GBC U13’s travelled to Piltown to play our final league game on 26th July. Again GBC got off to a poor start conceding 1-3 before we eventually got on the scoreboard after 15 minutes. Our backs began to get on top which allowed more possession for the forwards, both sides traded points for the remaining half . HT Score: Piltown 1-7, GBC 0-5. The 2nd half was evenly balanced when Piltown’s No.14 won possession on the edge of the square and sent an unstoppable shot to the net with 7 minutes remaining. At the other end Piltown’s keeper pulled off two point blank saves to deny us a goal. Overall Piltown were a stronger/balanced team and ran out deserving winners. FT Score: Piltown 2-13, GBC 0-11.

Round 4 of the Roinn B League saw Ggraigue Ballycallan take on Glenmore on Friday 12th in a sunny Tom Ryall Park. A minutes silence was impeccably observed prior to throw-in for the late Tom Brennan who’s nephew Martin plays with this team.
GBC started very well scoring 1-1 in the opening 5 minutes, a goal coming from Ben Young after a lovely handpass from Keelan Lynch. Glenmore responded with the next 3 points before Ben McEvoy won possession and crossed for midfielder Paidí Egan who raised the green flag to leave it GBC 2-1, Glenmore 0-3 after 15 minutes. Glenmore scored 2 points, before Ben Young buried a goal from 20 yards. Half Time GBC 3-2, Glenmore 0-6. Read more

Our under 10’s headed for Thomastown to take part in another blitz. We had a great group of girls ready to take part in the day.

It was an enjoyable morning for all.

Well done to our U12’s who had a very hard fought win over John Locke’s on Monday 8th July at home in the League. It was a very close game with neither team winning by much at any stage. The work rate and determination that the girls showed especially in the last 10 minutes was fantastic to see.
All players dug deep to come out with the win on a scoreline of 6-3 to 5-1. Thank you to all who came to support the girls, our next game is on 22nd July. Details to follow!
GBC U13’s played Mooncoin in Round 2 of the Roinn B League in Tom Ryall Park on Friday last 28th June. Again this young team came up against a bigger physical side but they refused to take a step back. Mooncoin opened with a pointed free but GBC responded with a well taken goal from Aidan Ging to go ahead early. It was end to end for most of the first half with both defence’s on top, in particular Ben McEvoy was excellent between the posts for GBC. After going 15 minutes without scoring, a late ’65 and a long range shot from No.6 Aidan Comerford dropped under the crossbar and gave GBC a lead 2-3 to 0-4 at Half Time. Read more
