Junior Football:
Tallow 3-6 Old Parish 1-14

Old Parish were our guests at Pairc Eamonn De Paor last Friday night in the junior football championship and they were well satisfied with their visit as they emerged 2 point winners in a patchy contest. Graham Guiry opened the scoring for an Seana Phobail and in truth we were chasing the game after that. The most remarkable thing about this sedate championship clash was the performance of Mark O Brien who scored 3-2 from play – a toure de force. He’s a humble lad and no doubt will take this in his stride. Don’t rule out a call up to the Waterford senior football panel. No
end to this lad’s talent.

Old Parish were that bit more cohesive and their ability to pick off points proved decisive when Tallow drew level with 5 minutes remaining. Both teams were missing players (some of them wandering around France) but Old Parish deserved the points, just. We were rusty and this was evident at times in our distribution and and wayward kicking.

We had a number of good individual performances however.

Alan Curley was competitive and on balance more than held his own. Bob McCarthy is a natural defender and didn’t put a foot wrong. Jordan Henley is a breath of fresh air with his direct running. He’s attack minded but just needs to refine the final ball. I’ve already paid homage to Mark O Brien. His midfield partner Mikey Curley is very talented. He has vision and uses the ball intelligently. Tommy Daly has plenty of footballing ability. In this game of football you need a ball carrier; he’s well able to do it. Every game I see him in (hurling or football) Mickey Tobin is improving. The lad trains, has the right attitude. Veteran of the team, Stuart Barry, showed well for every ball and Sean Gleeson picked off a couple of points.

Tallow: Davey Tobin, Alan Curley, Bob McCarthy, Jack Tobin, Kevin Henley, Jordan Henley, Eric Hickey, Mark O Brien (3-2) Mikey Curley (0-1) Ryan Grey (0-1), Sean Gleeson (0-2), Martin Murphy, Tommy Daly , Stuart Barry, Mikey Tobin, Brian Henley, Terence McSweeney.
