Tubber – Erin Rovers Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 10:00

2002 was another year of disappointment when we lost the U14B Shield Final to Ballinamere/Durrow, but more disappointment was set to follow in the form of the Minor. In what was a wonderful weekend it was duly topped off with Shane Kelly being crowned the Skills Champion of the Tournament. In 2001 thanks to a "wildcard" we had the distinction of representing the county at the National File Finals in Kilsheelan, Co Tipperary where we reached the semi-finals. From 2002 to 2004 we reached the three County Minor A Finals, only to lose out on all occasions to Rhode ('02) and Tullamore in the other two.

Unfortunately 2005 also saw us defeated by Birr in the U12 County semi-final and since then matters on the playing field hasn't brought us too much silverware. Silverware was back in Tubber once again. In 2006 we did reach the Minor Quarter Final only to lose out to Kilcormac/Killoughey who that year reached the County Final, while it was in 2006 that we made our last final appearance when we lost to St Broughan's in the U16B Final. To those who had the vision of a Minor Club, our years of success are down to you and hopefully more and more years of success will come to us. 2005 was another great year for the club when we beat Birr by 1-12 to 2-3 in the U14B Final and Ferbane in the U16B Final by 1-9 to 1-7.

But following an objection by Pullough to the amalgamation the matter was referred to the County Executive Committee where a decision was made that the Tubber/Pullough combination had to stand as it would cause delays in the Under 21 Championship. But even though the result didn't go the way we wanted, it did start years of success for the Tubber/Ballycumber combination. Reaching our first county final in years the excitement was huge.All roads lead to Rahan on 28th September, but facing a very strong Kilcormac/Killoughey we were very unlucky to lose by three 0-6 to 0-3. Granted 1998 didn't see the combination get off to a winning start, when our Under 12's were beaten in the shield final by Kilcormac/Killoughey but it wasn't long until the winning floodgates opened for us. As a result we decided to run a minor tournament for our players and with teams coming from Tubberclair, Ballymore and St Joseph's we ran a very successful tournament on a home/ away basis. Our only team affiliated that year was our under 12's who did remarkably well to say the least. 1999 saw the first piece of underage silverware to come to the club in years when we defeated Birr in the U14B Final winning by six points in the end 0-16 to 2-4. The turn of the Century saw us reach the U14B Final again, but this time we were beaten by Kilcormac/Killoughey.

The problem for Birr is that the gap between third and fourth is similar to the gap between Kilkenny and the second best team in hurling - it might be only one ranking place, but it"s a lot more than that in reality. If ten people were asked to rank the clubs in the IFC, at least seven out of ten would put Doon third while a similar proportion would probably put Birr fourth, based on results in 2008.

Kilclonfert"s narrow win over Ballyfore in the last round kept alive their hopes of progression to the knockout stages of the Intermediate Football Championship, but getting into the last six is one thing - getting a result over Walsh Island is quite another. The Island have come through their two games so far with some ease and nothing that Kilclonfert have shown this season suggests that they can rock the boat. Stalwarts like Fergal Beacon and Declan Kelly will do their best, but they look outgunned by a Walsh Island team who have Brian and Ross Connor dominating the middle and Alan and Willie Mulhall to convert the chances that will undoubtedly ensue.

However, a quick look at some of the names available to Rhode - the McNamees, the Sullivans, the Darbys, Paschal Kelleghan, Roy Malone - and it"s hard to see a performance as poor as they put in against Shannonbridge being repeated. Ferbane have rediscovered their pride and won"t concede an inch, but Rhode are still the class act in Offaly and should prove that once again on Sunday afternoon. If both sides repeated their performance from last Sunday week, there would be every chance that Ferbane would get the four-point win that they need to guarantee their progression into the next round.

Later in the year our under 21 team made real headway in the championship by reaching the County Semi-final but were unlucky to be beaten byTullamore. Our under 14's also reached the County Final in 1986 only to lose out to Shannonbridge, while also that year our Under 21's lost the County Semi-final to Ferbane. Unfortunately the silverware in the early days was few and far between. 1983 saw Colmcille Gaels reach their second Minor Final in the space of twelve months, but Doon proved to be too good for us on the day.
