THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES....
Photo from the Kiln last night
Mr Chairman, ladies and gentlemen. This is an honour that I will remember and cherish. My thanks to you all in the AUL committee.

I‘ve had many many enjoyable moments in the AUL and I must thank all the various committee members I’ve worked with over the years, not forgetting the likes of the late Paddy Barry and John O’Sullivan. While 31 years is quite a long spell, I have to point out that at least two of the AUL team, Tony Fitzgerald and Denis O’Driscoll, have been flying the flag for even longer.

Thanks to the ECHO for giving me the opportunity. I found out recently that I have worked under every Sports Editor that the Echo has ever had as Tim O’Brien, the gentleman that I started with, was its first Sports Editor. Then we moved on, working with great sports people such as Billy George who took us to colour, John Horgan and his 8 page Shoot, and now the fantastic John McHale.

Around this time 18 years ago, Tony Fitzgerald, Vince Cummins and myself met with Murphy’s on the subject of sponsorship. Things were getting bogged down in the detail until Jack Sheedy and Vince Giltinan arrived on the scene. For years afterwards, Jack took a personal interest in the partnership, in much the same way as Johnny Crowley does today.

As I said in the City Hall, the greatest satisfaction I get as I look back is the huge improvement in facilities. Keep the faith and keep up the good work.

Once again, thank you all very much and I’ll be seeing you at the various grounds over the season, starting with the opening of the splendid new Grattan Utd dressing room facility next Saturday.
--- Billy

TO YOUTH & U17 CLUBS

Kindly forward preferred day/night and kick off times if your team has the use of floodlights.

Tour of Ireland winner Downing comes off the top of Patrick's Hill on Sunday - hopefully we'll be watching football next Sunday!!

Youth Soccer by Tony Fitzgerald
The U17 and Youth League kick off postponed last week end will go ahead next week end with non society referees staffing games. We may have a reduced programme of matches as the number of games to be scheduled will depend on the number of FAI registered non society referees the league can call on.
The league received an entry of 28 Youth teams for the new season and with all matches postponed last week end because of the strike by referees 4 teams have withdrawn from the original entries and we now have 24 teams participating for the new season.
These teams will be divided into 2 leagues; Premier and 1st Division with 12 teams in each.
Premier League:
Avondale Utd, Carrigaline Utd “A”, Castleview, Cobh Ramblers, Cork City, Douglas Hall, Everton, Fermoy, Greenwood, LeesideKnockraha, Richmond, and Rockmount.
The winners of the Premier League should come from the big 3 of Carrigaline Utd “A”, Cobh Ramblers, and Cork City, but have no doubt the rest of the teams will not be in awe of them.
League 1:
Ballincollig, Bandon, Ballyvolane, Carrigaline Utd “B”, Innishvilla, Kanturk, Lakewood Ath, Midleton, Park Utd, Passage, Ringmahon Rangers, and Tramore Ath.
Very difficult to predict who will finish on top in League1 but taking last season’s U17 results into the equation I would expect Lakewood, Innishvilla and possibly Carrigaline Utd “B” to figure in the shake up for honours.
The 2 Leagues will have a double round with each team playing each other home and away.
All teams must provide a pitch to play their home games, if teams are unable to provide a pitch they will lose home advantage and games will be reversed to their opponent’s ground
The fixtures for week ending 30th August will be published on Wednesday’s Evening Echo and sent by e-mail to all clubs.
Kindly ensure your team is listed as this is the list of teams I am entering in the Munster & FAI Youth Cups. Any team not listed who have a Youth team kindly contact me by return.

AUL Fixtures Off:
All Murphy’s Irish Stout AUL Fixtures published on Monday’s Evening Echo and due to take place from Thursday 20th August to Tuesday 25th August inclusive are off due to the Cork Branch of the I.S.R.S. going on strike by withdrawing their services to staff matches.
No Friendly Games:

PRO - Cork AUL
Refs on strike NO MATCHES GOING AHEAD
From Tony Fitzgerald

Cork Youth Leagues Fixtures Cancelled:
Due to ISRS Cork branch going on strike by refusing to staff matches the Management Committee of the Cork Youth Leagues have decided to cancel the U17 and Youth League Cup competitions this season, so all published fixtures are cancelled.
No Friendly Games:
The committee are issuing a directive to every team in the league that friendly games must not take place during this strike. Sanctions will be imposed on any team who will be in breach of this directive.
Non Society Referees:
The management committee wish to state that if sufficient referees registered with the FAI who are not members of the Cork Branch of the I.S.R.S. are available that league matches will be arranged, as we are anxious to finish our season before the end of May because of players doing exams.

Macroom A.F.C Charity Soccer Blitz

On Saturday 15th of August, members and friends of Macroom Soccer Club put on a feast of football to raise money for Our Lady’s Children’s hospital in Crumlin.


Six teams took part in the adult blitz, with Wilton, Coachford, Ballyvolane and Droumree joining Macroom 1st and 2nd teams. The club would like to thank all clubs for giving up their time to take part in the blitz.


Wilton beat Ballyvolane in the final on penalties after a well contested game ended in a draw. Nicola O Sullivan, development executive of the Children’s Medical & Research Foundation Crumlin, presented the Kenny’s Jewelers trophy to the winning Wilton captain John Daly.


Also on the day, there was a schoolboy’s blitz, with four teams taking part. The four teams were made up of a combination of Macroom underage schoolboy’s teams, with ‘Team Dynamite’ the eventual winners. Also on the day there was a host of food stalls, bouncy castles and mini games to keep the crowd entertained. The club would like to express their gratitude to all volunteers, supporters and clubs for their support on the day.


The event was very successful and the day was enjoyed by all.
