swift in the forwards.
