Premier Division League Cup Semi Final

Glin Rovers 2 - 0 Broadford Utd


Scorers: Ajay Behan & Sheagh O Connor 


An early goal in each half saw the lads advance to the 2022/23 Premier Division League Cup Final where Rathkeale stand in their way of first silverware since 2016.


The first decent opportunity of the game saw Glin take the lead. Tommy & Jack’s early foot hold in this game was the backbone to this goal. Great movement saw Paul develop the play forward, a defence cutting pass by the eagle eyed Jack Sheahan played a brilliant through ball to Ajay, who advanced on goal, with a wonderful strike, the ball nestled into the bottom corner for a well taken goal by the youngster. 


Ajay was the thorn in the Broadford defence until unfortunately injury forced the first half goal hero off, to be replaced by his brother Zach. 


Glin continued to press in search of a second and came close with chances from Shane, Paul and Tadgh. 


Broadford settled into the game and began to put some good moves together through their midfielder who was at the core of their chances, their efforts hit the cross bar and were inches wide for an equalising goal. The purple patch by Broadford was handled by the veteran Sean and the solid defence of Marty, James, Gary & Tadhg. 


On the resumption of the second half, the lead was doubled through Sheagh O’Connor. His in swinging corner caught the defence off guard and the ball crept past the keeper to the joy of the team.


The remaining half was nip and tuck with both sides creating a number of chances. Sean marshalled his defence who had to be at their very best to keep their 2-0 lead. On cold and miserable night Heart and Bravery was shown through out the game with their just award seen them claim a 2-0 win.


A very good team performance from 1-16 being at their best to claim this win.

A great nights work by Ambrose, Anto and all the lads where they will return to Clounreask in search of silverware against a very much inform Rathkeale side.


Fixture to be confirmed in the coming days.


Team: Sean Lyons James Wallace, Martin Sweeney, Tadgh Culhane, Gary Culhane, Tommy Culhane, Jack Sheahan, Shane Culhane, Sheagh O’Connor Paul Sheahan & Ajay Behan.

Subs: Zach Behan, Brian O’Donovan, Jack Boland, Christy McSweeney & Garry Kelly.

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.
