Seven a side football – The 1944 Surprise
Rovers:
Jack Brennan (Captain) – This stalwart from South Galway needs no introduction to Football fans. Excels in high fielding and long kicking.
P. Kilkelly – By his brilliant saves on Sunday last, this custodian must be a serious contender for the position lately vacated by J. McGauran.
B. Higgins – Once this astute player gets the leather in his hands, he can jockey his way through all obstacles.
Joe Whyte – Has made goal getting a racket in the game, can needle his way through anything.
Joe Egan – This stalwart defender hails from a camp bristling with a galaxy of stars, gives a sound display in victory or defeat
Denis Madden – An ex-Dublin Co. Forward. When Denny sounds the Clarion call, skin and hair flies. Opponents’ goal will have many a narrow shave.
John Joe Whyte – Needs no introduction to first class football. Can give spectators a plain or fancy exhibition.
Rangers:
Willie Corbett (Captain) – Formerly played with Newcastle Dreadnoughts. This six-footer has an advantage even over a former Kerry Captain as Willie need not spring.
Peter Curran – This custodian is well known for his cagey playing. Forwards will often find themselves snookered with Peter between the sticks.
Stephen Jordan – This De Wett who never took a wet, is always in the
peak of form. Advocates the use of nothing but Parliamentary language on the pitch.
Jimmy Burke – This nippy forward is an adept at swerving. Can drive his way through anything.
Martin Glynn – This robust player hails from Cappatagle. Never caught out of position. A master of timing and control.
