The top of the table clash in Creeves Friday night was no means a classic but a war of attrition seeking out that opportunity that would be the difference.

Possession was limited on both sides with the hunger of aggression to break up play and attacks noted across the field.

Glin were the happier side at half time due to the chances created by the home side. Mike Stack was the busier of the keepers as he sought out another clean sheet. Mike got down quick to a number of ground shots and was brave in the aerial duels when Creeves sought out a goal from corners and throws. Credit to the defence and Mike, they cleared a series of balls launched into the 18 yard box which opened up counter attacks but we failed to trouble the Creeves keeper. Creeves closest chances were a header from the striker which he tipped off the cross bar and a long range strike that skimmed off the cross bar.

Glin took the game to Creeves in the second period, the intensity of the game was picked up with each and every player putting their bodies on the line for the cause. Glin’s attacks started with defence, Gary, Tadgh, Conor & James were immense seeking out possession and providing it to the midfield generals of Tommy & Brian. Paul, Jack, Ajay & Zach attacked with purpose & aggression seeking out that decisive goal.

Jack Sheahan put in a superb performance as a play marker for his attackers. He turned over possessions numerous times and covered every blade of grass.

With space opening up in the home side’s defence as the second half progressed, Glin were at their best. Ajay & Zach teamed up to get past the Creeves defence but the keeper held out their shots. As the 90mins loomed, Gary Culhane came closest with two cracking free kicks. The first saw a great save by the keeper, where he reacted quickly to save the rebound when the ball dropped to Zach yards from the line.
Gary’s second effort was cleared from the line where he got a second bite of the cherry, a rocket launcher of a half volley was inches wide of the top corner.

Glin didn’t give up after a number of good opportunities, they stuck with the task and were rewarded with the goal in the last minute. Tommy who was brilliant in midfield, picking out players in the better position, sought out Zach with a great through ball. The experience Zach showed with a great first touch, to develop his run one on one with the keeper. He showed great composure to finish the ball to the net for scenes of great excitement from players and supporters that travelled Friday night.  

Creeves heads didn’t drop who aimed to draw level in injury time, however the lads fought every aerial battle and possession to claim the 3 points after a titanic battle.

Glin are now 4 points clear at the top of the table with 2 games to go. Next up are Athea Friday night who will be arriving to Glin gunning for a win to stay in the Premier Division next season. Another battle awaits in Glin Friday night.

We thank all the supporters who turned out in big numbers last night which was noted by the players after the game. We hope more can support the team next Friday night.

Mike Stack, Conor Shine, James Wallace, Tadgh, Gary & Tommy Culhane, Brian Donovan, Jack Sheahan, Ajay Behan, Paul Sheahan, Zach Behan, James Broderick, Cian Culhane, Jack Boland, Johnny Sullivan,  Ger Rriordan, Aidan Mulvihill, Christy Sweeney & Sean Lyons.


Glin Rovers F.C. would like to offer its Sympathies to the Wallace Family on the passing of Michael Wallace, Clonlara, Co. Clare. May He Rest in Peace.

The work of Glin Rovers FC is based on the following principles that will guide the development of sport for young people in this club. Children and young people’s experience of soccer should be guided by what is best for the child or young person. The stages of development and the ability of the child should guide the types of activity provided within the club. Adults will need to have a basic understanding of the needs of young people, including physical, emotional and personal.

Integrity in relationships
Adults interacting with young people in soccer should do so with integrity and respect for the child. All adult actions in soccer should be guided by what is best for the child and in the context of quality, open working relationships. Verbal, physical, emotional or sexual abuse of any kind is unacceptable within soccer.

Quality atmosphere and ethos
Soccer for young people should be conducted in a safe, positive and encouraging atmosphere. A child centred ethos will help to ensure that competition and specialisation are kept in their appropriate place. Too often unhealthy competitive demands are placed on children too early and results in excessive levels of pressure on them and as a consequence, high levels of dropout from sport.


All children should be treated in an equitable and fair manner regardless of age, ability, sex, religion, social and ethnic background or political persuasion. Children with disability should be involved in sports activities in an integrated way, thus allowing them to participate to their potential alongside other children.

Fair Play
Fair play is the guiding principle of the Irish Sports Councils Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children's Sport. It states that “all children’s sport should be conducted in an atmosphere of fair play”. Ireland has contributed and is committed to the European Code of Sports Ethics, which defines fair play as: “much more than playing within the rules”.
It incorporates the concepts of friendship, respect for others and always playing with the right spirit. Fair play is defined as a way of thinking, not just behaving. It incorporates issues concerned with the elimination of opportunities, excessive commercialisation and corruption.
(European Sports Charter and Code of Ethics, Council of Europe, 1993).

A balanced approach to competition can make a significant contribution to the development of young people, while at the same time providing fun, enjoyment and satisfaction. Coaches/managers should aim to put the welfare of the child first and competitive standards second. A child-centred approach will help to ensure that competition and specialisation are kept in their appropriate place.
