Academy Report  

The Academy (age groups u/6 to u/10) is back in full swing. It has taken a few weeks for things to settle down due to increased numbers across all age groups but we're getting there!

The kids have been practising their dribbling skills these first few weeks and have had a go at the "Scissors Dribble", "Okocha Rollover" and "Maradona Spin". Thankfully no coaches were injured demonstrating these tricks !!!!!!

The under 10's have been busy since early September playing 7-a-side games on Sundays with clubs from around Cork as well as having their usual Saturday morning coaching so huge credit to the coaches and players for their continued commitment and efforts.

The under 8's face Riverstown in 5-a-side games at the end of October and games will also soon be arranged for the under 7's and 9's.

Just a reminder that the club shop is open on Saturdays from 11am to 12.30pm at the AstroTurf.



SPRINGFIELD RAMBLERS' ACADEMY ROUND-UP 2014-2015

The under 8's, 9's and 10's have been playing in the Cork Schoolboys' Small Sided Games fixtures since April with the teams coming up against the likes of Carrigaline, Riverstown and Midleton.  The under 8's and 9's play 5v5 games and under 10's 9v9, and by all accounts our players are improving game by game.
 
The Academy's youngest group, the under 6's, played their first small sided games against Douglas Hall in early May and faced them again last Saturday morning when both teams reached the final of the Watergrasshill blitz. The young Cobhites emerged victorious after a tough but entertaining game, winning 2-0.

The under 7's recently hosted Midleton for small sided games and followed this up last weekend by alsoplaying in the annual blitz in Watergrasshill.
 
It will be a quiet couple of months at the "Astro" as the season comes to a close although the club willhost an FAI Summer Soccer School from the 6th to 12th of July for kids aged between 6 and 14 (seewww.summersoccerschools.ie).

Well done to the Springfield Ramblers Girls U8 & U10 teams who participated in their first blitz last Saturday.
Looking forward to the next one already.

Under 9s v Corkbeg Friendly
Sunday witnessed the first of many friendly visits when Corkbeg U9 came to play Springfield Ramblers U9. Both teams put on an impressive display of football for the proud parents and family who came to watch. We were delighted to see that all of the hard work put in during training resulted in some great passing, quick defending and clever use of space. All players gave 100% but special mention goes to Jake Orgi who made some fantastic passes, Aaron Murphy who covered a lot of ground and was also involved in some great attacking moves. Evan Sloane defended well with great calmness and control. Cain Scriven and Eoghan Casey also made some key interceptions. So well done everybody for a great performance.



Academy start up their new season!

The newest additions to the Springfield Ramblers F.C. Academy have already started honing their skills. Fun games and activities for children born in 2008 will continue to take place every Saturday (12noon-1pm) in the clubs AstroTurf facility within John Murphy Memorial Park.

Exeter Star's End Of Season Boost For U8s

The Springfield Ramblers FC Academy u8 players have, over the last couple of months, been enjoying putting their efforts into a Small Sided Games season which gave many of the group their first taste of game like experiences.


The players have acquitted themselves admirably throughout and whilst always striving to perform to the best of their abilities, they have been equably as keen in taking to the idea of enjoyment and participation being the overall most important theme at this stage of their development.


The group and their coaches were fortunate and happy to welcome back a former player recently in the shape of John O'Flynn. The Cobh born striker is currently playing with Exeter City FC in the south of England and was generous enough of his time to attend a coaching session where he shared some of his tips and experiences with the next wave of local talent.


Considering John has went from playing his schoolboy football with Springfield FC to playing the game professionally in England, whilst appearing for Ireland a u21 level along they way, will surely help the youngsters understand a little more about the opportunities that are available for players who want to progress within the world of sport.


Small Sided Games Round-Up 05/06 May 2012

10G3

Blarney United v Springfield Ramblers City

Springfield Ramblers City played away at Blarney United on Friday 4th of May at 6pm. The game started very well with both teams playing some lovely passing football, and a clearance from Ramblers defence made its way to Ryan Kenny in midfield who put a lovely pass through to our striker Josh Crone and with a good low shot put us one up. Blarney came back at us and within a minute were level with a strike low into our goal . The second period was the same with both teams putting some very good passing moves together and good saves from the two keepers kept the sides level going into the final fifteen.The football was used very well up to the final whistle with both teams pushing on to try get a winner but it was not to be and the two teams shook hands at the end to applause from the coaches
of the two teams.

10G1

Corinthian Boys v Springfield Ramblers

A tremendous game of football took place on Friday night at Corinthians Park between Corinthians and Ramblers. Even though the game finished nil nil the game was full of excitement from start to finish.

The game started brightly with Corinthians pouring forward in an attempt to take an early advantage however Springfield defended their goal very strongly with both the midfield and defensive lines linking up extremely well. As the first period came to an end the Corinthians team knew they were in a game as the Springfield front line looked for the opening goal.

The second period of the game was very well contested with both sides coming close to taking the lead however the closest either side got was a strike from a Corinthians striker which rebounded off the the Springfield bar.
The final period saw wave after wave of Springfield attack however the game finished with both goals intact.

10G1

Springfield Ramblers V Carrigaline Utd

An excellent game of football took place last Sunday evening at Pat O'Brien park between Springfield Ramblers and Carrigaline Utd.

In the early stages of the game Carrigaline got quickly into their stride and Springfield had to be very resolute in defence to repel a series of strong attacks. During this period of pressure a Carrigaline forward unleashed a blistering shot that was destined for the top corner of the Springers net only for Tony to spring like a cat to push the shot around the post.

This save stirred the Ramblers team in to life and some excellent interplay between Josh, Tom H, Kieran and Keelan nearly brought a breakthrough goal.
Just as it was starting to look like Springfield's pressure would bring a lead goal, a quick counter attack by Carrigaline resulted in a shot that ended up in Springfield's goal following a cruel deflection.

The game settled into a period of end to end play with Dave H and Philippe defending very well at one end of the pitch while Dylan and David T were going close at the other end.
From a well taken corner in the final period Carrigaline scored a second against the run of play. Springfield through caution to the wind in the last few minutes and were rewarded when a sweeping move involving Tom H and Tom R resulted in Ryan driving a low shot across the keeper and into the Carrigaline net.
Although Springfield pressed hard to find what would have been a deserved equaliser they were beaten by the referees watch.

Small Sided Games Round-Up 21/22 April 2012

9G8

Springfield Ramblers United v Rockmount Celtic

Another very solid & impressive performance from every player on the panel. SRU had a very strong first 15 mins and were outstanding for the 2nd 15 mins. The lads tired a bit in the final 15 mins but they kept up their performance until the final whistle. Scorers Harry Danaj, Adam Hastings & Alex Kirk.

8G1

Springfield Ramblers v Corinthian Boys

The lads played very well, were well on top for the first 15 minutes they played some great football with some excellent passing, everyone of the ten players played extremely well and as coaches they were an absolute pleasure to watch today

Small Sided Games Round-Up 14/15 April 2012

10G3

Springfield Ramblers City v Leeside Knockraha

A good match was played out between both sides. All players gave 100% with good passing, strong defending and sound goal keeping.

9G8

Mallow United v Springfield Ramblers United

A very impressive performance from every player for Springfield Ramblers Utd's U9s against Mallow on Saturday. Every one gave their best and it was a great team effort. Scorers: Harry Danaj & Adam Hastings.

Small Sided Games Round-Up 07/08 April 2012

10G1

Midleton v Springfield Ramblers

A disappointing match was played out at Midleton’s Knockgriffin Park on Monday evening.
Midleton proved to be the more clinical of the two teams in a lacklustre game. For the second week running the Ramblers team found themselves behind by two goals by the end of the first period, however, on this occasion they were unable to make a breakthrough to get themselves back into the game.

Two more soft goals were conceded in the second period as Midleton pushed on to close the game out.
The Springfield Ramblers team had only pride to play for in the final period with the four goal deficit too large a gap to fill with only 15 minutes remaining on the clock. Having said that, the final period proved to be the brightest part of the match for Ramblers with Josh Crone and Eoghan Kidney both going close to reducing the margin after some good build up play from the two Toms, Hurley and Ring. Unfortunately the Midleton goal remained intact and the game finished four nil.
The team and coaches were obviously upset at the result especially following their very good display the previous week against Corinthians, however, this game and performance are now history and the team will focus fully on next weeks opposition.

9G8

Avondale Panthers v Springfield Ramblers United

This was another outstanding performance from Springfield Ramblers Utd away to Avondale Panthers last Saturday. Great game played by both sides. No score.

10G2

Springfield Ramblers United v Corinthian Boys A

This match was played on a bigger pitch than the lads are used to but it would be unfair to blame the pitch.

The game started off evenly balanced with Corinthians going 1-0 up in the first 15mins after a bad bobble tricked the fullback and the centre forward converted well.

Springfield Ramblers did not compete in all areas of the pitch in the second 15mins with Corinthians going 2-0 up. This continued into the third 15mins with another goal scored by Corinthians to take the match 3-0.

Callouts for Springfield were Ben Barrett in goals who kept the score lower than what it might have been and to Jordan
Doyle who competed and worked hard throughout the game.


10G3

Fermoy v Springfield Ramblers City

A very good game of football was played between Fermoy and Springfield Ramblers on Saturday in Fermoy. From the start both teams got stuck in with some very good passing moves creating scoring chances and good saves on both goals. In midfield there was very good link up play between Tom Ring and Ryan Kenny in the first fifteen minutes.

Springfield Ramblers came out the second fifteen in much the same way passing very well with strikers Sam Fashola and Eoghan Kidney coming close to scoring on three occasions. We also defended well when we needed to through out the game with good teamwork from fullbacks Hugh Scannell and Tony Lynch, with David Hughes commanding the centre very well.

The sides were still level starting the last fifteen when a ball brought out of our own box landed at the feet of Kieran Long just outside the Fermoy penalty area and he hit a great shot in on goal which the Fermoy keeper could not hold.

Fermoy pushed on for an equaliser for the last five minutes and if it was not for the fantastic display in goal of the Springfield Ramblers keeper Jack Hallahan who pushed a great strike over the bar they would have levelled .

Springfield Ramblers held out to win one nil with a great team performance by every player and a very enjoyable game to watch.


Small Sided Games Reports 31 Mar/ 01 Apr

U10G2

Mallow v Springfield Ramblers United

A great game of football was played between Mallow and Springfield Ramblers United in St Gobnaits Park, Mallow on Sunday 1st April at 4pm. The first fifteen minutes were evenly shared with both Springfield and Mallow passing the ball really well, the second 15 carried on the same theme with Mallow going into a 1 – 0 lead after a corner was deflected into the Springfield goal by an unaware Springfield fullback.Springfield dominated the last 15 minutes and on another day would have been comfortable winners. The ever alert Ben Barrett made a great save with 5 mins to go.

The team performance was excellent overall, with special mention to Ryan Cronin-Moran, David Sloane and Fionn Duggan.

Great support from all travelling fans!

U10G1

Springfield Ramblers v Corinthians Boys

The Small Sided Games League began last Sunday for the Springfield Ramblers 10 G1 team with a tough examination against a very well organized and capable Corinthians side.

The visitors started brightly bringing some fine saves from Ramblers keeper Tony Lynch as well as driving the ball against the home teams cross bar in the opening minutes. As the first period of the match progressed the Springfield Ramblers team began to find their feet and started to take the game to Corinthians , however, with a few minutes to the break the Ramblers defence failed to clear the ball following a Corinthians corner and the ball was swept into the goal.

The second period of the game began with Ramblers coming close as striker Johsua Crone unleashed a shot that hit the Corinthians post with their keeper well beaten. Ramblers were well on top now however, against the run of play the visitors took a 2 nil lead as their striker hit a terrific shot across keeper and into the top corner of the net.

The goal spurred the Springfield team on and they continued to press for a reply. Following a great bit of interplay in the middle of the park Philippe O’Sullivan played in Joshua Crone whose shot could only be parried by the Corinthians keeper but Ryan Kenny was on hand to shoot past the keeper to reduce the deficit to one.

Minutes later it was all square following an excellent defence splitting one two between Kealan McEniry and the industrious Tom Hurley who slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the Corinthians net.

Just before the end of the second period the Ramblers keeper, Tom Ring, made a terrific close range triple save to ensure the sides went into the final period level.

The final period was end to end stuff with the Springfield defence being well marshaled by Scott Walsh and David Hughes while at the other end both Kieran Long and Kane O’Keeffe both came close to putting Ramblers into the lead. However, with just five minutes left on the clock Corinthians took a surprise lead with a cruel deflection from a Springfield defender following a corner.

Ramblers laid siege to the Corinthians goal for the last few minutes and looked to have salvaged a well deserved draw when a dipping shot from Philippe O’Sullivan looked destined for the top corner only for the Corinthians keeper to pull off a superb finger tip save to keep his goal intact and ensure that Corinthians held on for the win.

Based on the teams’ performance Ramblers should feel proud of their efforts and know if they keep the same attitude and energy their first win is not far away. Well done lads!!

U10G3

Springfield Ramblers City v Blarney United

With a very unbalanced team on Sunday we played Blarney United and from the start we were under pressure going three goals down in the first fifteen minutes. We came out for the second fifteen playing much better and a great run from Eoghan Kidney from his own half produced a great
goal which he deserved with his non stop running and tackling right through the game. We gave away a fourth goal just before the whistle went and played the last fifteen pinned in our own half losing another two goals bringing the final score to 6-1 to Blarney. Taking the positives from the game we had good displays from Evan Murphy in defence, Sam Fishola and Jordan Dunphy in Midfield and the endless running of Eoghan Kidney as well in Midfield.

Midleton Bears v Springfield Ramblers D

Well done to the lads who had a great win in Midleton today. Goals were scored by Joseph Whittle, Darragh Heelin & Luke Hamilton. It was a well fought game & the lads from Cobh were fantastic, it was a very warm day & the lads coped well with the heat on & off the pitch.

U8 Springfield Ramblers News

Following a comfortable away win to Midleton the lads went on to lose their first game of the season at home to Blarney. They got themselves back on track with a very good away win to Rockmount & most recently was a very tough away fixture to Leeds. In this game they showed some great character to come from behind twice and win the game. While this team play some great attacking football the foundation of the team is the defence of Marc Jones, Morgan Dillion Hylton & Rowland Nsubuca who have been outstanding all season. Keep up the great work to all!


Sun 18th April

Under 8 League

Springfield Ramblers 3 Leeds 1

The team started this game very brightly & created some very good chances in the opening 15 minutes but were unlucky not to finish them. Morgan Dillion Hilton & Marc Jones kept the Leeds chances to a minimum at the back & after Kyle Furmedge made a critical save the team finally broke the dead lock with a fine strike from Evan Roche. Leeds leveled the game within two minutes of the restart but with Tom Gill & Nathan O'Connell in midfield taking control of the game they went on to finish strongly with another 2 goals. This was a fine team performance a pleasure to see some great passing by all the lads. Thanks to Leeds for a great game & we wish them every success with their remaining games.

Sun 11th April

Under 8 League

Springfield Ramblers v Rockmount

This was a good start to the league for Springfield Ramblers FC with a great team performance. With Tom Gill making some great saves between the posts, Morgan Dillon Hilton had yet another outstanding game at the back which gave the lads the platform to go on & win the game comfortably with goals from Alex McCarthy, Ciaran Griffin, Evan Roche, Nathan O'Connell, Marc Jones & Kyle Furmedge. Thanks to Rockmount for coming to Cobh for the game & we wish them all the best in their remaining matches.

Under 9 League

Springfield Ramblers v Temple 10th April 2010.

This was a very frustrating match for both parents and coaches to watch, for by the end of the first fifteen minutes we had had umpteen one on one goal chances only to be thwarted by the opposition keeper or to see our efforts just barely go past the posts and crossbar. Cian O'Mahony, Adam Delaney, Conor Walsh and Cíaran Fleming had so many chances to put us in an unreachable lead which any other day would have seen them go in the back of the net, but unfortunately not this day.

The breakthrough finally came just before the end of the first fifteen minutes after Springfield Ramblers put together a string of seven passes from our goalie Oisin Cronin to Karilos to Sean Damery to Adam Delaney to Cian O'Mahony to Cíaran Fleming who laid on a lovely pass for Conor Walsh to bury the ball into the bottom left hand corner of the opposition’s net with his weaker right foot.

Their goals stemmed from a lack of concentration on our part as we failed to clear our lines properly which led to us losing our first away game of the season. But the lads never gave in and kept fighting until the end but were unable to convert our numerous chances to make this a win. But two really good goals from Conor Walsh and Adam Delaney and constant threats and running from Cíaran Fleming, Cian O'Mahony, Conor Walsh, Joe Kahn Moss, and strong defending from Adam Delaney, Sean Damery, Karilos, Sean Manley Kelly and dependable keeping from Oisin Cronin kept us in the game. Temple only had six or seven chances in the whole game one of which was a penalty while Springfield Ramblers had so many it was hard to keep track of the final count.

This might not have been the perfect result but it wasn't for the want of trying. This never say die attitude will surely make Springfield Ramblers stronger and a very hard team to beat in future games as we get back other members of the team who were missing for this one. So as for now it's upwards and onwards.

Under 9 League
Springfield Ramblers 1-6 Temple Kop
This was our first league game of the season which we were beaten by a more physical and stronger side then ourselves. That said we played with great heart and determination throughout this game. Cian had a great game in goal making some great saves that kept the score line down, with our defence of Josh, Jamie, Olan and Kealan closing down as best we could and our midfield of Con, Sam and Courtney chasing every ball, to the tireless running of Luke up front. Even though we lost this game, we played well and tried our hardest which was great to see. Also well done to Luke for his goal inspired by Lionel Messi!



Mon 5th April

Under 9s

Springfield Ramblers v Corinthians

This was game of three periods of fifteen minutes. Each with something different to offer.
The first fifteen saw the home side start very slowly with only three shots on goal two of which brought fine saves from the away teams keeper and the third was a shot from Conor Walsh on his weaker foot which just narrowly missed the post. The opposition in turn converted their chances to go into the first break leading.

The weather up by the Water-tower pitch was blowing a gale which in fairness did effect the game for both teams.
The second fifteen saw the home team get off to a better start and soon had Corinthians on the back foot which had all their team defending from the six yard box for most of this period. We saw shots from Ciaran Fleming, Conor Walsh, and mazy runs from Sean Damery, Oisin Cronin, Ciaran Fleming, and Conor Walsh whose shots tested the Corinthians keeper's reflexes with last minute saves, or at the last moment the wind would send the ball the wrong side of the post. On the rare occasion that they managed to break from their goal they took advantage of our attack and broke quickly and scored against the run of play.

The final fifteen minutes saw Springfield Ramblers lay siege to the Corinthians goal only to concede from another counter attack. The pressure didn't stop from the home side till the final whistle but despite some heroic keeping from Karolis and some solid defending from Adam, and Cian and the rest of the team we couldn't keep a clean sheet but with the type of grit and determination displayed by Oisin Cronin, Sean Damery, Ciaran Fleming and Conor Walsh it won't be long before the lessons of this game can be learned and put to good use will be a stepping stone to a brighter future for a team constantly learning and improving.


Springfield Ramblers 0-4 Corinthians

This game was not all one sided as the score line might suggest, we gave a very good account of ourselves right from the off and were unlucky to go in 1 down after the first 15mins. However with the wind behind them in the 2nd 15mins, Corinthians scored 2 goals from free-kicks and 1 from a corner. That said, in the last 15mins we laid siege to their goal but it is was just one of those days with us hitting the crossbar 3 times. Throughout the team from Cian to Con and Colm in defence to Kealan, Jamie, Courtney and Sam in midfield and Luke up front, everyone played with good heart and determination which was great to see. Roll on the league next weekend, and again well done all involved.


Sun 28th March

Springfield Ramblers v Tramore of Douglas Sunday 28th March 2010.

The two Springfield Ramblers under 9 teams played two very hard fought matches against Tramore of Douglas. One lost 4 - 1 and the other 3 - 2. The latter as a whole put in a really spirited display and fought tooth and nail for everything which unfortunately did not result in a home win. A goal apiece from Olan Farrell and Ciarán Fleming saw both teams go into the final fifteen minutes on equal terms at two all. Karolis did superb in goal pulling off some fine saves and when put up front worked very hard. The back line of Cian O'Mahony, Sean Damery, Killian Hackett and Sean Manley Kelly worked really hard and supported our attacks when possible and put in another good shift. The midfield of Adam Delaney, Olan Farrell and Conor Walsh all worked tirelessly and closed down the opposition at every opportunity. Conor Walsh did his best to bring the fight to Tramore by driving on from mid-field with Adam and Olan either side of him. At the same time we saw some great tackles and running from Conor and Olan and nice passing from Adam. Ciaran Fleming and Oisin Cronin never stopped running and took their shots where possible but unfortunately for them saw their efforts either saved or deflected by the uprights. Ciarán did great work up front and then again when he swapped position with Karolis to go in goal and pulled off some really good saves. Oisin put in a physical display of a good centre forward and never gave up but unfortunately we conceded a late goal to lose 3 - 2. An unfortunate result for an ever improving team.

Academy Under 8s

Springfield Ramblers U8's were unlucky to lose this game as they were only one goal down going into the last 15 minutes. Tramore Ath showed their strength in going on to win comfortably in the end. Cobh fought hard and created some good chances but were unlucky not to finish them. There were outstanding performances by Morgan Dillon Hilton at the back, Tom Gill & Evan Roche doing trojan work in midfield & Nathan O’Connell & Ciaran Griffin creating some fine chances. This was a good physical game that will stand to the lads going into the league in two weeks time. Well done to all and keep up the hard work!



Sun 21st March

Both Springfield Ramblers under 9 teams won against Rockmount on Sunday 21st. One team winning 3 - 2 and the other winning 4 - 3 with some great play and running from mid-field from Conor Walsh, Sean Damery and Cian O'Mahony while the back line was governed by Killian Hackett and Sean Marley Kelly and in goal Oisin was ever dependable and a class apart as he managed to keep the the shooting to a minimum with a never say die attitude from the whole team brought four fine goals from Adam Delaney, Olan Farrell and two from Ciaran Fleming. All in all capped another great display from an ever improving team.

Springfield Ramblers beat Rockmount last Sunday 21st March 3 - 2. Having being 2 goals down going into the final 3rd, Springfield turned it around to win 3 - 2 in a close and hard fought match. Goals coming from Jamie Gilmartin, Con Lynch and an OG. Well done to the team for a great result. Looking forward to more of the same this Sunday when we play Tramore!


Sat 27th February

U8 Friendly

Rockmount 1 Springfield Ramblers 2

This was a great away win for the U8's who went 1 nil down against the run of play heading into the last 15 minutes. After this the team put in a strong performance to score 2 fine goals. They could have won this game by more only for some great saves made by the Rockmount keeper. Well done to all!
