LISTEN: Tier is delighted with Geraldines progress

Geraldines player-coach Bobby Tier has been with the club for the majority of the past seven years despite a short spell with arch rivals Fairview under former manager Paul O’Donnell.

Tier was part of the team which easily defeated Piltown of Kilkenny in the last 16 of the Munster Junior Cup on Sunday.

Piltown ply their trade in the neighbouring Waterford league, hence their inclusion in the Munster Junior Cup. Bobby admits that things could not have went much better for his team.

“It was tough weather conditions up there. We got that early goal and it helped.

“It set the tone but we had to battle hard in the first half and make sure we didn’t concede.

Heading into the second half we were fairly confident that the fitness levels would come through. We are delighted overall with it now.”

Geraldines were promoted to the premier division after a dramatic penalty shoot victory over Cappamore in a play-off.

The game finished 2-2 after Geraldines squandered a 2-0 lead. Tier is happy with how his side have adapted to premier football upon their return.

“The main aim was to stay in the division and become an established premier league club.

“It was hard to keep on to some of our lads but we got on so well last year that in pre-season everybody was on board and they all wanted to work hard.

“We had a good start and got points on the board early which always helps.”

Bobby also speaks about Geraldines clash with Ballynanty in the quarter final of the Munster Junior Cup, the club’s season overall and the importance of the club to the community below.
