Tinryland win Carlow Junior Football (B) Championship
Tinryland juniors lifted the clubs 4th trophy at adult level this year when comfortably accounting for Asca in the Co. J.F.C. (B) final at Dr Cullen Park on Sunday. Fielding a youthful team comprised of eight minors Tinryland survived an early Asca goal to run out easy winners by 1-13 to 1-4 at the finish.
As has been the case throughout the championship Paul Broderick was once again the star of the show scoring 9 points with his place kicking from dead balls once again a joy to watch. Playing against the wind in the first half Tinryland responded to that early Asca goal by scoring a cracking goal from Glen Doyle in the 6th minute and from then to the finish the boys in blue and white were never headed. At half time Tinryland led by 1-4 to 1-2 and after a strong team talk by manager Brian Doyle the team upped their game considerably in the second half. By the 43rd minute Tinryland had pulled 6 points clear after 3 further Broderick points and another from full forward Richard Whyte who worked very hard throughout the hour. Asca tried hard to reduce the defecit but Tinryland with wind advantage were gaining the upper hand
and the trophy was all but won by the 51st minute when veteran forward and captain Martin Doyle sent over a great point following a pass from his nephew Glen Doyle who was one of the stars on Sunday.
At the end Tinryland captain Martin Doyle was presented with the cup by Co. Board officer Pat Deering and the team and mentors adjourned to the clubhouse where at the victory meal club chairman Ned Deane congratulated the entire panel and the back up team of Brian Doyle, John Farrell and John Brennan.
Last Sundays win was down to a great team performance with goalkeeper David O’Neill who starred in St. Joseph’s cup win on Sunday morning steady as a rock throughout. The full back line of Peter Doran, Mark Townsend and Paul Haughney never put a foot astray while the half back line of Kevin O’Neill, Brian Byrne and David McDonough set up many attacks for the forward’s. Midfielders Mark Dempsey and Padraig Minnock put in trojan work during the hour while the half forward line of John Murphy, inspirational captain Martin Doyle and Glen Doyle were more than a handful for the Asca defence. The full forward line of Paul Broderick, Richard Whyte and Eddie Lyons was Tinryland’s trump card with the 5 subs introduced Shane Brown, Paul McGrath, Alan Nolan, Peter Scully and John Kelly also making a significant contribution to a great victory.
