The Evergreen club is something of a family affair, a long

lasting one. The current officers are Dave Brady (Chairman),

Eamonn Hayes (secretary), and Gary Gibbons (treasurer).

Their three families have long been associated with the Turner's

Cross club. Take the Gibbonses for example. Back in 1987, when

Evergreen won the championship in 3B, Paul Gibbons and son Alec

figured on the team. This season, Paul's sons Ivan (one of the

this season's leading scorers) and treasurer Gary, play in the

green colours.

But it is not an exclusive club. Quite a few new players have

signed up in recent seasons. The combination of old and new is

gelling well, according to secretary Hayes: "The combined

talents (of the new and old) and the shared committment, is

proving successful and we expect to be actively involved in the

league and cup as the season comes to a close".

The club, who again play in 3B of the AUL, proudly traces its

history back to 1932. True, there have been some years in

between when Evergreen were not represented on the field but

don't say that too loudly around Turner's Cross.

Chairman Dave Brady doubles up as manager and Hayes is the team

captain. Their league bid was boosted by a recent 2 - 1 win over

then leaders Glenview and their best cup result to date was a 4 -

2 win over higher ranked Kanturk in the AOH.
